also the compressor kicks in right. but it kicks in for like 2 mins shuts off for like 10 secs come on agian.. so on and so on. thats without hittin the switch.. and the valve only lift the airbags only like half an inch...

Do you have any pressure gauges? Do you know any details about the kit? Should have front struts. What kind are they. What kind of strut bearing. Sounds like you have some leaks or an electrical problem if the compressor keeps turning on and off.

Moron strut bags? never heard of them. It either has a bad balljoint of a bad upper strut bearing. Take it apart and see whats there for an upper bearing. The strut needs an upper bearing to turn without spinning the bag. Take some pics. Id guess its an aim strut.

i don't know if this is normal or not. but the compressor turns on when car is off will it drain the battery? also i could not hit the switch for 5 mins and compressor will still kick in.. so is it leaking or something??

The system will try to maintain a preset pressure in the tanks. When they leak it will turn the compressor on. They should not be connected to direct battery power as well. I wire all my cars to ignition so things like that cant happen. Either way, the tanks should not be leaking down like that.

You're lucky the bags don't squeal everytime you drive and not just when you turn. Some air struts will make noises when you driving. Airlift struts make noise like if the OEM top mount is loose, annoying as shit...
