I'm tired of my car being stuck in one place every time I have a hydraulic problem. The springs are real short and it lays on the ground, not even driveable. It's a 63 w/ a 350. I still want it to be pretty low when dumped but at least driveable. I'd like to hop it a little here and there also but not neck-breaking stiff when I drive it. What do you guys suggest? Thanks for the help.

Well for a while the batts were dead and I didn't have a charger. Now they're all charged up and I think I have a bad solenoid or two. Just get a click when I hit the switch, first it was just the back pump and now it's the front too. Running 6 batts in series. I have a leak at the check valve on the back pump so it will dump slowly whether I want it to or not. I'm new at all this so I'm just learning as I go.

Thanks I'd rather learn by doing the work myself but it's good to know there's a shop in SA. Didn't know of any hydraulics shops in OC.
