As some of you know I make a video about everything to go on my channel. Recently finished up the drag bag install and made this quick video if any of you were interested.

I was thinking of doing this. You think this with a new rear sway bar from hawks third gen give me better traction?

drag bags dont give you better traction. they band aid wheel hop. bags can actually cause traction to be worse due to the fact that the weight will not transfer properly to plant the rear of the car.

get a drag race style swaybar that can be preloaded. drag springs and shocks would be a plus too. drag radials will help the most for traction

There's easier ways to do this. I've done it this way but on my car I ran the Mazda MPV bags sideways. They're cheaper and you don't need to cut the bump stops so if you wanted to go another route you don't have your bump stops hacked up. Soap and water makes a good lubricant for forcing the bags into the springs. I also ran the two separate air lines and valves and mounted them in the plastic covering just under the rear bumper. There's a little "trap door" that you can hinge down to get everything hooked up.
