    Thread: Let's see Air Lift Bagged car pics here. (Air Lift only please)

    1. 07-03-2010 10:23 PM #141


      got the XLs in. rides really nice. only thing i had an issue with is the shock was rubbing the upper shock mount so i had to trim it. but its still kinda making a squeeking noise when airing out and airing up, and sometimes on bumps. seems like its the shocks. dont know what else it could be. anyone else hear this sort of noise?

      well thats just most likely the rear bag filling up rapidly. the rear air lift shocks seem to kinda like squeek/creek a lil bit when going up and down

      hmmm well i had an issue with them at first, they were hitting the upper shock mount a lil bit and making a horrendous noise. but i trimed the mount and that noise stopped. then i took it for a test drive, no noise. then was trying to set the new ride height and what not and notice a creeking type noise and then took it for another test drive and heard it while hitting bumps too. may need some new shocks or something

      Looks really good! but why does it look like its in an awkward stance? Looks almost as if you dumped the front left and raised the right rear, only the fender to lip kiss tells me otherwise.

      found out the problem. wasnt the shocks. the bag was rubbing the control arm. i tried to repsosition the bag as much as possible, even trimming the top perch for the fitting like in the pictures in the instructions, still not enough. so looks like ill be trimming the control arm some. anyone else have to do this?

      You do have a mk 5 i'm guessing.

      Yes what wheel/tyre set up you running? we found it's the angle of the bottom arm with are wheel tyre setup just went at a serious angle on super drops the top of the bag just wasnt in far enough even though the connector is right up against the leg there was just no way of getting enough clearance on the bag.


      We had this issue as well but we didn't want to touch the control arm and create sharp edges for the bag to catch on so we went further in past what the instructions said on the top leg to get the top of the bag to sit in alot more central we slotted past the instructions and there was another skin inside the leg(it's like twin skinned well it was in mine anyway not sure if every model is the same). so we could drop the union in even further and it seems to have sorted the problem.

      we have another one to do soon so i can try and grab some pictures for you dude to try and explain a little better.

      and heres some interior shots as requested further up.

      well i trimmed the outside part of the spring perch that the fitting hits so that its actually hitting the metal underneath now. cant go any further back unless in unless i cut the frame rail. still rubs. imma trim the control a lot so that way a sharp edge wont even come close to touching.

      thats the part i meant the frame rail is twin skinned so we cut two slots through the frst skin and profiled the metal in (so never actually cut anything out of the rail just re shapped it slightly to gain the extra few mm to make the bag sit straight and clear.
