yea im sure he has the c-notch but the thing is they have a bar that goes from the frame to the axle and it will not let it go that low at all cus my bar is almost touching the frame cus its mounted under the frame and not on the side and i have 5"drop in the rear, im thinking he might have removed or modified it or idno im trying to find some more info on it

his cardomain header says its sold, im thinking its not tubbed. a local club here in my town(sickness) has all kinds of tahoes/yukons on 24s and they're not tubbed. and they lay that low.

when you say "bar" are you talking about the trailing arm?
if so you could have one made out of tube & that would give you more room.

its whatever this arm is... i dont remember what its called

think it would be sturdy if made out of pipe? or maybe just modify it and make it to where it makes a angle

That is one of the trailing arms you they can be swapped with tubular ones just as stated above...every bagged ride with 4 links use tubular arms.

if i understand suv correctly most have a sort of coil over set up. its set up just like a 4 link with a bag on axle except with a spring on axle..does that mean u can just replae it with a bag?? no i dont think. replace the bars with like some sd ones...i have seen a guy with a bagged tb move the mount on the frame more torwards the front of the truck. also i dunno if you know but brandon(comegetsome) has a bagged tahoe. maybe u can grab some pics for him brandon of how your control arms are.

if you want to go that low then you would need tubular bars. im guessing those trailing arms are going to push the axle farther back, so it wouldnt be centered in the fenderwell. due to clearance i would say tubular bars that make would make a hortizontal "h" shape, keeping your pinion angle straight.

EDIT: i dont know if you have chose or gotten your bags yet but ART makes this spring... http://www.ridetech.com/products/Airspring_2000lb_taper_rear_w_GM_Mounts-994-50.html

yea the bag can go right in place of the spring, i think i will be getting the ART rear bag set up and put a bolt in c-notch and make a tubular arm, because as of now i just want the tire to rest in the wheel well, not tubbing and laying frame yet

yeah the picture of the blue tahoe is a little misleading because of how he is parked, on a slope. It probly doesnt look that low on level ground.
