1 valve per corner

i was wondering how bad is running just 2 valves for the front....we start the bagging my truck this weekend, and i was only gonna run 2 valves for the front, so is the air transfer really that bad?....any info anyone can give would be great...

Air transfer will be moderate, even if you keep your sway bar. To reduce it tho, you can relocate the shocks to behind the control arm, and that will help a lil.

personally, I would run two valves at each corner. See what some other guys that only have a f/b setup have to say about it first before you do anything. ;)

IMO...

definately run 4 valves in the front. dude down the street only has 2 up front and his sh*t is all over the place when he turns. looks like his truck is gonna fall over on its side.

i ran just FB for awhile, if you can, i would really reccomend saving for the f,b,s,s.... its just so much better. the f/b setup will work fine, but the difference between the two is really night and day. handling is sooo much better

Yeah, i have FB on my s10 right now because my wheels were to wide in the back w/fbss..when i hit s/s the wheels rubbed on the frame, but now that I got smaller wheels, I probably will be upgrading..WHen i take our offramp turn here my truck leans like there is no tomarrow, thats why i have hot chicks in the passanger side when crank er right they have an excuse to fall on me :D hahaha jk, but save the money for sure and run fbss!

I'm puting a F/B on my dime. I'll be keeping the sway bar and relocating the shocks. I don't think it should be THAT bad, but then again I've been thinking of just coughing up a bit more $ and getting two more valves for the front and not have to deal with the air transfer...

:stupid:

i ran that for almost a year with the swaybar and no shocks, pretty good body roll on quick turns, then i switched to 4 valves in front, so much better, and with no swaybar or shocks, much much better, save and do 4 valves, extra 60-70 bucks.
