Every day for me is the samething. I drive like a granny so no one hits my car or I don't bottom out and rip my body kit off. But this morning I was so fucking pissed that I took a quick corner. Right after I came off the corner the car was higher on the side i took the corner to then the other. Then I had to drop it and raise it again. Why does this happen? Are the valves letting air back into the tank? This shit just got on my nerves. :angry: Cmon Joe, I know you must have an answear. :biggrin:

The valves are probably letting the air back in the tank because you need I belive 200psi in the tank to keep the valves closed. I had alot of sway in my car around turns on cylinders so I got a upper strut bar, lower and rear tie bars and it took away alot of the sway.

rice rockets are not low riders. their a completely different animal. a very ugly little animal, like a mole.



i know ive taken corners pretty fast in my car, and i know i didnt have 200 psi in the tank.

I Have an Accord with Air cyclinders also. ;)

I wouldn't lower it. I normally raise all corners when doing quick turns.

It happens to me also though.

the pressure in the cylinders overcame the pressure in the tank and it bled back to the tanks. you need to have more tank psi than bag psi at all times or it will equalize. the only way to solve this is to use manual valves or put a check valve between the tank and valves.


i like to drop the same side that im turning to. say im turning left, slam the left so it like a banked turn.

I found it weird. I just started driving this car about a week ago cuz the insurance kills. And the other setup that I did on my old car was ok. No sways oe nothing. But maybe it was because the car was much lighter with no sound system and nitrogen bottle. And the 2000 civic is about 500 pounds heavier than the 93. If my dad was still here I would have gotten a 64 impala and isure it under his name. Oh well. I'm just gonna roll slow :( :tears:
