why wouldnt you use hydraulics? why would anybody want to choose air over hydros?
lets see, I'll tell you my reasons for bagging the 64..

simple to return to stock: lets face it, these cars are worth more uncut..

no lakes of oil in my trunk: leaks are inevitable, I dont want them..

ride quality: I know, accumulators and blahblahblah...

trunk full of batteries: no thank you.



the only advantages I see with juice are...

1. hopping: if you dont reinforce, you will break your car. I dont want 1/4" plate welded all over my clean ass frame

2. 3 wheeling: brings me right back to the reinforcing thing..

3. pretty much limitless playtime: nothing beats juice in this respect, but it is a sacrafice I'm willing to live with. everything has its trade offs..

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...

IF SOMEONES SO MUCH FOR ONE OF THOSE, WHY EVEN COMPARE EM???
I DONT COMPARE THOSE 2 TOTALLY DIFFERENT SUSPENSION SETUPS!!!

IT'S LIKE COMPARING A BALLON TO AN AIRPLANE!

NOT SAYING ONE THING'S BETTER THAN THE OTHER!
TO EACH HIS OWN...

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.

it all depends on what vehicle it is and also what you want it to do ,personaly i think air is good for trucks suvs hondas etc n juice should be for the rest :biggrin: i prefer juice thats my .02

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.
