This is my second dealing with them and my second complaint so for anyone that is thinking for going with them for parts i would think twice....

I got those A-arms and they didnt fit right the sway bar ends wouldnt go back in right there is but there in crooked(i even bought new ends)
and the A-arm is not made correctly we had to grind and weld to even make my bag fit in it...and of course since we did that they aint gonna take em back and to top it off they didnt make a difference:(

Ive heard of there shitty products, I think they sell 2 types of arms right? One for coils and one for bags? Which ones did u get. When i bought mine from DJM they are made to be used with a coil setup so i had to grind down some tabs that were on the surface of the control arms so the bag would sit flat. Now as far as the swaybar i had the same issue, i just removed the swaybar completely cuz it doesnt allow the control arms full movement and it actually does not allow u to lay out. It just gets in the way. With my setup i can layout my front crossmember. How far are u from laying out? Is there anything that is hitting? The tires on the fenders? Did u removed the cat, it does bottom out before the crossmember so i removed mine.

i got the ones for the coils they were cheaper and we cut off the tabs like u did...and im 2inches from layin out the cross member and the converter isnt hittin yet..but when i does were gonna take it out...but we didnt have to yet and all my wheel wells are cut out tires arent hittin anything...

ok now to the sway bar that doesnt hurt ur control in coners cuz its all mountians and sharp corners around here... and member i drive mine to shows its not trailered

Well i really havent driven mine that much, most of the time it been in the shop. We u have driven it, i really cant notice the antisway bar is gone and the anti sway bar really doesnt bother me here cuz we dont have any sharp corners or anything. Do you have a FB or a FBSS setup? If u have a FB setup you are going to feel the truck lean more cuz when cornering pressure is going to be applied to one of the bags which releases the air into the opposite bag causing there to be more body roll. If you have the bags setup independent it should be ok.

I lowered my 99 ram with chasis tech products from AIM and had absolutely no problems. The salesman was even nice and not to mention knowledgable. I guess its hit and miss.

Yeah sometimes with AIM it is hit or miss. Ive heard of lot of unsatisfied customers thou. They are coming out with this cool 7" touch screen that controls ur valves. I want it. Anybody want to be the guinea pig and try it out first? Ghetto girl? lol

What exactly are you referring to when you say "Do you have a FB or a FBSS setup?", are you talking about the valve setup? Each bag controlled by itsown valve?

ram2nv i would love to be the guinea pig But....sorry its from chassis tech so i am not buyin it...im done with them lol

sapper85 FB means front back only system, 4 valves and FBSS means front back side to side 8 valves which is what i have a fill and a dump valve for each bag

so essentially each bag is controlled by its own valve. OK. thats the setup the guy at showcase custom said he recommended going with for the exact reasons ram2nv said, body roll and all that. I was close in my thinking:) just wasnt to sure bout the abbreviations lol.
