How are the airbags attached to the axle? A bracket that is welded to the axle that extends down and back? Like a shelf off the back of the axle?

yes exactly, i am a little concerned about it putting added stress on the poly bushings in the links because they are mounted behind the axle so they are always trying to rotated pinion up but i figured we will see how long the poly bushings last, it will prob be fine.

The truck looks great. How well does the offset wishbone upper link control the axle? I was really wanting to do a airbag wishbone 4 link on the rear of my 97 with the stock tank. I am lifted about 8"
