about to bag it

It's my first time bagging anything and i have some questions. I have a 92 dakota with the v8 magnum. I hear alot about the slam re-7 bags but i don't know what motors yous have. do i need a different bag because of the weight? And drop spindles. Are they a must have to get the frame on the ground? And is the back of the frame on the ground with the bag over axel set-up? I'd kinda rather do the bags on a rear bar so what's the benefits to that set up?

bag on axle is simple...but compaired to a bag on bar it has a stiffer ride. these trucks lay easily with bag on axle judging you set it up right...measure everything before you weld it.

a 6in bag in the front is typically rated for 2500 lbs of force. they can easy lift a v8 but you are limited on height. most choose the re7's cuz you get more lift with less psi used (lower the psi softer the ride) also slam's are a stiffer material than most bags and that some guys do not run shock in front if they use re7's (still too bouncy for my taste)

depending on what size wheel you run use a 10in notch in rear. you also gunna have to either move the gas take or fuel cell the truck.

make sure the entire truck is level before you cut the rear apart or else the truck will sit sideways (this includes leveling the rear end)

here's some links that will help.
