    If youre bagging it, get yourself the Gambino notch, i did! Alex is great to deal with and is always helpful.. half the bagged chevies on here are running something from Gambinos! good luck, CJ

    What I want to do is C-notch the frame, use 2.5" dropped leaf springs, 2" blocks,
    and the frame to spring or rear end to frame bags! I don't have the money of the equipment to install a Gambino or Jimenez Bros. 2 or 4 link setup. I want it to sit 4" to 6" off the ground when deflated, i'm not interested in a total slam!

    Then you should reconsider the bagging part because it WILL NOT ride well with that combo. You will put alot of work in for very little benifit. You can easily drive it low with a better ride with springs and blocks. If you must have bags do the whole kit once so you dont end up doing it twice!! Im bagging my 54 too and like others have said GAMBINO is the only way to go if you choose the bag route!

    you can achieve that with a gambno notch , a set of supper slide springs & blocks , over the axle brackets & bags and it will set you back about 800.00 bucks . you can use a shrater valve or pony up for the air management ether way i can dial you in call us

    Doin the bag on spring is wrong. You will regret it. Wish I had a pic, but a friend did it this way. Broke the leaf spring. They are not made for that. Rethink it. And just because you get a notch Gambino, or otherwise, doesn NOT mean you have to do a full slam on it! You can adjust it how you see fit. Use only half the notch or somehting like that. Hope that makes sense to you!

    Oh, and when considering a 2-link, for god's sake don't buy one made from square or rectangular tubing! Some builders think that they are exempt from the laws of physics and materials science. Don't buy into it.

    Search for "truck arms" or "nascar arms". There are numerous threads that will explain this in full detail.
