Yes, the air bags are going to run on top of the links. Yes, it will be very tight on the PS. It will cause a lot of stress to both the frame, heims, and the links. So all those are being beefed like crazy with the cage being welded into the frame to further strengthen the jeep. The 1.25" Heim's will be the weak link if anything does break.

The benefit is the amount of control and flex I will have to drop the suspension so the wheels are grabbing while keeping the bags in the safest spot I can put them. Also the fact that by having the bags on the links I can extend the axles out or in easily by switching out the links with ones of different lengths if I want to at a later time instead of redesigning the entire suspension. They have a internal leveling sensor and have been out for over 10 years with lots of testing and abuse.
