i just put a air suspension set up in my lexus gs300 2 viair 450's 12 gal tank 8 smc valves 3\8 the pressure is set at about 185 and the cylinders are blowjax by airbagit i put the cylinders in and on the 3 bolts that go through the cylinder plate i have 1 bushing on each screw is that right or should i use 2 also the cylinders came with 4 bolts and4 washers for the rods are they used to adjust the height so the body won't touch the ground the car has a body kit. what pressure should i ride at in the front and back for the best ride and there is a air line ran to each cylinder should i put a accumalator on each line or is that to much

some people claim you need accumulators with air rods.
I wouldnt know either way.
but I do know too much pressure in the lines will make it ride shitty

air cylinders do not expand like bags do, therefore when you hit a bump they cannot expand any more and you get a rough ride. you will need to get accumulators if you want a better ride.

but air, unlike hydraulic fluid, is compressible...

(actually, hydro fluid is compressible, just not enough to even think about, unless you have a huge cylinder..)

but at a high PSI, it would "give" less than at a lower PSI..
