the back end of my caddy goes up semi fast and comes down really slow, is this a kink in the line, its 3'8 line but I figured it wouldn't make much of a difference cause its so close, now I can get the front up really fast but its 1'2 line but 18 feet of it, I also took the shocks off and tried that but nothing, does anyone have any advice?

There is a big difference between 1/2 and 3/8s. Sounds like the bag port size is the restricting factor IMO.

whats the specs? valves, psi, tank size, stuff like that

the port size is 3/8" the bags are conitech, 175 psi, not sure the valves, but they used to be on a manifold and I took that apart to make it faster or just to get rid of the split and 90 degree turns, I've got two 9 gallon tanks.

the ports in the front are 1/2", it goes fast, I might be able to get it off the ground once I put my 14's on there, but everything is just recently been set up so I could start on the paint

the car itself has been sitting on a frame bench for a little over two weeks and the air from the front has leaked out over time, but the back end is still going strong, so thays kinda why I think theres a kink cause its not leaking as fast as the front did at all

they are compression on the bags, and the tanks
Compression fittings have a smaller ID then Ptc fittings, and I agree with Joe, you might have something blocking airflow, like a crushed compression fitting!
