i am wanting to use these cylinders for the rear of my impala, the shaft appears to be the same diamiter as a hydraulic cylinder, i want to use these in a canteliver type setup with my 360balls, think they would hold up

why do you want cylinders? bags give a better ride if you can work them into your type of suspension...

i COULD run bags but i was to run cylinders,one reasone is that you they are reversable,i mean they are able to "suck",so it would still do a standing 3, kinda hard to explaine but cylinders would be a good route for this situation,i was just wanting to know if they would hold up and if they would lift the back of a impala

whats the bore diameter? It might take some very high pressure to lift the impala with them...
what do you figure the back of your impala weighs???

what year Imp is it ?

thats what i was thinking about too,1964 impala,i want to get the same(or close) amount of lift, i was going to put the cylinders towards the front of the trailing arms giving it 10-1 ratio,or something like that

and remember, when you put the actuator closer to the pivot point, it takes more force to lift the load... leverage is your friend (or enemy).

I bet your car is very happy to have its ass up that high, I know mine would be!

I could work you just need some high dollar cylinders. Some SMC or Parkers. Like $650 each. They won't last very long either. Cause the PSI you will have to run in em to lift and roll lifted. i know two guys who have them n their trucks but they also have tubed rear frames.

so u dont think it would work?
not with those cylinders... but I have seen some big ones out there...
the bigger the bore, the less pressure you'll need..

Call the dudes that built the s-10 on cylinders. 928-314-4599 I'm sure they will help.
Or call the dudes that did the Mazda on Cylinders. 623-932-9141 ask for seth do not talk to tony he will try to rip you. i know the cylinders they used on the mazda were like $600 each. SMC or Parkers I believe.

I'd go with about a 4 or 6 inch bore...

but remember, the larger the bore, the more air it will use...
