anyone have pics of one up close, ie, where it bolts up, on both ends. im trying to make a custom setup for a friend, but i dont want to make him spend the money on a cylinder if he cant use it. is there a bolt or a not that you can use to tighten the short end to a strut mount, or does it HAVE to be mounted the other way around?

why upside down?

youre saving on volume but losing on lifting force..

That's the second time you've got me thinking - ALL FOR NOTHING!

I was trying to work out why it should be different if mounted the other way round, then I saw your reply!

The other time was when you told me my air spring mounting/ride height idea would give me no lift. I had to re-examine my idea - WHICH WAS OKAY IN THE FIRST PLACE!

:cheesy: :cheesy: :cheesy:

i have my bags mounted upside down in my marquis simply because it is easier to screw in an air fitting from the bottom of the bag then to try and reach all the way to the top of the coil pocket, and with the firestone bag it had the single bolt in the bottom and my coil pocket had a ingle hole in the top already so it was one less hole i had to drill
