Hey... I'm truly clueless when it comes to Hydraulics, but I have a great deal on the table for this car that has some. I have a couple questions.. Can you drive a car with hydraulics like as an everyday driver? What problems usually occurs with hydraulics and are they hard to maintain? Like can I even take the car on the freeway and go fast in it, or is it unsafe? My fault if I sound clueless but I am. lol When should you hit the switches..like at a stop or going slow only, right? I don't know how many pumps, or batts, or anything. I just know the car is a classic and looks so clean..and I'm really thinking about buying it... but I don't know if I could drive the car like everyday and have it hold up, ya know. If there's any others common problems with hydraulics or anything else I should know before hand, please let me know. Thanks.

depending on the size of the wheels you might not be going that fast on the highway....i drive my lac at highway speeds...get accumulators on the rear end if it doesnt have any and it will ride fine....tap the switch never hold it.....dont go flying around turns....

if you dont run your shit at high voltages, have a re inforced frame/reinforced stress points, dont abuse your set up, keep your batts charged, keep routine maitenance on your setup like changing seals on your cylinders annualy, changing fluid annualy, you should be fine, if i was you i would pm volv lo and get his book the science of a hydraulic suspension, if you dont know any thing about hydraulics it can teach you some shit, im sure i left out a few things but im sure some other peeps on here will tell you whats up
