you want pressure...... lift car after bleeding the lines. lift it up then ut the plug in ( with teflon ) and then drop the car, thats all the pressure ( air ) you need. anything else your gonna have problems

PUT A GUAGE ON IT SO YOU KNOW THERE IS PRESSURE IN THE TANK AND NOT ANY SUCTION, THROW AWAY THOSE RODS THAT COME WITH THE AIR KIT AND USE 1/4" THREADED ROD PLEASE. I WOULD USE AT LEAST 100 PSI.

WHAT DO YOU MEAN DONT TOUCH IT, GO AHEAD AND TRY IT OUT AND SEE FOR YOURSELF. IF IT DIDNT MAKE A DIFFRENCE THEN I WOULD HAVE STOPPED LONG TIME AGO. 100 PSI DOES NOY DO ANY THING TO THE SEALS. IF YOU DONT PLAN ON PRELOADING THE SYSTEM THEN PUT A BREATHER ON THE TANK TO ALLOW AIR TO TAKE PLACE OF THE FLUID THATS GONE WHEN YOU LIFT YOUR RIDE.

COME ON HOMIE, YOU PLAYIN IT SAFE THATS ALL. IVE HAD FRIENDS LOOKING IN THE TRUNK AND AS SOON AS I STARTED ADDING PRESSURE THEY STTEPED BACK A COUPLE OF FEET"AT FIRST", NOW EVERYBODY IS DOING IT. AND ANOTHER THING, ADDING PRESSURE TO A REGULAR TANK OR A PISTON TANK IS THE SAME THING TO THE SEALS, SO YOUR SAYING ITS "SAFER" TO ADD 300 PSI TO A PISTON TANK THAN A REGULAR WITH 100 PSI, CAN THE SEALS TELL THE DIFFRENCE?????? AND HOW CAN YOU SAY YOUR FUCKINGUPSHIT IF YOUR CAR IS THERE SAFELY IN THE GRASS, LOOK AT MINE FOOL!! ARE YOU PLAYING GOLF?

WHAT SHOULD I DO IF THE AIR LEAKS OUT, REMOVE THE PLUG AND LIFT THE CAR, THEN ADD TEFLON AND DROP IT AGAIN. THEN THE BEST THING YOU CAN DO IS PLUG YOUR TANK WITH A 3/8 CHECK VALVE TO ALLOW AIR IN AND NOT OUT.
