between the battery wire to the on of the pressure switch. That way you are able to control when the system initially turns on or not.

I'll see if I can find some pictures, it's not of a caddy but it's the same principle of what you need to do.

Keep in mind that some people say "CUT" when all your really doing is making clearance for the bag so that it won't blow up/get damaged.

What are you running up front? If it's 2600 bags, your going to have to cut some of the pocket, if it's a 2500 bag you will need to trim. Either processes will need you to run your finger 360 degrees around the bag with your finger, preferably your index. If your finger touches metal, keep at it till you don't feel anything.

Best thing to do if it's your first time, TAKE YOUR TIME on it. Start off little then grind. NOTE
You can take off A LOT, but it's hard to put it back if you have taken off too much.

any actual pictures of how much of the front spring pocket gets removed when bagging a 80-92 caddy? the diagrams with the kit are fairly cheezy. thanks.
Here's a couple pictures of spring pockets. Notice that for the 2600, you will need to cut off a fair amount of the pocket in order for it to clear when deflated so as it is not to rub on anything metal.
For the 2500, you will see that the pocket is just trimmed from the bottom and maybe a little on the sides, but not as much.

2600








2500




Clearance when deflated



hope this helps.

You take out the shocks and spings. The sway has 4 connections, 2 on the frame and 1 on each lower control arm.
Sorry no pictures at the moment. Yes sir, you will need to. Offsetting is basically making your brackets work with your bag to give the bag a more linear motion between the two fixed points.

Solid welds that won't break. Make sure the weld areas look like a roll of coins pushed over.
