Re: I am getting excited about my Panel!!

Hotter than a firecracker today! But I still managed to get the rear air bags installed.... (Had to strap the front end down because the balancing point was too far back without an engine and front clip on it.) WES

Re: I am getting excited about my Panel!!

I also fitted our custom boltless rear bumper. I had a lot of trimming in some areas and adding material in the corners. These rear bumpers wer designed for the puckups not the panels and suburbans. However I have the technology to make it work.. WES

Re: I am getting excited about my Panel!!

Thanks guys. There's a little more fitting to do with the bumper, but it's close. WES

Looking good.
It's time to temporarily hang one front fender to see where it sits.

Re: I am getting excited about my Panel!!

Wes,... your lower bag "cups" are kind of a generic tall size.
You can easily shorten these to get more drop out of the front.
They are easy to remove because you can deflate the bag to un-bolt them.

Some even cup the lower a-arms and mount the bag directly to the a-arm.

Re: I am getting excited about my Panel!!

Thank you lolife99. They go plenty low for me.. lol I am not trying to drag frame. I just want the ability to change ride heights if needed to keep my front tires from rubbing when I turn. On another note, I just received these two boxes... I think there is going to be more progress soon...

The only reason I suggest lowering the cup height,... is to help keep your ride height low, with the correct amount of air in the front bags.
You'll be surprised how high the front is.
It won't be as low a 4/6 drop.
And if you drive with less air the ride will be terrible.
Just my 2 cents,...
