    It doesn’t look like it’s blown out. Almost looks like the bottom part had a rubber boot on it and it got pushed to the bottom. I don’t know. I have to find a picture of what it should look like.

    I don't give a darn about your brakes or suspension when there are real issues at hand, like you ragging on your boss's Cubs sticker. Dudes are winking at you because you look gay, not because of her sticker. Shape up or ship out, mister! I mean, buy your own truck, buddy! I mean, oh jeez..... You're married, stupid!!! Lol

    Hahaha. Point taken. I plan on tinting the windows pretty dark, maybe that’s my compromise.

    From what I can gather, if the bags don’t inflate, they tear and this is probably to the extreme. I wonder why I never got an idiot light for the suspension. Do I even have one? Damn, now I gotta test compressor and power to it. This might get expensive. Or I just drop it sooner than I wanted and ditch the air ride altogether.

    Definitely a blown air bladder. The fuse(s) for the air system are probably blown so the whole system is just off- no activity, no warning lights, etc. The process usually starts with an air bladder leaking which results in the compressor running more than it should, then the leak gets bad enough that the compressor is running so much that it overheats or seizes. The compressor fuse blows and people usually just remove the other fuses for the system so it's totally disabled. The AutoRide part of the shock still functions as normal since it's a separate system and part of the StabiliTrak.

    As for the Cubs heart- maybe have your own, more manly version made up (or another team?) and have that on the driver's side and the girly Cubs one on the passenger side. If I saw that, I'd just think "his team/her team/house divided" (if opposing teams).

    Anyone have any experience with this company? I might pull the trigger on this.

    In the meantime, I put my new axle, hangers, springs and hardware on the trailer.

    Then the next issue arose. PO used 2 different springs so now my hanger spacing is wrong. Front springs were shorter than the rear. My shackle angles are wrong and spring eyelets will hit frame before they even start to compress. FML!! Gotta cut off hangers, space differently and put on 1-1/2” longer hangers. Raining today though.
