I took some pictures to show to air ride, to inquire about some taller cups as bottomed out I'm still at 50psi in my front bags. I was thinking if I had a slighlty taller cup ny pressure bottomed out would be lower maybe 25psi, also I could run less at ride height (100-105 psi now) and I would get more lift at my max pressure 145psi. What do you guys think?

Slam's first production run a few years ago had leaking problems from the port, hell I have one bag that does it.


They fixed it though.


Slams lift higher at lower pressures than Firestones, don't expand outward as they lift, and people who have switched from 'Stones to Slams say they ride better. :D

My truck takes about 65psi in the front to lift up. The bag doesnt get any taller from 0-65psi. It just takes a lot of pressure to get the heavy truck up. I highly doubt 25psi would come close to lifting up a truck. My KP takes like 50psi also to lift the back end up.

Steve says he runs 85psi in th front at ride height .. at 85psi I'm nearly dragging in the front.

Just wondering.....

Why do you want more lift? Do you have trouble clearing certain road/parking lot obstacles? :think:
No, not reallly .. just trying to get the most out of my suspension. I was more interested in being able to run a little lower air pressure at ride height.

i have the same front setup as you with SS bags. ride height is about 80psi or about 4-4.5 inch drop in the front i have driven around with about 70-75 but thats a bit too low with stock tires

86 on the passenger side, 95 on the driver :D Comes out to a 4 1/2" front drop or so.

Can't remember exactly what I run in the rear since it changes a lot, usually around 70-80 psi depending on how much gas is in my tank.

I've driven with 70-75 psi in the front and that is almost dragging the ground :anitoof:

I have the digital guages in my truck, so I don't know how accurate they really are...but these are the numbers I run. My truck gets great lift as well, and i'm on Firestones.

I have the cool ride and not the arms and my ride height is about the same as Steve's, just a tad lower PSI on both sides.
