its a 82 malibu wagon. i think the brackets are good for the vehicle, i just think 2500 and 9000 are just not cutting it. maybe 2600?

Ok, 2600's do give a little more lift, but there width gets a lot bigger than the 2500's. See you should be able to lock the front up at the same height as if you had juice. the front suspenion on all SLA type cars is always limited to the capabilities of the control arms. That is why I say you might want to look into making different brackets. As for the rear, I am using the same style bag as a 2500, and Dan uses 2600 all the way around. The rear all depends on clearance problems.

what Curt is trying to say, in his confusing canadian way, is, that sometimes the brackets do not make full use of the stroke of the bags..

if you're dropped all the way, and the bag is not fully compressed, then thats a problem.. because now that much of the stroke of the bag is wasted...

instead of new brackets, you may be able to take a piece of 4" black pipe cut to the height you want, weld a flat plate on top with a hole in the center, and use it on the bottom of the bag, like a spacer..

Instead of spacing it, you could just lower the bracket so that the bag fully compresses, and gives more lift.
ok, I'll bite,



how in the world would you lower a bracket??
