LMAO.... i think thats the first time I've ever seen that sort of problem. Here is an alternative, tho you will need some new fittings.

Get this to come out of the bag:


And this to go off of that:


The top piece has female threads on the side you can't see.

Son of a bitch are you serious? I can't believe no one else has run into this. I know I can do it with more fittings, I just didn't really want to do that. Oh well, I guess I might just come out of the upper arm or something....shit.

I had that problem, lol.. I just tightened the fitting down, bolted the bag into the top cup, and tightened the fitting a bit more to it was almost hitting the bolt head (I've got Slams.. no studs)..

Ok then change of plans. When I run my line out of the upper A-Arm, will 1/2 line bend enough to go towards the back?

you should be able to take off the nut, and then the insert piece that is in the middle. so just the threads are left. it should give you enuf room to turn it all the way around without hittng the studs.

When I installed the front on my truck, i originally ran the airline out a hole right beside the shock hole. I hit the switch a few times and it kinked the line immediately. So I ended up using the 90 out of the bag. I didnt like how close to the exhaust the line was coming out from the a-arm anyway.

yea..what first impressions said. sorry had to much to drink last night still getting over it
You and me both. Bleh.

Anyways, yeah, just take the fitting apart and it should go on. I had no problems with mine doing that however.

And Grim, no, 90s don't slow it down much at all. I've got em all over, and its still fast.

Yep you guys are right, take off the nut, and pull the stainless insert out very carefully. Stick a punch in it and wiggle it and it should pop right out. I just measured a 1/2" npt x 1/2" line 90, and it gained an even 1/2" of clearance.

You must not have done somethin right, cuz I have plenty of room without the line hitting anything.

Crap I can't take that stainless insert out of the fitting. Is it suppose to be easy or hard to take out? Anyone have any techniques to take it out?
