    Default FB, FBSS, or Individual corner?

    Just purchased a (2) 5 gallon tank, 1/2" fast bag, 2 switch, FB setup from Erika at CCE. I upgraded to (2) Viair 480 compressors, and SS-7 bags. All for my 64 impala. I've learned that this setup has 1 line to the front bags, that splits to each bag, and the same for the rear. Seems to me that if I run into the issue of the car sagging on 1 side because of weight, I will have no way to correct it. In addition to that, running 1 line cuts the fill speed to the bags essentially in half. Actually, I can think of a whole host of issues I might have by depending on just 1 line for the front, or rear. Looking for thoughts on this, or would you go with more valves to run each bag independently. I really only need front and back, but I'm ok with going to 4 switches instead of 2. Would anybody recommend going FBSS, or would controlling each corner be a better option? Last question, is it really necessary to monitor bag pressures? I really don't want another gage mounted on my dash.

    I don't monitor my bag pressure, but have a gauge on tank-that's a must have. Best to have 8 valves or 6

    I'm only getting 4 valves with what I ordered. I think I should go with 8. I prefer 4 switches at most, but I guess six would be ok. Sounds like that would be a good idea with the way you're set up

    Anytime. Best to run 8 valves. And maybe latter go e.d.c. . I wouldn't do fbss, because with 8 valves, it's like having 4 pumps. Best to do just each corner.

    Triples are for light weight. They'll bow out the side. Bags on the forward link bars should get you to tip up.

    Skzanoma Why did you choose to run the front corners individually vs the back?

    Let me answer my own question... To run the separate lines to each front bag... Might as well use your other two switches for something... Right?

    Engine weight. Didn't want to round a corner and have the air shift to one side. Plus its an S10, which has Chevy lean to drivers side front. Individual control lets me even it out.

    You could wire the front to lift on two switch, and have individual dumps, if wired right, like two pumps and 4 dumps. Same with back, IF YOU WANT f.b and 4 dump cornes. Just a thought.

    Default FB, FBSS, or Individual corner?

    Right now my thoughts are 4 switches controlling each individual corner. But, on the other hand, instead of hitting two switches to raise or lower the front or back, it might be nice to wire switch 1 front, and switch 2, rear. I'm still undecided what I would do with the other two switches though, whether they should control the front individually or the rear individually. If I was even to wire it that way at all
