Smile Discovered Air Bags on Rear 1997 GB Pursuit

Crawled under my 1997 GBM with F-53 chassis this morning to check the sway bar bushings. Found out that the bushings were Ok, but what a surprise when I found that it had air bags installed on the rear. I was going to make a Trac Bar (Pan Hard Bar), but am not so sure now until I hook up my toad put some air in the bags and see how she tows and rides. I still might make the Track Bar come spring. I noticed the differential is solid in the front. (no bolts) the only bolts are on the back of the differential. I doubt if that will make much difference to install a trac bar. The front has a steer safe. We are getting ready to take about a 2000 mile trip in a few days, so that will tell me if I need anything more as far as suspension on my F-53 Chassis. BTW I was also checking the sway bars to see if they had a second set of holes for the CHF (cheap handling fix) Mine do not have the second holes in them.

Kind of like finding new toys in the closet that you bought and did not know they were there.
