iight, i know i know. i jump around on what kinda bags to put under the regal.
but after seeing the regal that mavriccustoms did! damn im blown away. it has 2500bags in the front and F9000 tapered sleeve bags in the back, the sleeves give it about 4 more inches of lift over the 2600 bag idea.
so is that set up all that bad? it looked like it could really move and i likes the way the ass was so high!

taper sucks i would never use them cuz they don't hold shit for weight but they can be used
the F9000 #1500. they seem to get that regal up to hop.
also its what air ride tech calls to use

i have that exact set up on my malibu and the 9000 and pretty decent. the 2500 suck though, not a lot of travel.
i think the ride could have been better though.

an F9000 mounted over the axle is going to ride better than a double convoluted 2500# bag. Two bags each capable of supporting 1500lbs at 100psi - that's 3000 lbs! Unless you're putting them on a 1 ton truck you'll be fine.

you have to use bump stops and limiting straps with the F9000's though. Straight from the Air Ride site "An external bumpstop and an extension stop (limiting strap or the shock absorber) MUST be used to prevent the airspring from exceeding the compressed or extended dimensions. If these dimensions are exceeded, severe damage to the airspring and possibly the vehicle will result.. " Don't have to do this with the double convoluted bags.

I'm not sure but I think the F9000's are ported for single 3/8" ports or something like that.

If you want specifics on Firestone bags or Air Ride products contact one of their sales persons.

thats what i did and being that mt tank is right above them it really is pretty fast.i had to drill out the hole on the mount to fit the bigger line and fitting. a limiting strap would be a good idea, i already toasted one bag messing around.
