HELP... syspension geometry... Front air bag system deseign. what do you run?

Hey guys, Im always a little scared to post stuff like this.... Old hamber flash backs.... This is the set up Ive come up with to do hidden bags in the front of the 26 to enable me to run bags on all four corners. Please feel free to correct me on geometry... or tell me the correct geometry for this. OR if you have done it do you have pics and measurements.

Thank you guys. Sorry for the spelling on the pic....lol...

To me it looks like your Shockabsorber is going to be doing little to no dampening. Also it looks like you are planning on running a double convoluted airspring. If it were me, I would suggest ditching the divorced bag and shock combo and look at going to a modular piece where the Shock and bag are on piece like a coil over. Also if you are going to keep it close to a 1:1 motion ratio, you need to look a rolling sleeve type airspring and ditch the double convoluted. The Rolling sleeve is going to have more stroke and have a more linear spring rate.
