actually you can hop with air ride but in order to do that you have to run compressed nitrogen, run dual port bags and run bigger lines

brian, I signed up for your board. and I know you can do it without the no2.. just get a big enough compressor and turn the pressure all the way up.. and it will hop. we got a guy down the street here off of sherman ave. that can do it with his cavalier..

AIM is the APC of air ride. i wouldnt buy shit from them. id like togo EAI or even The Hack Shack custom jobbie but since custom setups are alot of $$ i may just go with a bolt in...just need to find one thats bolt in thats good.

AIM is about equal to APC = CRAP ....sorry....just my opinion :-Y

What type of airs are you looking into? Bags or Cyls?
What do you want to do with it? (what are your goals?)

And you can still hop WITHOUT a tank of Nitrogen :cool: (Not NO2 by the way ;-) )

id like to run actual bags. are the bags possible to do or the cylinders the only ones that will work. personally i dont wanna do cylinders if i dont have to because i hear they have a tendency to lock up. as far as what i wanna do, id like to just raise the car up and down but i am gonna add side to side later on.

finally someone agrees with me that AIM is LAME!! hehe

my girlfriends grandfather has hem on his el camino, the bags and i don´t see how you can hop with them. I mean they take a bit to fill up. So I wouldn´t think the bags can do that.

nahh he got it put on for the looks. Get this a 68 year old man with chrome 18´s and an air ride setup to lower it when he parks it and some dark tint to go with it. He is crazy with his cars. It´s not for towin at all. straight looks. And I am 100% serious.

yeah its possible. From looking through my summit racing magazines there seems to be alot of air ride kits available to trucks and the like for cheap that are made for towing.

yeah ford puts em on the expedition and excursions for towing and i think you get them them special ain the f series truck. They tend to take a crap though, i have herd. And i was also told jumpimng with bags is possible. They have quick release valves and big compressors. So i was wrong.

Hopping bags can handle up to 300 PSI and usually have Dual or Quad 3/4"-1" ports.
Also a lot of those setups have engine driven comps with about 10 CFM being pumped out...large orfice solenoid valves are always used for hopping....usually the ones built into machined manifolds.
