ive got the RS-72 slam bags in the rear of my caddy and the mounts on top are just cups that just sit there and hold the car up. I've heard I should chain the rear end to keep the bags from over inflating. What length should I chain it at? like 10" or 11" or what? any input is well appreciated.

there is no bolting it in, its just a cup, ive had the bags on for like 2 years now with no shocks. but these new bags I heard you need to limit the lift so they dont over inflate so all I need is shocks???

i had a bag set up with out limits, held strong and i 3 wheels and hit it with lofts of pressure, never over extended. but i guess if you want to you would stop them at there max growth at 150psi in the bag, which would get you to there max growth with out max pressure. and chain them there. but i dont find it nessisary unlress its a sleeve bags

as far as knowing how hi i can go with these bags, Ive only had these bags for a week, I had 2500 firestones in for the past 2 years so im gettin more lift now.....I'm guessin all I need is shocks from the looks of all the posts.....

I was hoping this topic was about putting in a chain bridge on air. Maybe i'll start a new topic, but I don't think anyone has a chain bridge on air. I bet it would help those 3's :biggrin:

You shouldn't have to limit them, especially since the upper mount isn't bolted in. I have to strap my rear end if I go up on a frame lift, cause the bags are bolted in and the rearend hangs down when it's not supported.

I would think you would want them to be bolted in regardless. And for some reason if you can't bolt them in you would want to limit the travel somehow.
I can just see the back end launching up real fast because theres no real weight back there, and oh nice my air line connected to the bag helped the car land back on the bag in the right spot.

Do you think that the bags are not strong enough to hold the weight of the axle. I know tension and compression are two different things but if they can handle throwing the car up in the air, they should handle picking the rear axle up.

just weld them in and cut a hole in the floor above them for acess. or weld in a nut and bolt them in. your just asking for trouble.

Over winter I'm gonna have a go at chaining my trailing arm IRS. Partly to limit travel before the shocks reach their limit,partly to try for a standing three. Will keep you posted?
