    Hydroholics has a very good reputation on LIL.* Personally, I've ordered from them and was very pleased with their service.* I would recommend them, and do business again.

    Thanks for all the responses. Does anyone have pics of setups with their accumulators? Looking for ideas.

    * Even if they're upside down the 300psi behind the bladder will still push the oil out of them.

    x2, it doesn't matter up or down or sideways, once the cylinders are down and the pressure is out of the accums. All the oil in the system doesn't go back into the tank.

    just where ever you can fit a T in and they accumes fit then do that, you dont have a ton of options, it just depends on how your pumps are already plumbed.

    I have some of those too. But instead of 2-3 licks, those will take like 1 lick of the switch before it lifts.

    with mine i notice you can lower the car and when the suspension is bottomed out you can continue to hold the switch down and you can hear the pressure release out of the accumies.* So just lower it till the car stops and there will still be oil in the accumies, if you hold it down it pushes the oil out of em.

    But me personally i put mine pointing up and i release all the pressure out of them because i dont drive my car much and having that pressure on them ALL the time probably aint good.* Even if theyre upside down the 300psi behind the bladder will still push the oil out of them.

    That's true. I guess I should have just said don't dump it all the way. It's a little easier to bleed with them upside down though. Otherwise, you have to shake all that trapped air back out.

    This was my rear pump, it has blocker dumps so you can lock it up and 3 wheel. And slowdowns to shut the flow off to the accums all together.

    I would have used the big lever type too, but I had 8 of these slowdowns . So went with them. And they were stainless. They were more for tightening up the ride up cause the accums on there would have a good little flow bounce.

    But then I had changed them out with the CCE ones, and it road even better.

    Here's a "do" suggestion:

    If you mount them upside down so that the fitting is on top, when you dump the car, gravity will hold oil in the accumulator.* When you go to lift the car, it will lift a little quicker.

    If you mount them fitting side down, they'll drain more completely, and have to refill before it lifts.*

    That 1 extra flick of the switch is the difference between people complaining about "slow response" and happy driving.
    no shit...first tap is to fill the acc(s) then after that everylift is a lift...thats all for me...


    and i 3 occasionally with no problesm...yet...!!!

    i always see the accumulators plugged next to the pumps and to be true i did so too on my rear pumps but its better to put em next to the cylinders for a better work

    I had them T'ed off the cylinders and hated it. They would shake loose from movement, bang into shit, and in my case a '94 Fleetwood has a computer (CCM) right where the left cylinder comes through the trunk floor, and the accumulator banged into the CCM, shorting it out, putting a huge dent in the metal case, and tore through at least 4 wires in the harness. I have since made all the necessary repairs and plumbed them off the pumps. Just my $0.02.

    *there never is a need for acumulators up front in any ride, just a waste of space/money. Deadhead is shutoffs on my setup, you can see the bombs just underneath.
