      I'm gonna work on the lower thing. The only thing that sucks is I can't roll with it to low...maybe I'll just always carry a spare pass. side axle in my trunk
      I got my camera back from Best Buy today. I'm gonna have some more pics posted soon. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
      Thanks for all the compliments guys!

      But when you have air, you have an obligation to be on the ground.

      agreed, if you are on air that frame had better touch the ground, or atleast be lower then you can drive at a static height

      yeah yeah. I wouldn't drive this low my control arms literally rest on the fenders right now. Its one thing if they hit when you hit a bump its another thing to actually be sitting on them at all times.
      I'm gonna work on getting it lower for sure I would just like another option I don't want to hack into the engine bay at all...

      It obviously stops on something when I let all the air out of the bags. I'm not saying I couldn't drive it, just saying I wouldn't.
      Mason-Tech's strut is 2" shorter than the stock strut I thought I was gonna be around 21" gtf in the front...
      edit: I really just need to try and get under there to see what the hold up is. You don't think its the CVs on the sub-frame do you?

      I don't think its the axles really...Its gotta be the c-arms, I can actually hear them hit the fender.

      there isnt any way it is the c arms chris.. i rode lower then that, at h2o, without hitting my arms or riding on my arms, on tims wheels.
      check to see if the bag isnt fully collapsing, that could be a hold up.
      Who knows...

      It definitely deflates all the way. The car comes to a stop and I can hear it hit something.
      I'm not trying to turn this into a big dick competition or anything. I mainly got bags because I like the control I have not because I wanted to drag my ish on the ground....although it would be fun to do every now and then.

      Tire size will effect actual height off the ground (giving a low gtf without the suspension work to back it), but come about 21", even small tires start hitting things. Control arms hitting will stop you, but they also bind at extreme angles, and that not only will stop you, but can cause the joints to snap and horrible things to happen, depending on vehicle speed. Upper arms also bind on the spring hats. Lower arms have clearance. CVs have plenty of room.
      If the car still rolls, your arms are probably binding.
