Man my truck is screwed up. I ran the traditional four link. I placed the bags on the lower link bar. Built a new crossmember and everything. But for some reason, the right side leaks down fast as hell when i drive down the road. I know that i have some leaks cause I used the plastic airline, but I can't hear any thing coming from the right side. It just seems like nothing had gone right with my truck and I want to greenville in my truck, but it can't go in this condition. Plus i gotta redo my exhaust cause I have true duals and the mufflers hang lower than the frame. WTF can I do? !amazed !frustrated

Take a old bottle that of like windex or something. Spray bottle like that. Poor whatever the hell is in it out, and mix about 4 to 1, 4 water to 1 dishsoap. And spray all your connections. If it bubbles up thats where a leak is. Plastic line is perfectly fine. If you have slam bags i hope you didnt overtighten the fittings cause they will leak if you do. You can use teflon tape but loctite 565 is way better to use. Most of all, i hope you didnt use fittings from say, home depot, orachard supply, stores such as those. Use the real fittings like parker and wat not. But you can fix it in a few hours at most a day. Dont get bummed yet. Just spray EVERYTHING and you will find all your leaks. Hope that helped.

^^^^haha
But seriously, I think I have all of the leaks located, just gotta fix em. It sucks not having a shop though. I got all my fittings from FBI, and I heard about the over tightening with the slam's, but I didn't know about doing the fitting though, I just did the bolts. It's just aggravating cause there's these little fuckers around here that are all bolt in and their rolling, and I know they are talking shit. Plus, mine is the only BAGGED dakota aroung here, so I feel like I am kinda setting a standard here. Thanks for the help and support though ya'll.
