it will work fine then,it will hold the weight of the car no problem,and if its to soft they can be bumped up in pressure to make it ride stiffer

Definitely not!

You need at least 3 but you will still sway unless they are 600psi or more. So just buy 2 for the rear.

id say 2 to the back.....When i talk to scott at REDS for my ladies ride, i wanted to do the same thing. He recommended not to put 1 to front and 1 to back.....he said, if you got the cash do 2 in the front and the back. Accumes weren't made for the pressure from 2 cylinders. they were created to handle the pressure of 1. Worst case cenerio is that the accum can pop from the pressure. So i got 2 to the rear, none in the front. She gots a two pump 3 switch set up as well.

I would say that this is not the main reason why I wouldn't do it... Although it could happen with a very heavy car or truck over 3000 lbs.

The MAIN REASON is safety. If you share an accumulator with two cylinders then you are sharing the fluid in both cylinders meaning you have NO WAY of controlling where the fluid goes.

SCENARIO WITH 2 ACCUMULATORS, 2 DUMPS and 4 CYLINDERS like you want
You are parked and raise your vehicle half way, then drive straight you'll be fine, as soon as you make a turn, the weight will shift and the fluid will transfer to the opposite cylinders making your car lean as far as the fluid will allow. On the HWY (if you were to drive on it) you go to pass someone, your car will tip side to side as you shift the weight.

Don't do it, its not worth it, pay the extra hundred and get at least 3 accumulator, 2 for the back and one for the front and make sure you have a dump for each rear cylinder too. Otherwise your back to the same scenario.

HOPE THIS HELPS>>>> :cool:

I know you say you don't care about sway but you have no idea what your in for until you try it.  So try it out and get back to us and let us know what you think.

the front spring pockets on a 50 deluxe is smaller than a gbody etc. so a normal size coil will not fit in the pocket thats why we have to use the stock springs :cool:
