    Post Airbags vs Hydraulics?

    I want to know would i have to cut up y blaazer to put hydros and if so how much and how extensive would it be.

    I would like to put hydros but i dont really like the idea of cutting my truck up. I would put airbags but i want my ride to dance. not some serious dancing shit but small shit.

    any help would be grateful:(

    I would go with bags too unless you want your front end to bounce up 5-6 feet.

    pluse I like the hissssss... it makes over the robot like noise hydros make.

    but this is my opinion.

    Hydros are out dated, unless of course you have a 64 Impala. Hehehe. If you blow a line on hydros you get a BIG pink greasy mess. With bags if you blow a line you get, well, nothing. Onelow is right, with a Co2 bottle, you could hop it at a truck show all day.

    Yes a PINK mess. The pink stuff is what should be used in hydraulic suspensions. It's more expensive but it keeps the big pumps lubed properly. The clear stuff is almost just jack oil.
    I have seen a bagged Toyota with 1.5" line, on 800psi of nitrogen. That thing out hopped all of the hydro guys at that show. Damn I wish I had video camra with me. He ended up blowing a bag and guess what, no mess! Just an $80 bag.

    about 800 pounds on a bottle

    no way in hell can u have 800 pounds from a bottle. the most i have heard of was 500 pounds there is no valve that can hold 800 pounds and no bag can hold 800 niether. when u get ur bottle filled its filled 2 around 550 and u use ur reg. set at around 300 so u dont blow valves.

    Well I don't know exactly what that guy had setup, but I do know that Parker makes 800 psi solenoid valves and I have seen steel nitrogen tanks rated a 3000psi. Just because there's 800 in the tank doesn't mean that there's 800 going to the bag. I didn't ask what he had it regulated at. I'm guessing 450-500. At that much pressure you obviously don't hold the switch long enough for the bag to take all of that pressure. That guy was just flicking the switches as fast as he could but later that day he did blow a bag. If I had to guess, I would say that toyo was gettin about 4 feet.
