    Joe, I'm sorry you've had bad luck with this kit but again, this kit is not designed for racing or to be a substitute for hydraulic bump stops.

    The kit is called a long travel air bag kit because it doesn't limit droop travel like other airbag kits. If you read our product description at the top again, you will see that this is listed clearly.

    You can't get upset at a product for not doing something it wasn't designed to do.




    This. Thank you. :waytogo:

    I have to agree with anyjoe on this one. The implication given in the title was why I opened this thread. But this is not a long travel anything.
    Thank you for clearing up the intended purpose of this product and I do agree with you on the bump stop statement for sure. As we are talking about vendor products that DO work in this type of application. (higher speed off roading and toeing) One might consider this package.

    No sacrifice in wheel movement at all. Increased toeing ability and it will all but eliminate the dreaded wheel hop.
    Round that out with a set of Light racing Bumps and your ready..

    I disagree (see above) you can keep all factory movement and add to performance..

    Im sorry but SDHQ has a long travel air bag kit that is exactly what they say it is. And again for clairifacation I NEVER WANTED TO USE THEM AS BUMP STOPS!!!! Since you did not seem to see that on the last post.

    If you have $1,900 to spend on an airbag kit, then yes, the SDHQ kit is definitely the way to go.

    However, many of the calls I get on this kit are from people that have looked at the SDHQ kit but simply can't justify that much money to be able to haul a camper or trailer to the campsite.

    I never said that this is the ultimate best ever magic airbag kit of all time, I simply stated that is our favorite solution to the problem of adding a little load capacity and not limiting droop travel.

    Is this kit for everyone? No. But for those that want to find a balance between load capacity and off-road performance, this is a great option.

    There is a system that is much better for this and comes much closer to to the advertised claim of an off road airbag "longtravel system"...

    Here it is

    Did you read my post? The factory suspension has limitations. If you are looking to change the suspension then the SDHQ kit is better.

    ---------- Post added at 12:38 PM ---------- Previous post was at 12:35 PM ----------

    Wiz, I said increasing hauling/towing ability and increasing off road ability. Other than adding a removable system, like SDHQ's, what is out there. SDHQ is adding a towing system that cannot be used off-road. What kind of system is there, that is permanent, that increases towing and off-road performance?

    I'm not sure I under stand what your saying my friend.. The SDHQ system is totally designed for off road use and doesn't need to be removed. It actually helps performance off road because it will hinder wheel hop. Then when you need to tow you air up the bags and pull your trailer. The only thing ever being removed is "air" Click the link and read brother..

    I'm pretty sure that has to be removed for hard core offloading. Maybe I misunderstood. If so, I stand corrected.

    This is a horrendous thread jack. Also, that SDHQ setup would be torn off in no time, the hangers are what looks to be at least 3-4" below the hitch.
