I'm installing the Ride Ride 2304 air bags onto my 4WD Tacoma. The instructions could be improved by showing a side view of the alignment of the bags relative to the U-bolts and the bumper stops, but I think I've got that figured out.
My main problem is that after drilling holes through the frame to attach the top mount, I can't figure out how to get the nuts into the frame and aligned with the bolts because I can't easily access the inside of the frame to position the bolt because of metal blocks on both ends.
There's one small hole that I should be able to get one nut through, but the extension on the nut then blocks me from getting the second nut through. I think my only hope is to drop the nut on the extension into the frame and then get my fingers into the hole and try and snag it and line it up.
Any ideas from those of you who have installed these? The 2nd generation Ride Rites look like a breeze to install because they use existing holes in the frame. Not so, the 1st gen.
P.S. This is the first time I've attached photos and it appears I should have kept them larger. Let me know if you need me to resend a larger version.
