ive always wanted a lowrider and i finally have the money to do it. but i like my money and dont want to spend much. i dont have to be able to bounce it, but i want to go up, down, and three wheel it. im looking at a 85 monte carlo that i found with 20 inch wires. i just want a basic set up for as cheap as posible. i need to know just about every thing from batteries to springs. any thing would be helpfull.

20's and 3 wheel dont match. :thumbsdown:

you'll want a little play later on,most people start out with an off the shelf 2 pump 4 dump fbss sytem, and its performance will be totally based on system setup and design.

a good starting point for batts is either 36 or 48 volts, and that could be anywhere from 3 to 8 batts. I always tell guys to use the stock front springs in the rear, chopped to the heght you want. As for front springs.You wont need any 5 tons or anything, problly 3 tons at the most. you'll need 8" cylinders in the front, and 10's or bigger in the back

Just start looking around for setups like i described and get an idea on what you want to do.That car is a pretty common style to be juiced, just not with dubs

thats what i thought about the wheels, the only reasone i mentioned the 20's is becuase they are already on the car. so i think the 2005 Special FBSS Complete Kit from prohopper with 4 batteries will do just fine. BTW i live in north VA and want to know if anyone knows a place close where i can have it installed and about how much would instalation cost me.
