Yes I got everything , I have run these systems before, last time was on my supercharged XRunner that I had c- notched. Last time though I had the analog set up and had to run the airlines into the cab and put the gauge in the a pillar and I mounted the switches another place. The Airlift one is the way to go. You just put in what pressure you want and it goes right to it and stops, plus you get 3 presets. I got mine at SD truck springs. They were the cheapest. Let me know what measurements you get as well. I measured inside and then just did it by eye on the out side measuring from spring seat to spring seat.

I don't know anything about lowering springs but your statement about thin ones in front and thick ones in back kind of rang a bell with me. Since the engine is up front, shouldn't the thicker springs go up front to carry the weight?

They were also marked front and back as well, but no the guy from black ops sent me a pic to be sure and it was indeed front thin back thick, I sent him pics of my springs as well and he verified they were in the correct place.

For the guys that say I have them in wrong here is the quote on the Blackops page, plus as I said above these were actually marked front and rear, and we even measured the coils to make sure we had it right.......Note:

Please notice install position F & R on the 3rd picture here!! The taller fatter coil belongs in the rear of the truck and the shorter skinnier coil goes in the front.

Is it just me or are urs less coils? I count 9 levels of coils on mine that I just took a picture of now. (All rusted of course gotta love the crappy road magnet finish)

Maybe they sent you extreme drops in the rear ? Or maybe it's the way your springs are oriented which seems to be different then mine. Can't tell.

Mine actually does have that little coil at the bottom , but it's collapsed all the way down, so that is starting to make sense now. Thank you for all of your help by the way, I was actually trying to google pics of the rear springs installed when you posted this. Did you get any measurements on yours? I'm really curious of your interior height.

I didn't have a chance but tomorrow after work I'll get you a measurement from the interior height of the compressed spring under the full weight of the vehicle. That's what you are looking for right?

Re: Road Magnet Mids, and Bilstein Shocks, Bottoming out, help!

Yes sir, I want to make sure there is a difference for one thing, and also make sure that the air bags I ordered are going to be tall enough. Mine is a little under 8 inches right now, but it has a 1 inch spacer in it now, so I ordered the 9.75" height. I ran out there with a flash light to show you that the orientation was the same, but you can definitely tell my bottom coil is way more compressed than yours. I think they might have sent me the extreme rears as well. His first fix for this was to get the aggressive fronts to lower the front more, but I really don't want to have to do the front all over again, and I don't want it that low either.

I feel like he may have extreme rear springs.

That's exactly what I think as well, I think they just go them mixed up and put the wrong back spring in the box. Does anyone have a pic of the Extreme rears installed to compare?

Did you happen to get around to taking those measurements? Just let me know, I am really curious. Thanks
