Just like the title says. I need a dual convoluted bag that has 8 inches travel and has the weight capacity of at least 800#s. I dont like sleeve bags as they cant take the pressure and they wont work very well in my over-engineered complex setup.

If i cant find a bag with that much travel and i havto settle with a 6incher then i will lose 3.5inches of overall travel. With a 8 inch travel bag i will get just about 10.5 inches and be able to pull 3s.

And not a 3 where the tire just hangs down or is barely off the ground, a tucked n sucked 3 :biggrin:

Do you have pics of both up and down? I'm also looking for some tall bags for my 85 Cadillac.

Thanks

Don't buy stuff from AIM Ind. They just generally Suck.

Buy from almost anyone else. There are also good bags for sale on Ebay recently that have a Much longer stroke than your typical firestone 2500#'s

I do like the slams but max psi is a little low for me. I know for a fact though that the Phoenix Bags that Aim carries have very high burst limits, round 500+ psi.

And $100 a bag seems a little steep for me, rather pick up a pair at Aim for $80 instead.

And ive had some bad experiences with Airlift, they can kiss my ass for all i care.

slam bags are underrated on the pressures as are most air system parts. i know of slam bags that have 650 psi in them and theyre in hoppers. my contitechs are rated at 120 but ive had them past 425. tanks are rated at 150 and have been past 425. ive never seen the aim bags, but the slams are really nice bags.
