well .... i say juice and only juice ..... i mean great both go up and down ... but the thing i love about it is fluid cant be compressed ... like pressures over 10,000 psi it dont give like gases(air) will do ...what around 250 psi or less
and i mean if you have to pay the same price
yes juice with pressures over 40 times stonger .. bigger thangs happen...
depends what your looking for my dad has a 68 new yorker on air lol its slow as hell but it rides nice and looks wicked but its so nice hydros will ruin it its liek 3/8" with a 125 psi pressure swith its mad sloooow but looks fly
I feel that if your gonna truly lowride.... bags are out of the question. Their not as powerful and don't move with the same authority as juice.
I laugh my ass off everytime I'm riding @ ride height and I pull up next to someone w/ bags, of course their gonna hit their air b/c they see my paint, my wires, my plaque, etc... And start doing side 2 side, a little see-saw, dump a corner or two, its' all good...... til I show that lit-up Porky's switch box....they know they've fu%ked up....especailly when I yank my front end off the ground 3 feet and all they can do is look.
Thats lowriding!!!!!!! Keep the bags in the Fast & Furious forum.
I honestly feel it all depends on the vehicle and what your trying to do. I have vehicles with hydros in them and I love them, but yet I have vehicles that I would never even think about putting hydro's in. Like BigDan said....he nailed some of the reasons on the head.
If you don't wanna juice a vehicle like a Regal, Impala, Cutlass, Fleetwood, etc..... Then you also don't need to try to lowride it then, you need to keep it near original.
I understand bags on say a new Cadillac DeVille or something like that.
I have an SUV,(Expedition), w/ 2 blk. pumps under the rear. It rides fine. If I didn't hit 'em, you wouldn't even know they were on there.
Also, a buddy of mine has a Honda Prelude w/ 2 pumps & its awesome. It'll bunny hop about 10-12in. off all 4's and 3 wheel the rear.
Bags just couldn't compare.....
Also, I believe most people buy into the whole bag thing because they "want a better ride". When the same ride is possible w/ hydros.

I think it also depends on what kinda car u get say a new impala whos gonna juice it has no frame u can bag it and have an adjustable supension same with many new nice cars the town car is about the only one with a frame now days ive got juice in my fleetwood but some 20's and bags is tight for a new impala
Im sure this has been covered before but my search isnt turning up anything.
I am doing a hidden setup in my 67. Going for a 70s style lifts setup using flipped 8" in the rear (nothing in the trunk). But how do you flip cylinders in the front? Is it a small coilover? is it strong enough to lift...
over the years layitlow has seen this question 1000x's. do skirts fit on a lifted impala....this could be a thread dedicated to skirt clearance issues. and make it easier on the backyard builder to find parts for his project. there are few options available.
1. narrow stock rear end
I have a regal -78 /g-body with telescopic pistons in the rear, I am afraid that I will damage the gearbox if I drive the car in locked up or three wheeling it when driving. (Even if I don’t drive crazy high in any way.)
Now to my question, is it enough to shorten the drive shaft...
