Four-Link Airbag Suspension Made Easy

Just about every sport truck enthusiast knows the only way to lay frame is with an airbag suspension. However, to actually get the vehicle low enough to sit on the ground, some serious engineering needs to take place, especially in the rear. AIM Industries, of Mesa, Arizona, has taken the guesswork out of making your late-model Chevy a ground-pounder with its latest four-link airbag system. Up front, the stock coil springs are replaced with AIM's trick Air Wave airbag/shock combo. Out back, the rear suspension in completely, re-engineered, using a trick four-link setup. The crowning touch of the AIM system is an engine-mounted air compressor to keep the system pressurized.
For this install, we wanted to use a set of fast 'bags, a four-link rear, and an engine-driven compressor. Forever changing the look of the truck, we wanted the install to be completed by a professional installer, and after a quick call to The Custom Truck Shop in San Dimas, California, the truck was on its way from a factory Silverado to a 'bagged Bow Tie custom. Read along as we take you through the install.
