Installed the Airlift 1000 package from Summit Was well Packaged and everything seems to work OK. What holds the spacer in the bottom of the spring in place. Mine look like they need to be adjusted into place. Is this normal.... ?
GUYS. thanks for the input, I did run two lines, and the bags are checking 15 lbs today. It is a little firm, but the rear end is higher, which I wanted. The handling is better, although I was sceptical of that. I am goin to re-adjust the hard rubber "spacer" to sit better in the spring, I am not satisfied with it partly sticking out. On my 85, I did have to remove a "cup looking thing" from the top of the springmount , in order for mine to fit. I guess that cup is to eliminate bottoming out of the spring, and to hold the spring in place. Anyway, the air bag now does that....... Thanks for the info, and I have monitored the forum for a while, and all the free advise is right on target, and also FREE>>>>>>>> what a great country... Tomahawke
Maybe I did something wrong when I installed mine. The instructions said the rubber spacer went on top of the air bag, so to me that says the nipple on the air bag is pointing up. I took the spring out to install the air bag as I was doing some other suspension work at the same time. I removed the upper cup, ran the air line down through the hole left from removing the bolt out of the cup. Even with the shock removed and the suspension hanging, the spring is still tight against the upper cushion, so no fear of the spring coming out. It sounds like everyone else put the bag in so the airline was at the bottom?
I have contacted Tech Support at AirLift. They advised me that the valve and spacers are installed on the bottom and not to remove the cup. The cup prevents the spring from being dislodged during full jounce.
