I need to hit the TLC website... I looked at your install and the instructions I got Friday have the bags/brackets mounted opposite of army of one. It looks like a design change to me. All I know I'm a tad confused at this point with these tiny pics and obscure (to me) instructions.

Good write up, thanks for sharing and including all the photos. Will be interested to hear how it performs for you.

It is performing great, been literally flawless since about last november. I had one issue with the bags not staying put but the re-design fixed it. Since then its been perfect, and I use the CRAP out of it. I have 20k miles on my TLC system and its awesome.

Maybe this has been answered somewhere before, but I can't find anything - when the Jounce bumpers are removed, do the collapsed TLC airbags act as the new overload protection for the rear suspension? If I'm loaded up without pressure in the airbags (assume I have a leak), what stops the suspension from going beyond the design limit dictated by the OEM jounce bumpers? Are these bags set up to take the potential load from bottoming out due to hitting a large hole or bump? Can the springs be compressed further with TLC installed than the jounce bumpers would allow?
