      Run it through the grommet behind the gas pedal. Please search just like other forums.

      There is no grommet because your grommet is technically for your DBC system. Run the power wire through the main wiring harness that is located directly behind your "snorkel" that runs all the main ECU wiring down from your rain tray to behind you battery. There should be all the main power wires running through the firewall at that spot through a large grommet, unclip grommet ziptie, stretch grommet to allow for new power wire to go through also, then re-zip tie the grommet securely.

      Also for the rear's why don't you just use a nutsert like you are supposed to do to keep the upper mount in place??

      Which rear bags are you using? What shocks are you using? Something here doesn't make sense...

      Dan, if you want help in the technical forums here you need to answer ALL questions that we ask, not just 1 or 2 of them. What rear shocks are you running? And as for the airlift rep stating that, if you could find the exact post and wording maybe there is a miscommunication between what you read and what was really implied due to certain situations that the original poster of the thread was facing.

      In my experience I have yet to have a bag bottom out before a shock...you would have to be using a shock that was longer than the OEM shocks for this to be possible

      Well i found out what happened. I disnt center the bag in the lower spring cup enough, so when i fell into the pothole, the lip of the cup pierced into the plastic bottom of my bags. As for my shocks, i have my rokkor shocks lol

      I decided to take a last effort chance at fixing the bag temporarily until i order some firestone rears

      Thanks for answering the questions. I don't know where you read what you read but even with OEM shocks (long) the shock still bottoms out before the airlift bags do. I would HIGHLY recommend using a nutsert on the top to keep the bracket in place. As for the bottoms, that is unfortunate to hear, installation errors are quite common for people without lots of experience or mechanical knowledge. What i would recommend as the cheapest fix is to just get another rear bag. It would save on the cost of firestone bags and brackets and be the quickest solution

      i have bilstein rear shocks which allow me to go higher than stock, i havent had any trouble with it pulling apart. i used to have raceland/rokker shocks and they top out way early, you wont have any problems using them and a nutsert

      This dosn't look safe! Did you follow the instructions when you installed your setup or was it done by a professional? Where is your nutcert?
