Hey guys, I know this is an old thread but I need some help here. I am installing my AIRLIFT kit in my fifth gen. I also have this cup shaped part in the upper spring mount. I feel tht if I leave that cup in there it would eventually cut into the air bag. Anybody have that happen?You shouldn't have removed that "cup like thing" at the top spring mount. It's there to keep the spring from being displaced whne the shock fully extends. Put it back.
Maybe replace the rear springs while you're at it? You can get factory height replacement springs for like $80 from Summit if I remember correctly. I did springs, new Gas-A-Just shocks and the air lift system all at once and it made a huge improvement.Thank you all for the info and pics. I’m getting ready to upgrade my suspension. I have Bilstein shocks for the front in the garage. Figured I’d change sway bars too. I turn my own wrenches and literally...a shade tree mechanic, FL Live Oaks.
As such, I’ll be in my back and want to learn as much as possible...the lil details that get ya.
My air shocks work but have yet to find that perfect air pressure. On occasion, my rear rubs the fender lip.
