wow none of that really made sence what i was trying to say is depending on how your setup is it could change how you dump but i guess 3/8 reducersto a shotr leighnth of line


or use smaller valves but need to consider if they will handle the pressure to dump cuz your lift valve can over power your dump valve and it will lock up

exactly. just make sure they are rated for the pressure you plan to run.

I bought 1/2" drops, and have the frons reduced to 1/8" and the backs to 1/4"..

I'm quicker on the switches now though, I may make the fronts 1/4 and the backs 3/8 now..

...humm i think i would be happier with 1/2 all the way around....i need to put together a set up that will hold plenty of PSI....any one know


Just go with a reputable company on the valves such as Parker,Herion,or SMC.
Go for it! Just make sure you get what you want the first time around.I am saying this because I have been there.I spent $2500.00 3 years ago on Air-Ride Technoligies think'n it was going to be fast!Little did I know then.Sold all of that for like $600 and some new stereo equipment.I still took a loss. :angry:

Remember if it is going to be to FAST you can always slow it down!If you go to slow you'll never get it to be FAST!

;) :cool:

1/2 valves are a good all round valve. Lift fast drop fast, just get good quality valves and you shouldnt have any problems. I'm using multiple sizes of valves cause i just happen to have all my old valves so why not use them. I'm using everything from 3/8-1/2-3/4 valves 3/4" valves work great for dumping the back

i have 1/2" fill and 3/8 dumps on the front of my lincoln. i have to tap it down if i dont want to slam it really hard. if you have good switches with extensions it makes it alot easier.
