any help or suggestions
thanks

If you're already running a bag setup for the front, it's definately worth it to bag the back instead of dropping it with components. It's not gonna be much of a price difference and it saves you the hassle of spending money twice.
If you're gonna do a frame to axle kit later on, you're probably gonna want to spend the money for a four link and get rid of everything in the back anyway. Trust me...... don't spend the money twice. Just bag it right away.

thanks for the advice.........i know 7" is low but i have the air lift shocks on it right now so it is adjustable(they lift pretty high) but just up, not down, so i was thinkin with a 7" it would be fine cause i could jsut drop it to cruise......and i was wonderin this also casue i just got a system and kinda ran out of money so the the leaf springs r a lot cheaper at teh moment

Some have removed it but i guess it absorbs the excess fumes from your tank, it can be relocated by the filler neck or farther back by extending the lines, not sure if you have to remove the bed or not, i havent moved mine yet but its in the way.
