Just thought I would let everyone know my rear air shock install for the Roadmaster was a GREAT SUCCESS.

I would also like to add that the top bolts are not as bad as everyone makes them out to be!

I am now riding around with the ass end in the air LOL. 80psi

Since I installed the air shocks I noticed the right side sits lower than the left... I know its not the shocks because they are filled together. Maybe the springs are messed up?

Spin the left spring around. Also check to make sure it is seated.

The drivers side? I think that might be it.. it did make a noise when I removed the shock from the passenger side.

Is there a specific way the rear springs go in the car on the bottom perches, as in a notch in the perch that the pigtail fits into, or do the pigtails face a specific way? I'm going to be messing with mine tomorrow, the noise drives me crazy.

I think the newer cars are easier than my '74 was, apparently there's room to get a while 1/4 drive socket wrench up above on the 91 and up cars, but I had to go buy ratcheting box end wrenches just to get up above the upper shock mount, and even then it wouldn't fit all the way on!

HAHA that guy's insane! That car was pretty high in the back. I actually saw an old school charger with the ass up just like that the other day.

This is my 1111th post.
