I think your talking about dog legging. You can use any kind really, just as long as it's a one way flow valve (like them SMC's and Parkers). I say go SMC or Parker.

You can 3 wheel on cylinders as long as they have top and bottom ports. If you want to run a GC/SMC/Parker style valves then you will need is 4 valves on the corner that you want to 3 wheel. Plumbing is awkward. When the top valve opens to lift the car, you want the bottom dump valve to open. That way as the cylinder piston slides down the cylinder to lift the car, thenbottom chamber is dumped. The same goes for lower/3 wheelin but in reverse. When you go to lower the car, the top dump valve needs to open, and the lower fill valve opens. By the lower pump valve opening, it uses the tankl air pressure to shoot the cylinder up, and the air pressure holds the tire up to allow the three wheel.
Just remember when you lower the whole car, that corner is going to crop like a sack of potatoes now.....
