    Gang,
    Got the Caddy in the weeds now. However, since I am a perfectionist, I have a question for you air riding Caddy owners.

    I am running Dominator 2600 on all 4 corner. The front is a little to close to the frame (as it enters the frame opening for the original springs). When the bag is aired up, the bag's outside diameter is 8-8.12" and it's touching the frame.

    QUESTION. What size and manufacturer of bags are you running up front? Someone said the RE5's are a smaller diameter, but has anyone used them?

    Thanks in advance!!!!
     
  2. I run the Slam Specialities RE7 with no clearance problems , they seem to maintain the 7" diameter inflated :)

    Is the bag centered in the spring pocket? I always offset the upper cups to get the bag centered in the pocket. I've used the Firestone 224C 2600LB bag, which is 8" in diameter, without having to cut on the frame. It may just be that the bags are not centered?
