Anti-Dive on MII front suspension with Air Bags

How do I set up an MII front suspension which I want to equip with
Air Bags. From what I've seen it cannot be done by angling the top
spring towers that 4 degrees. The air bags will not tolerate it, or will
they? The project has come to a halt till I figure this out.

Thanks in advance

Carl

You can use a Shockwave type bag to do it, or you can set the bag mount at 90 degrees, while angling the upper arm 4 degrees as normal.

Maybe you could cut a rectangular portion out of the front a-arm slot and weld in a raised cup with the slot in it again. Of course the whole upper mount would need to be lowered half of what ever amount (1/2"?) you raised the one slot to adjust for it.
