Is it possible to use a hydro cylinder instead of a bag.Like i got 3/4" air line's dual port on back and single on front and i wanted to put air cylinders on it ,but they dont have enough lift.so could a hydro cylinder hold air in it? any comments???

Man, you crazy?. You would need shit loads of pressure to lift your car, hydros work at 1000psi or more and air up to 300psi or so. The only way to do it like that is to run a large Cylinder with hydro fluid on one side and air on the other......naaaa that still wouldnt work.

what the problem is, is that the bag has a huge surface area, while the hydro cylinder has a very small one..

pressure X area = force.

with 150 PSI on a hydro cylinder, your car wouldnt budge, even if it's a Yugo.
