Can anyone provide schematics? I need to know what the overall setup should look like plumb'd and wired including the pumps, dumps, solenoids, batteries, feeds, returns,...etc.....

Thanks in Advance.

okay......I found these. I do have a couple of questions......

FRONT INSTALLATION.......
My 1st question is = The spring rests in the lower A-Arm pocker just like it currently is correct?????????? =

My second question is = Does the donut just slide over the cylinder all the way down and sit on the shoulder? If so, does the weight/pressure of the car hold the cylinders in place. That's what the donuts must be for correct???? The donuts must sit on the shoulder of the cylinder and press against the underside of the upper shock mount pocket???? =









Does the pressure/weight of the car keep the cylinders firmly in place? Do they have to be mounted or secured to the A-Arm or do they just "sit" in place????

1st question - Yes, it does.

2nd question - Yes, the donut will sit where the top of the spring once rested.
Yes, the weight of the car "holds" the cylinder in place. In some set-ups you have to be careful that your new 'shortened' spring doesn't fall out of place when there's NO weight on that corner; examples three-wheeling, hopping, hitting a big ass bump, etc. Depends on the car and the set-up though 'cause many lower control arms don't have enough travel to be able to move down far enough for a spring to fall out... but some do.

Thanks a million........this is beginning to become more clearer now. Now.........

The Pro X kit I bought came with two different sized cups....ones deep and the other is about half the depth...which gets used in the front and which gets used in the rear??

Also......for installation on the rear......

I'll be doing a coil over (The diagram above show a coil under).......
Does anyone have pics of a coil over? how does the spring sit over the cylinder?

What gets welded where????
Does the cup get welded to the axle or the trailing arm? What holds the cylinder in the cup....a bolt? or does the weight once again hold them in place???

Car, truck... what?

The deep cup primarily just lessens the chance of a spring popping out.
If you're doing a coil-over, you won't be using cups because the spring will be coiled around the cylinder.
