Everyone says to use the 2500s because you don't have to cut as much, but how much more lift would you get out of the 2600s rather than the 2500s...and would it be easier to hop or be able to hop higher with the 2600s?

2500s and 2600s offer the same amout of lift out of your front suspension. People with V8's go with 2600s cause it's a more powerful and heavier engine. There are more advantages to 2600s up front, like it takes like half the pressure to lift to the same height as 2500s, and this consquently is a better ride cause ride height is at a lower pressure... but then again, it IS a lot that ya have to cut out. Strength of the frame isnt an issue... it's just.. most dont wanna cut that much out.

Would it have any effect on the hopping? Like since the bigger bags take less to lift, would be it easier to hop and would it hop higher than the smaller ones?

So Matthew..

mann what about if you put the big ass semi/dump truck/whatever bags on there mannnn could you hop real high mannnn itd be hard to make them fit and itd be 4 feet off the ground laid out mannn but you could hop and fly away couldnt you mannnn?

Also, Matthew, how many cubic centimeters of air does a standard Firestone 2600 bag contain when "limp"?

Yea I think the 224c bags only lift like .1 inch taller than the 255c bags.

the front suspension maxes out before the bag does. the 224c will not give you the full 8" of lift cause the suspension does not have 8" of travel.

outline of what i cut out from the passenger's side (i ended up having to cut a little more out at the back edge)

driver's side this looks WAY ugly in the pic. i cleaned things up a lot after i took this pic. i also had to grind some more out in certain spots for more clearance, clarence..

you get the general idea though

later,
nate

The front is a lever setup... youll get 10 inches, give or take a little, of lift with practically any bag.
That without dropped spindles? Mine don't lift no 10 inches
