I just got a pair of accumulators from cce today. So I figured I'd hook them up and go for a ride. I tee off the lines and add the accums. While I'm at it I fill up the tank cause some fluid leaked out. But when I hit the switch the car raises up a couple of inches and then that's it. I can't get it to lock out anymore or even get it high enough to get out of the driveway. It seems to go down slow too. WTF!!!!!! What did I do wrong?? Did I hook everything up wrong?? Did I put too much fluid in the tank?? Anyone got some advise?? :(

Haven't tried that yet. But after I started haveing the problems I thought that myabe my batteries were just too weak to handle the extra stress the accums added. So I let them charge for a couple of hours. Now I can get it to lock out but it is slower then shit. It feels like it is struggling to lock out. I'm gonna let them charge all night and all day tomorrow and see what happens. I also need to take the shocks off, maybe that will help a little.

Yeah they came pre charged. I just got home so I'm gonna see what's going on with it. The batteries have been charging all day, and I'll take the shocks off. Hopefully things will be better. I called cce today and they told me that the accumulators should not make my set up any slower. :confused: I have always heard different.

Everything seems to be cool I guess. The car jumps up on the first tap of the switch then it is a little slow after that. Might be because I am only running 2 batteries. Maybe a little more juice will help. On a good note it rides a whole lot better. Now my wife won't have to ride with her arms crossed anymore. :roflmao: Thanks for all the help

Where can I find a steel fitting for that??? I just got that at Home Desperate. The fitting kit from cce didn't have everything I need. Now can I just add another battery to that, or do I have to do anything special?

YOU DON'T NEED TO REMOVE YOUR SHOCKS. IN FACT DON'T REMOVE THEM
