definately go with showtime, chrome pumps are fine but make sure you dont get the chrome cylinders because after a while the chrome flakes away and fucks up all ur shit... also make sure you run coil-overs in the rear it is not a big deal to setup and is SOOOO worth it, anybody will tell you... also, run 14's instead of 13's...

My suggestion is don't get Reds. Go w/ the PH or Showtime. Reds isn't known for making quality pumps.

Go with a PH pro-comp set-up,spend a couple hundred more and you have a reliable system.

they have never been bad for anyone ive talked to. like said in other topects prior to this. reds started the game out. and still are going so they are doing something right. plus in my lil time in the lowrider hydraulic game they have helped me out the most. costumer service wise. not saying others are bad buti got my shit in like three days and simple shipments from other companies went wrong.

plus it seems like uys like shortys in houston and reds cali with the belair wagon are swingin pretty hard on reds. thats just my two cents.

red's is still # 1 you get what you pay for. customer service is great. There products are built to last. I guess its cause Ive been a satisfied customer for 10 years.

If Reds is making quality pumps now then that's good. I've been riding on switches for over 10 years and back in the day reds made some pretty (but shitty) pumps. They may have stepped up their game but I still won't by them.
I have no problem w/ Showtime equipment but I don't like to buy from the either because of shitty customer service. They fuck up all my orders for customers.
:thumbsdown:
