You wil not have any traction problems if you set it up properly, by properly I mean forward. What kind of V8 you using, any pictures?

Reverse 4 links are sooooooooooooooo bad. Tired of reading the same crap.

The bagging 101 sticky is opinion too when it comes to links. It's Tony's opinion, not fact.

If you're worried about planting a ton of power with a 4 link, the bags will cause you more problems than a reverse ever will.

This is not an oppinion. With a truck with any sort of power, a reverse fourlink of any kind will not work well at all. It directs all of the force in the wrong direction, where as a forward four link will create a downpressure, causing traction. By the way, I like the Isuzu-looks hot

How is it that bags will cause problems hooking up? How could a fully adjustable spring rate be detrimental to traction?

Things like vehicle dynamics, instant center...basic physics..aren't opinion.

I could see it causing problems because the air spring may never be as stiff as a standard coil (it is only a rubber bag filled with air). And this may cause traction issues. But this is only my oppinion.

Keep driving in circles then. Don't ever use reverse. Under your way of thinking it would be the same thing.

Wheel hop will stop anyone from hooking up, with any kind of spring, air or otherwise.

Ever try to plant any sort of power in reverse? Doesn't react too well. By the way, got any side shots of your ride body dropped?

Well, the only traction issue I have is on wet pavement. If I bump it up to 100 psi, I've got 3000 lbs of load capacity in the back...and trust me, those springs get stiff. I can tailor my launch to virtually any condition...something you can't do with leafs or coilovers...
I stand corrected. I figured just the fact that it is a rubber spring, it would be more likely to not get too stiff. But I guess I was wrong. Which is good, cuz I was considering bags for my V-8 Sonoma (I doubt I'll use air though, I am a hydraulic fan).
