Been watching your progress, looking great!

POPS
Yea, it can be a pita for sure going through a divorce, they always want money from every little thing you have available...
Thanks, I'm trying to make more garage time!
Good to see that 440 in there, it looks at home in the engine bay!

Default Progress

Got started on the front air bags today.
Don't really know anything about a air bag system
but this is what I came up with. I think it should work.

If anyone sees anything that might give me trouble.
please sound off.

It does go up and down without any binding so....
Need to get a panhard bar on it.

Thanks,
POPS

Default Panhard bar

Can any one shine a light on my dimness?
Does it make any difference which frame rail you mount
Your panhard bracket off of?

I'm trying to get my front panhard figured out and I haven't
Got a clue which rail to mount to. Does it matter?

Thank,
POPS

Default Panhard bar

Any help would be appreciated.
From the searches I've done it looks like
most folks are mounting on the driver side.

Does it make any difference?

Thanks,
POPS

Generally mounted to the frame on the driver's side.

Really makes no difference which side of the frame it mounts to - it's location is more likely to be dictated by the need to clear steering linkage and the ability to miss everything else during full suspension travel.

Thanks Bob,

I think I may be over thinking my thinking.
I'm just going to get it on there and see how it handles.
Thanks for the reply.

POPS, I believe zzrodder is correct. You can go either way.

Zzrodder,

Room is at a premium. I wish I had given myself another 2" in front of the radiator.
Thanks for the reply.

Bob,
Thanks I'll see which side offers the least resistance and go for it.
My biggest problem is getting down there to see it with my new stiff knee.

Thanks,
POPS
