Cool Center Point install

There's the Airbag system from LCI I installed before I hit the road it works great it takes the jolt out from the 17.5 H tires next I think I'll put Joy Rider shocks on

I take it you did it yourself, was it a big job?

Yes it was a little. Slow on the first side but the other side took three hours the only change I made was I ran a single air line and gauge for each side I talked with the guy that designed it and he said that's the only way to do it I'm still working with the pressures but for now it looks like 75 in the right side and 85 in the left heavy side I got the kit from Tweetys for $1250.00 delivered

Are those the 7K axles? I have an issue with my 8K springs rubbing on the Equaflex spring shackles, so I was trying to picture how they would do on that setup.

I like the idea of two separate lines, because, as you say, the two sides of the trailer are not going to weigh the same. Good job!

Can you tell if it raised/lowered the RW? I would certainly like to do that install also, I just can't spring the $$ for to IS, unless I win the lottery.

No I have 8K springs on 8K axles. But the second leaf is longer than the 7K, so it hits the Equaflex spring shackle.

It will still hit you need to use longer bolts and have some spacers made its no big deal

No it's at about the same height the unit sits lower but you use the longer bolt pattern in the shackles
