You got a trans fund set aside? ( <-------------that'* my question)
i want to say thing again and again and again when i blew the trans one was from a neutral drop and the other was from doing a massive burnout
so do we know for sure this is what caused it? NO! could it affect were and tear? YES i have done research on this topic

by the way i bagged a 94 bonne

i only seen wear on a C-V joint when i had it installed what is the definition of Constant Velocity Joint they are designed for extreme angles
look at jacked up 4x4'* with 44inch boggers i bet you most use a CV joint driveshaft along with turning the pinion angle up a bit

also what about the GXP thats bagged have problems too? as far as i know he hasnt and its been installed for almost a year maybe?

Viair Makes some sick compressors i had a 550c
it depends what PSI you wanna run at.. 150psi is safe 200psi it hardcore
the more psi the faster your system will be

your stock struts will do this will help you maintain your alignment just disconnect the ELC

alot of people have disputed the affects of air ride and what not with no really knowledge of how the system works

if you want info Pm me and go from there

also i would APPRECIATE if you guys woudnt mislead anybody in the wrong direction
because lack of knowledge
dont jump to conclusions

We're not jumping to conclusions. We're quite familiar with thrust angles and bad load angles on the tripod. We warned you about it, and you wouldn't listen, so you blew another trans right after the first one.

Plenty of stock transmissions have withstood what you describe plenty of times. It sounds like you very well may have weakened the linkage.

The main thing is the engineering. If you can visualize what it'* doing at both ends of the shaft, you can see that it'* not good for longevity.

Thank You....

You can only go up so far before you put an immense amount of pressure on the Diff/output shaft..

When you knock the pinions out of the Diff, you have put an incredible amount of pressure on the drive line...

Gameover, whether you want to believe it or not, you fooked your trans. The bags were a big factor in both failures.

Remember he had 20'* on his car. Combine that with a lowered setup from the air bags and it will put a lot of strain on the axles.

Plus, how does the angle of the CV/axles affect how the trans gets destroyed? If anything, only the axles would get destroyed. That'* what you see commonly in the W-body community when people lower. It doesn't take out a trans, just the axles. What happened to Gameover was probably the result of the huge heavy 20" wheels.

I'm just speculating, but I think many of you are taking this topic way too seriously. How many people have used airbags on here? NOT MANY

Let other people give it a shot before scaring them away. Air bags have proven to be a good suspension option for many cars.
