    Default Question about drop shackles and air bags..

    I have a friend of mine that wants to sell me 2'' rear drop shackles for my 2004 1500..

    I already have Airaid airbags on the rear end to help level out the truck when I tow (Maybe once in a couple months).. and really want to keep them on there..
    Can you have the drop shackles, and the air bags? I know it kind of defeats the purpose of the drop shackles.. but I figured when there's no air in the air bags it wouldn't matter much..

    I think you'll have to rework your air bag mounts so you dont flatten the bags and pinch them.
    But it's possible to do. You really never want to run the bags totally empty, this allows them to get wrinkles that can get pinched, keep just enough air so the bags stay puffed out some.

    What do you mean by "rework the airbag mounts"? Change the places where they are at on the spring??
    I always keep around 10 psi in them.. and plan to continue to do so.

    I have Air Lift rear air bags,along with a 2in rear Shackle drop......No problems at all with the bags,and I also keep a min of 10-psi in the bags.
