i curently have the drag bags inside of 1/2'' drop pedders springs.while they work great at the dragstrip i notice that they decrease handleing capabilities of the car for street driving if you leave them inflated.even at low psi.the rear end seems bouncy at high speeds.i have been just leaving them deflated for the street and inflating them for dragstrip only.ive been considering just taking them out alltogether and using the drag springs i have for when i go to the drag strip

What PSI are you running? Did you "Y" the bags together? One inlet for two bags.

I do not have a drop.(the road suck around here) I used one line for each bag. I can monitor the bags seperatly. This also helps in the handeling department. Allows the air to stay in that bag. Not transferr to the other under hard cornering. I keep mine set at 14psi for the street. I increase to 18-20psi when I beat on the car. I still need to test a little when I go to the drag strip next weekend.

i was running as little as 5lbs. in them,and they are ''y'' ed together,they do work great at the dragstrip and im happy with the performance there,but it seems that the fact that they keep the springs from compressing that it takes away from what the irs was dessigned to do when it comes to handleing i believe that the springs need to be able to compress to work.i have been running them deflated for about 4 months and will be taking them out altogether when i get my new bump stops(had to order new ones since you have to cut the rubber for the install)i think that the raising of the rearend when you inflate them takes away some of the handleing capabilities as well.i really dont need them anyways,i get 0 wheelhop on the street thanks to all the suspension mods i have done,i do have a set of drag springs with the dragbags in them that i will be using for drag strip only.
