Just picked up a 84 cutlass, wanna do as much as possible. I'm coming from a 03 S10 with air ride, blew lines and compressors left and right. Had it for a year. So now on to bigger and better things. Anyone got any ideas what I can get.

for you first set-up keep it basic, you can get a comprehensive kit nowadays for under $1000, look at the prohopper all chrome kit for instance---$795.
do an 8 in the front, and 10 in the back, most likely these will be street cylinders and not comps. comps are better but cost more.
run 36 voltz to each pump as you get better on the switch if its a #6 pump, progressively max out to 60 voltz.
and yes, 2 pumps, and 4 dumps, get oil filled dumps such as italians, good operating dumps for under $60.
reinforce the frame 1/4 all the way around. this may sound like overkill now, but eventually as your hydro knowledge progresses, you will become more aggressive with your present and future hydro set-ups.
for now avoid 3 wheels and dog legging, this requires close to or at locking your cylinders.
get comfortable with the switch and your set-up, slowly but surely you will progress.
welcome to the wonderful world of hydros homie.

thanks guys, like I said, im coming from a air setup which I couldnt really 3 wheel with a 7-8" lift from the bag. I probably wont in the cut either. So what exact kit you guys think? Thanks so far. And can I install it? I installed my air ride on the s10 with no probs. Just never worked with hydro's before.
EDIT: Oh yea, what about accumulators? and the street charger. I'm definatly looking into those two items along with any kit I buy.
Edit2: 2003 All Chrome Kit Special $795.00 Damn thats nice. Just add batteries? heh
