I say use Cans... after all the research i've done, Cans seem the way to go because of the ease of repair and fabracation to the brackets... if anything happins to the AirStruts, then your out of a car for a couple weeks waiting to get the strut back from being repaired by AirLift. And the $$ on repair is a bit high i hear.

IMO

cans aren't that smooth as Strut bags though. I hear the ride is shitty, but some say it's not. I guess it's a prefference thing.

i hear the same thing, some say they like it because it's more responsive (like haveing a set of coilovers) and some say it's just to damn bumpy...

but if you want it to ride like a Caddy, i hear all you need is an Accumulator and it's all good.

We'll see after I install my shit.

my homie had some accx in his Saturn, yes it's a SATURN... lol. He said it was still a little choppy w/the accx in there. Let me know about it though. I might bag my Honda soon or just end up juicing it.

I looked at the Juice too... but i dont have a lot of room for batteries and shit... 1 5gal air tank and a compressor should fit fine for me.

what mainly got me away from the AirStruts, is because i can only lower my shit 4", and i'm already smackin the ground... the Airstruts go about 6" lower then stock... and there is no way to fab up anything to raise the ride height when at 0psi. (i talked to 4 diffrent companies that sell the airstruts, and AirRide them selves on fabbing some shit up, everyone said no, you can't do shit)

Thus, i decided on the Cans. nice and easy to fab up, and can get as small or as large of stroke as you want.
Nothing like sitting at a light when an F150 pulls up along side of you, you flip the switch for Max PSI, and your small-ass rice burner turns into a fucking Monster Truck 4x4, :eek: lol

All I need is 4 batts. The pump I was thinking of getting a whammy in there cause the bandpass tat I got (I know I know, but it was free and it does the job), fits best near the back bumper. But then I didn't like the thought of trying to clean back there.

I might do a canned ride... something different for me.
