When I try droppin a back corner I still can't raise the front tire like you said. But I don't have the hieght like you have. And I think the front is WAY heavier than the back. I'm still workin on an upgrade on bags so maybe that'll make a difference. The slam 7's are supposed to get 11 inches which is at least 2 inches more than my firestone 2600's.

Max around 225, and that's most of the time now that it's not my daily anymore. I need at least 150 to get it up in front, and it gives me a few more inches around 200. Of course the back goes up easy as hell.

I wonder what would happen if you tried to put a 13 inch bag in the front? You would have to rework the cups to change the angles so that it doesnt bow out as much as a front bag normally does. Im guessing that is the reason they advertise them for use in the rear only. The way they are made, they like to expand upward so by forcing them to bend I wonder what would happen. Would definitely help is getting the front up nice and high.

Yeah, I was thinking about extending the cups. I would have to decide which I really want, to go high or to still lay frame. I'm already changing the bags to slams, mainly for the higher presure reasons and a little extra lift. I got a 93 towncar, so if I find out what it takes to hit 3 I'll let you know.

An 8in bag will basically extend the front end all the way. I would Get some nice check valves for the front valves, Chain the rear end, Place a litte weight on it and see what happens.. I could take my old cutty and jack up the front and my back left corner and the dump my front left and hit it back up and it would damn near hit the back bumper from the 3 wheel, but then would go right back down because there was no weight or chains.

Wouldnt get any higher unless you modify things a little, but it will let you lay it out and still get the max lift. You have to cut the cups more to get the drop to lay frame and with the higher lift of these bags you can still get back to full ride height.

main thing to worry about is making sure you have enough air pressure built up in your 2 corner bags.. Cuz if not the car will squat when you try to 3 wheel..
