Air bags

Alright here is the newest headache. I have a fresh Dana 60 coming from DTS and I want to put air bags in my rear coil springs to help with the hook. I just ordered a set from jegs but they are too big for my coil springs. The tech guys and I have yet to come up with anything that goes back to 64 and will fit. I know someone else out there is running a set and I would really appreciate any help you guys can give me. Thanks.

Dave,
Which # did Jeg's advise you to use?
022-60713 are listed for '58-'64 chev full size. Is that the # they sent you?

And Dave, I am currently using this kit (#60713). There is also kit #60736 (I assume Jeg's # would be 022-60736). I'm using this kit also in another Impala. The two kits both have bags the same diameter. The #60713 bags are shorter with thicker pads for each end, and the #60736 has longer bags with thinner pads.
If you need more help, PM me and maybe we can get together and I'll show them to you. I live out north of town on 14th street.

Yes Sir that sounds like a deal. It looks like you have quite a few awesome chevys in the stable. I should have some free time this weekend. Let me know whats going on, are you planning on going to the wahoo swap meet?
