Re: Anyone interested in a schrader/bag kit?

You would most likely want to use the brackets below for mounting on the leaf springs. And we could set it up to be one schrader valve split to both bags. Would probably cost about $15 more that way because of the extra fittings and air line.

In my opinion, I wouldn't run just one line to both bags, it would not be good for load leveling, more weight on once side would try to push the air from that side to the other, further throwing off balance, same goes for going around a turn. I have helper bags on the back of our 95 Dodge Cummins dump truck, and the shraders are just run out and attached at the bottom of the bumper on either side.

You could run check valves between the two bags to keep air from transferring between them, but then you would have to add another shrader or some time of valve to release the air, which would not be hard to do at all either, just not worth it to me.

Thank You for that info! I'm an idiot when it comes to bags. Never used them. I definitly don't want the air to transfer. But was hoping for the ease of inflation and deflation.

Thank You!
I would not reccommend this unless you have the bags lined up exactly the same. I found that my hangers sat differently due to the off centered weight from my diff, this caused the bags to sit at slightly different angles. Which then forced different pressures to have the same ride height. My $0.02

Re: Anyone interested in a schrader/bag kit?

Definitely run one schrader per bag if going that route. The schrader valves can be placed side by side to ease filling/purging of air. I did my 68 beater like that w/both fittings behind the flip up license plate.

My truck has shraders mounted on either side of the frame for some helper bags in the middle of the springs. I won't be running shraders, but I thought it was a pretty cool setup for being as old as the truck.

Cheap & effective. My 68 was done this way for almost 2yrs of daily use before I swapped in a still basic tank/comp set-up. It worked so well I did a schrader set-up in the 74 as an AOL type of kit. Since the 74 already had holes drilled into the bed floor in front of each wheel tub, that's were I put the schraders on it. Still easy enough to get to them despite one being on each side.

I can understand that! That's the route I need to go then. I like the idea that SCOTTI has with the 2 valves somewhere easy to get to. Thanks Guy's!

Absolutely! How can you put a price on stopping your wife from saying "You're dragging your front bumper again"? Is it alright if I email you direct? I have parts (tank, comp), but need some advice. let me know, thanks. Eric

Question Re: Anyone interested in a schrader/bag kit?

I've got a 70 1/2 ton suburban and i would be changing over to dropped spindles and disc brakes, what else would i need with this kit to make it complete. I am not looking for anything fancy but i do want this to be a very functional kit since i am making this burban into a DD. I am very new to the airbag world and i am debating on whether or not to do a static or bag drop? help me out.

How low are you wanting to go?

Personally, I wouldn't do a schrader set-up on the front as anything more than a temporary thing; the rear isn't quite as critical on tire wear. The pressures need to remain @ a determined amount to maintain alignment (something important for a DD). When only using schraders, there's no way to verify that pressure is being maintained. Of cource wouldn't really have to do this daily, but it would be like checking your tire pressures every day before leaving the house.

I never thought about all of those things. thx. I'll just probably go with a static drop then and be done with it.

That's how I did my 68. Static 5-6" drop up front & bags in place of the coils in the rear.

AVS JASON.......What it cost me to go this route with the brackets you recommended in your post for an '85 shipped to 31763? going to have a 5 or 6" drop in the rear.
Thanks
