    good/bad price for kit?

    I dont know much about kits but this guy is about 5 min from my house.

    Is this a good set up? the price? is there any questions I should ask?

    Those seem like decent kits and are a little steep but not really to bad. But like slow said, if you have that cash check out suicidedoors. WHen you order that serious of a purchase he usually will hook you up. Ill pretty much keep all future air suspension orders with him or larry at IAS. But if you are dead set on those kits they seem fine, but the seller on the other hand is another question. Also sd has awesome customer service if you have ANY problems with anything he sells he will usually replace it with no problems

    Thanks guys...I just want to do this right.

    This is my wifes primary ride so I want to keep it reliable.

    Another question I have is this...How complicated to operate are the switches? I was thinking also about the E-pro system from air ride but thats a bit high in price.

    I am happy with my 5/5 drop but she is thrashing the front spoiler and bottoming out constantly and I need to put an end to that. If the bags aren't REALLY easy to operate she will probably cause damage if its possible to do. Not on purpose but with her MS (multiple sclerosis) she sometimes has cordination problems with her hands.



    Let me know what you think...How would you set up the blazer for a simple and reliable air system.

    I dont need it to lay frame...just to sit nice, low and have adjustable height. (I cant drive a blazer that sits high enough for her to drive without concern.)

    you can just do a F/B kit and have 2 3-way switches to go up and down. Simple and not complicated at all. Cheaper too

    the biggest difference between FB and FBSS is the wiring. either way, i would still run 8 valves.

    not necessarily, you can use 4 valves. a dump and a fill, tee-d to fill/dump both bags at the same time, and two more for the rear.

    Thats incorrect for the most part. FB system has 4 valves, front and back each sharing a set of fill and dumps.

    FBSS has 2 valves per wheel for independant control for 8 total. I couldnt imagine somebody spending the money for 8 valves and the time to plumb them and wiring them up shared like that.
    this is a test of the sig

    by using 8 valves, you eliminate air transfer that would occur if you simply tee'd the two bags to one set of valves.

    FB system does NOT mean 4 valves. you could have 16 valves, and a FB system.

    as i said before, the biggest difference is in how it's wired.

    Actually what both of u said is correct. MOST F/B systems are 4 valves, but u can use 8 valves to correct the air transfer between the bags...

    Best bet for controlling up and down. IS gettings smaller vavles get some 3/8 valves and 3/8 line. Or if you are super concerned and arent wanting your bags to hop or do anything besides hold your truck up. Then jason (suicide doors) now sells 1/4 inch vavles. That way it would be very controlable
