Also any issues with what you've done and how did you fix it. I have 3 in blocks I plan to redrill and pull a leaf . Is anyone running this same setup? ( I also have air shocks)

I have no complaints out of mine. I get about 4in of lift out of mine fully aired up and the ride isn't bad... once I finish lowerin it I think I'll have to relocate my upper mount bc my shock may bottom out.

Honestly I'm only going this low in the rear so it don't look so funny when I finish bagging the front... eventually I'll bag the rear too but the front seems the easiest to start with

I'm in the same boat as this as well, just got an 18mm drill bit do the holes. What I'd love to know, is actually how people work out where these holes are meant to be, not just "where should they be?", but in fact how do you work it out.

What are you running? I have the Monroe Highjackers. They were a novelty at first, and yes, they were useful. Now I have issues with the ancillary hose kit that came with them. Plus....the damned Schrader valve broke on the day that I was hauling 4 titans on huge tires that I picked up of CL. Left me hanging on bumpstops the whole way home.
