    another hydroholics install
    Well here goes another one. This was dropped off yesterday. I plumbed up the pumps and dumps last night then got to work this morning. So far I have the battery rack made, painted and installed. The batteries were supplied by the owner, I guess they are batteries for a freightliner (he works for them). They are a little larger than normal and have all the correct ratings, so they should work perfect. The solenoids are also mounted to the battery rack and hidden underneath. The pump is being mounted with a tilt mount and has already been located. I pulled everything back out to put the Herculiner in. I am using this car to prototype special upper plates and lower forks so I will have the plates and forks water jetted tomorrow. Hopefully the cylinder can go in tomorrow. Derek will be coming over to do the hardlining tomorrow as well. Sorry there aren't a ton of pics, I was working a little faster today and never took a break to snap any.

    I have been looking at the switch boxes in your builds and they are 4 switches most of the time. Are they just lift and dump for each wheel? so you would need to press 2 at the same time to lift the fronts, backs etc? or do you have them wired some other way?

    What you see is all it's going to take. One pump, Three batteries, Two solenoids, One 5-dump manifold. Very simple, compact F/B/S/S setup.

    Usually I wire FBSS, even with the 1-5 setup. The last one I did was wired like that. The car before that (the acura) was a 2-6 setup and wired with 4 switches, FBSS.
    On this car there are actually 5 switches. It is wired differently than normal, but this is the way I like it. You have to hit combos, but with those combos you can control any wheel (up or down) with the 5 switches. Basically a main switch for the main dump (down) and solenoid (up), then the other 4 are the for corners. So Hit the rear switches down and the main up will lift the front by not allowing pressure to build in the rear.

    Got some more done today. We will be offering a completely bolt in setup for the Magnums, Chargers, and 300s. All the plates and lower forks are water cut.

    The optima is the car battery. These platforms (300, charger, magnum) all come with the battery in the spare tire well from the factory. I actually cleaned up some of the wiring on it as well. I extended and tucked them so it would look nicer underneath there when you were looking at the hydraulics.
    As far as a bolt in kit goes... I made one extra set when I had these cut. I didn't want to go overboard on the first set in case it needed any minor changes. Now that I have this bolted in I am ready to sell them as a kit. I haven't determined a price yet, but if you are interested send me a PM. Also, I appreciate you spreading the word on them on other forums.

    I own a magnum and this build looks interesting.

    From the pics it looks like you're replacing the shocks in the rear and the struts in the front minus the spring. I'm assuming (and hoping) the spring in the rear stays but would really like to know the route you are taking.

    If this kit can preserve the ride quality of what I have now (eibach springs and peders dampers) I would definately take this route over airride.

    Thanks for any responses.
