    valve question

    just wondering how these valves work? what is the point of having the "heads" on both sides with the electrical? Does it help it fill and dump faster when both sides are wired?

    or does it allow the air to flow both directions?

    good question it could be to flow both ways, why you would want to do that I dont know other than dumping air back into the tank. It could be like a PSI monitor? Or maybe a flow controll of some sort?

    Thats a "Stealth Valve" from Slam Specialties. It's 2 valves in one...a 1/2 or 3/4" high flow valve for regular use, and a 1/4" valve for "stealth use" if you're trying to adjust your suspension without drawing any attention to yourself. It's supposed to be run in conjunction with the "Stealth Control" unit, but it wouldnt be that hard to wire up your own control box for it. They're kinda pricey though, and you'd still need 8 of them...and at $80-ish each for the valves and $100 or so for the controler....I'll stick with my smc's and toggle switches..

    I actually have these valves and the controller on the twin engined truck.

    http://www.blazinlow.com/forum/attac...&postid=388311

    IMO if you go this route, spend the money and get their cable assemblies, comes complete with sealing boots and then each dual valve wiring is only 3 wires into terminals on the controller module.

    the controller is awesome, 2 sets of 9 buttons and a fast / slow selector switch. only 3 wires to connect the controller.

    lefts side buttons make it go down, right side buttons make it go up.

    each side has buttons arranged at 45 degrees with a center button.

    each sides Center button is all bags, North button is both fronts, south is both rears, East is the passenger side up, north east is right front , etc........


    Valves fast side are 3/4" and the slow side is 0.060 orifice. 450 PSI rated too



    ADVANCED APPLICATION :) Part of the reason for selecting them is that I added my own control circuit and relays to allow the selection of the slow side to be wired into a Dakota Digital ARC 1000 for presets and automated features

    swapping the relays to the fast mode allows the remote control of the ARC-1000 to be used for severe manuevers with the 3/4" side of the valves.
