i am new to the lowrider world, and i was wondering what you people who are educated in lowriding would say would be beter for a beginer to start with. i have a 91 mercury cougar, and i want either air or juice. i like the hopping of the juice, but my dad and his co-workers have done air-ride alot before at their shops, but have never done hydraulics, for cars atleas. it is a heavy duty truck and welding shop, but they have done the airride before, so i just wanted to hear a few of you opinoins and if you have any suggestions fro setups and prices (in canadian) that would be great.thanx

yeha i was leaning more towards a hyraulic set-up, what would you suggest for a cheap beginers set-up. i am only 17. oh and my dad works at a heavy duty truck and welding shop, so is there any thing that i could use off the hydraulics on the big rigs? because there are always spear shit laying around..

BAGS ARE FOR YOU, IF YOU WANT LESS MESS!!! JUICED RIDERS ALMOST ALWAYS HAVE NEGATIVE REMARKS FOR BAGS, BUT BAGS ARE A MUCH SMOOTHER RIDE AND DESERVE MORE RESPECT, THE RIGHT BAGS SETUP CAN COMPETE WITH SOME OF THE BEST HYDROS (4 HOPPING) AND NO RISK OF FIRE AND NO NEED FOR 16 OR MORE BATTERYS, ONE MARINE BATT. AND YOU ARE GOOD 2 GO, NEED TIRES FREQUENTLY AND WAKES NEIGHBORS AT NIGHT WHEN YOU GET HOME AND "LAY OUT" BUT NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT, I LOVE HYDROS BUT I PREFFER BAGS!

get a car with a frame if you want juice...especaily since its your first ride...bags are ok if you want to sound like a bus when it stops at a stop....Juice it...You can get better ride from juice with the addition of Accumalators to your hydro kit...if you want real smooth go with 1 accume per cylinder...Ride better than bags...better than stock....Get a 70s t bird and juice!

with my GEO, why would you consider anything but JUICE? it is much quicker, less noise, FASTER, and you'll love it more when people ask, "is it bagged....?" and you respond, "no, HYDROS"......they will look at you like.... :dunno:

everyone thinks i am bagged til i hit it quick...then they are like.... :dunno: :worship: :thumbsup:

HYDROS gets more respect and when done right can COMMAND respect

peace

If you are pussy get air!j\k
I love my hydro's,and with rear accumulators it will ride like stock,so don't believe the BS the mini truckers try and feed you abouty the ride(they're just pissed they have to spend 3x as much to get their air to do mini hops).
It all depends on what you want to do,and i agree with this other guy,find a car with a frame,you c an do so much more.

What are you wanting you car to do?

Are you concerned about having a nice ride?

just get another car and bag one and juice the other. I got an 84 cutty with juice and an 05 galant with bags. I love both of my cars. There is good and bad with both set-ups. so go for what you want. you dont need no ones opinion do what is going to make you happy and what you can afford, because neither set-up is cheap.
