hey guys,
well i was trying to pull a three the other day, and i took the corner and dumped the back side, and when it started to pull up, the inside of the wheel well hit my tire and cut it up. not real bad just scraped all the lettering off and put some ugly cuts in it. but, i have the air ride sleeve bags in back and they only get like 7" lift, and since this winter i'm going to be putting in a 4 link, if while i'm at it i put in 13 inch bags could i get it to lift higher in back, so the wheel well would clear over the top of the tire? or is that a bad idea? plus i think high lockup in the rear looks cool anyways, but would i need to get a slip yoke or anything for the driveshaft like the hydraulics guys do? I already cut down the wheel well so that it has about half inch more clearance than before, so it might not even hit anymore but i thought bigger bags might be the way to go, what do you guys think?

nah it wasn't rubbing when it was dumped, it was the lifting side of the car, the rear wheel wells are pretty low and it doesn't lift that much in back, so when the car tilted to pull a 3, the wheel well pulled straight into the top of the tire. i figured that maybe with the 13 inch bags i could lock the back up higher so that when the body rolls over to pull the front wheel up, it would already be higher up than the tire. here's a picture to give you the idea of the height of the wheel wells on the tire, this is fully dumped though
