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

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 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.
