that was on the rear of the car correct? do you have the suspension limited so it doesnt over extend the bag if the suspension drops?
yes it was the rear, and no I don't have shocks or anything, should I chain it? I think my trailer arms are maxing out because I only got like 2-3 more inches of lift compared to my 2500lb firestones......what you recomend?

you need shocks or even chains to limit the bags at 11" tall, thats the maximum inflated height. if you are all the way up and you go over a pothole or a set of train tracks, that can be enough to over extend the bag and tear it. looks like what happend to you.

i think the max height on firestone 2500s is either 8 or 9" tall, and the slams are 11". so theres your 2-3" difference. if you want more lockup height, you need to look into getting a pair of 13" bags.
