k i got a couple questions.. i have a 2 pump 4 dump setup on my ranger heres the problem. when i lock the rear up the front lifts even.. if i dump the rear a bit the drivers front drops quicker .. ive changed the check valves, ive changed the dump seals. and ive swapped accumulators from one to the other so im not sure what the problem is here.. could it be that the rear lines arent the same length?im at a loss here as to why its doing it.. i really wanna get this solved so i can be cruising and be able to adjust the front evenly...


also what should my accumulators be charged at for use in a minitruck? i have the regulator and nitrogen bottle at work all i need is the fitting and i can fill them myself. its a 86 ranger std cab long box with a 302 in it....

whats the correct procedure for recharging the accumulators so i dont hurt them? is it the same a a nitrogen cylinder?


thanks in advance!

I don't get that part, do you have one pump for the front and one for the back? Sounds like you have one for each side :dunno:

no.. i have a pump for the front and a pump for the rear... as long as the rears are locked up the front lifts and dumps even.. but if i drop the rear a little then the drivers side front lifts slower and dumps quicker. im not sure whats going on ...

i have switched accumulators from one cylinder (front and rear) to the other and it made no difference i thought maybe the pressures were different in them

is it possible that the uneven lines are causing this??? im at a loss.. i really gotta figure this out so i can ride a lil lower and still be level...

i have the same ass problem! and i have had to cut and extra 1/2'' of coil off one side in the front in order for it to lay even. pisses me off, and i cant get used to it. then again, i cant figure it out, so im stuck.

Sounds like to me your trouble is in the rear set-up. I'm not sure about what you're saying but I do know that.........
If one of the rear corners has a small leak at the cylinder, dump, or checks, or has air in the line.... when you hit the frt. switch up, it'll cause that weak link to give. Thus making the opposite frt. corner drag,or be slower, as it comes up b/c its opposite is giving in instead of being firm & holding up solid.
Hope this helps.
