RideTech ART rear airbar questions

Who has the Air Ride Technologies (ridetech) rear airbar NOT the roadgrader? What mods did you do to make it lay frame? What adjustments did you make to eliminate wheel hop? Please post only real answers. I know there is a pinion angle problem creating wheel hop, I specifically want to know what you did to fix it. Not trying to be a jerk but lets keep to the facts please.

Re: RideTech ART rear airbar questions

are you talking about the triangulated air bar or the parallel version?

The biggest problem is the bracket that clamps on the gastank crossmember, its way too low and the driveshaft will hit it. Youll need to get a new crossmember or weld and modify the stock one quite a bit.

Re: RideTech ART rear airbar questions

I have two lower bars where the leaf springs were and a triangulated top mount that goes to the gas tank cross member from the diff. Fabricating is no longer an issue for me as long as I have drawings or can make them... I have access to a full shop as well as cnc machines.
