I got my brackets online. Its a easy install. 2500 up front fit with little cutting. And the rear 2500 fit also with out cutting. I put 2600's up front with lots cutting and the rear lots of cutting and some frame cutting to get my elco low as i can with the 20's.

If you keep those rims you wont have to worry about cutting just the spring pouch in the front with 2500.

My advice is try to put 2600 up front atleast. I had 2500 up front and it took alot of psi to lift and rough ride. 2600 less psi and better ride.

go RE7s all around..

trim will be about the same as a 2600, just a tiny bit bigger cause they dont balloon,.. WAY worth it for the quality tho

Heres a list of the bags. The 2600 are .25 wider and seat lower and more hieght than the re7. Which is why i got DeNominator-II 2600.

I had the 2600 in the rear with 4 1/2 valves and with only 80 psi it would hop the rear off the ground an inch with just on click. I myslef plan on buying 2600 for the rear. I had bought the set deal from "air bag it" with 2500 and 2600. And have the 2600 up front right now.

heres a video with 100psi, 4 valves, and 2600 bags .

Air Bag It is not a good idea to start from. I would try the forum sponsor first.
The DeNominator is a cheap rip off of the Air Lift Dominator air bags, which ballon. You don't want those because their sizes are one up from what they are, example is a 2500 lb bag is the size of a 2600 lb. air bag. The same goes for the 2600, which is the size of a 2800 which means more cutting.

I would suggest getting RE7's because of their internal bump stop design, no other air bag company offers this which is a step since it eliminates the need for a external bump stop (finding a place to put an external is pretty hard sometimes, plus it's all in one which is always a plus).
As for compressors, look in ViAir's compressor line, the 380's 350's 480's and so on. As for air brackets, you can get bolt in cups for the front or you can free float them meaning that the just in within the spring pocket and lca. as for the rear, you will need to get the lower air bag axle bracket welded in (although someone may tell you/suggest a bolt on version it will fail on you). Your norm for the front is around 80 psi or more depending on your engine size as for the rear, there isn't much in there even with the set-up so your pressure is about 50 psi or so.

Check out this link to a thread that is filled with info. You will need to know this if you are going to install the system yourself (welding excluded). General info as well as helpful tips/tricks on how to use your system effectively.

Here is how my car sits on 20s. 1.5in from frame to ground.



This is my tank setup a few weeks ago. I have the 380's pumps which im going to mount one per side. Plus got a nirtogen tank mounted in the rear by the tailgate. I plan on covering up the valves. The black box is for the system one 15 L7.



150 for all four bags cant beat that deal.

$150 will turn into more if you buy from AIM. There's is only a few and I mean a VERY few parts from there that are worth buying and using in a set-up. All in all if you find the right parts and spend a little extra, you won't have to pay for it in the long run. Also don't forget to use a water trap with those comps, nothing worse than rust coming from the inside of your set-up disbursing to the rest of it, i.e. valves, fittings, line and bags.
