Firestone airbag problems installing

When I put the bags on the long bolt is in the way of the locating pin, so you can not put the bags on centered. Is this an issue? The instructions are very poor, there are 2 holes for mounting the bag on the lower bracket but it doesn't say left or right hole to use....

What a pita. Anyone else run into this and what was your remedy?

Which kit do you have?

And which long bolt and locating pin are you referring to?

Here is a list of installation instructions for the Firestone Ride Rite kits: http://www.firestoneip.com/riderite/...onManuals.aspx

I got it in, but they really need to work on their instructions.

I agree!!!
I remember trying to figure my airbags out when I got them with the crappy instruction sheet they put in the box.
