I guess.  Talking about best way to compensate for load.  Springs or bags?  Bags would let me adjust due to load as needed.  Springs, unloaded could be a bit much.

OK, bag it is.  Dang coil springs are worthless for weight.  Leaf springs are so much easier.

OK question for them that have done this.  Air Lift got back to me.  They do have a 5 x 8.  Apparently Kia Sorento - go figure.  Do these things rub against the coil spring?  Do they use the coil spring to contain themselves to inflate? 

How gnats ass does it have to be on the measurement?

Your dealing with a big heavy rubber balloon. Can't see that a gnats ass will make a hill of beans difference.   Long as the air bag go's into the spring it should work.  Not like your going to own the Jeep long enough for them to wear out.  LMAO I got your number Jeff.  rofl

If I believe I cannot do something it makes me incapable of doing it. But when I believe that I can, then I acquire the ability to do it , even if I didn't have it at the beginning.

Bag is contained by coil spring.  But not much rubbing, as spring and bag move together. 

fast covered most of the rest. So you should be good.

don't know if it helps but i have used triangle, firestone and air lift bags. i currently use air lift cause when i was looking to add them to this current truck they had the best warranty. i do have to say there mounting hardware was also better built imo. the others are right the bag in the coil is simple and as long as it fits inside the coil you bee good. i doubt you need the largest heaviest bag to do what you looking for either.  i do believe you'll need a better shock to go with added pressure or faster rebound. like faster compression and slower rebound rate.
