a few months ago i found firestone airbags that are 2 inches shorter than stock that fit right in so should work out perfectly. well i lost the info and now myself and scott will be trying to get this info again. Hopefully you guys can help us on this also. Im sure other manufactures also have a bag set up for us.

i didnt put one in yet but here we go baby ;)

"The F9100 is our newest airspring development. With a 6.5" diameter and a 2000 lb. load capacity, it is perfect for truck/SUV/wagon installations that require some extra "oomph"! In addition to the "universal" installation possibilities of this new airspring, the upper cap and lower piston have been designed to fit directly into a GM rear coilspring mount. This means NO adapter mounts needed! We have also located the air inlet on the side of the upper cap for easy airline routing...no more trying to gain access to the cramped area between the frame and the body to install the airlines!"

Tony, how did they work out? Do they still work with the leveling system? Any problems?
I would love to get these as well. Especially if they are just plug and play for the stock bags and still use the factory leveling arms!

NORCAL, have you used these?

Hey Guys,

thanks scott. i talked to tony at airride a month ago about these just had the tranny issue and all that which was more important. I apprecaite you spending the money and testing these out scott. the firestone bags you can drop in but i cant find info on the firestone dammmm it...... the firestone could hold more weight. The air ride bag set up is 2000 pounds rated so we should be fine.

ill call tony again i was sponsered thru them years ago with my old s10 ss. Ill see how much he can swing a deal for us. If not summit carrys airride and have killer deals.

Seeing how scotts results are we can go from there. and you can use the air levelers also. Seeing that the truck will sit lower and bags are smaller you will need to adjsut the arms but thats a no brainer.

I told him that I wanted to lower my SS with shorter bags and he told me that these would drop it 3", so I'm sure that that would be starting from stock ride height and they cost $299 plus shipping. He stated that the shipping should be $20 or so. I'll let you guys know when I get them in.

God Bless!

That sounds like a good deal because their website lists them for $195 per bag + shipping.

Those are nice quality bags for sure. Like to see what the feed-back will be. Be nice to have a set-up you control from the dash to raise or lower as you like. That and the adjustable front coil-overs would
give you any ride height you want. Thanks

guys since the bags are shorter you need to make sure you dont overextend them when you mess with teh air bags. I have shocks taht are about 20 inches extended and 12 collapsed. With 3 inch shorter bags and stock shocks and lets say you mess with levelers and get full lift you might over extended the bag
