Hey guys, im new here. this is my first post. im excited to be on board!

I have a 59 EL camino, and im finally getting ready to order my air suspension. i just got finished boxing in my trailing arms, and transferring all of my rear diff brackets over to a posi w/disc brakes from a 96 impala cop car. The front of the car is all stock suspension except for a disk brake conversion. i just got a full suspension rebuild kit front and back of graphite impregnated poly. i will be running a set of staggered chip foose 20s.

so my questions start.... i was looking at a kit on and was going to go threw them, but than my friend told me about i found more of what i like from cce, but have heard alottt of good things about AAC. What company do you guys recommend? does AAC have more than whats on their website?

What setup do you recommend? i want it to go up and down as fast as possible. i was assuming 1/2" lines and valves? 2- 5 Gallon tanks? 2 compressors? do i need the 10 switch kit or is that overkill, the reason i ask is cause with the rear panhard bar setup will it be able to do FBSS or just FB?

what do u think of the multi port systems?

what do you guys do with the 59-64 x frames, as far as the bag brackets go? Weld on or bolt on? my reason for asking is cause i have my boxed trailing arms ready to powdercoat but im not sure if i should wait and get the bracket kit first?

sorry for all the questions i figured i would get as many down as i could before i forgot.

any input helps.

thanks in advance.

Call AAC im assuming?  just looking for a broad range of tips from people who have done a similar install. what worked best sort of thing.
It depends on you actually. How you react to the lift/drop/ride/etc. If your violent, well you get shit that could kill you but hey... your violent. If your timid you may want something you can control easily.

where did you get those lil rubber thingys :0
Radio Shack sometimes has them, they come in packs as well as assorted sizes.
since the Ascos are connected to metal, you could ground them to themselves to clean up the wiring more.

i could do that but im not sure if i trust the contact between everything. cause valves arent really bolted down directly there kinda held in place by them loops if that makes sence. thats what you mean right like ground them through the valves?

Ahh, n/m I didn't see how you had the plate attached, my fault. See pic - this is the same principle as using the air tank for grnd also.

the off grn represents your main ground

the odd looking pink is the mounting points, you can either hide it under the plate, on the plate, or use the circled areas

the portions circled on the valve to your left is an ex of how to self grnd the valve (use one pole like usual but attach end to valve using original valve bolt)

NOTE: Valves you can self grnd

- Asco
- GC
- Air Lift

I love the way you spun those wires. Cool idea!
no real need for loom
