    hey everybody what's up , I recently did an air ride setup on my 64 mercury montclair marauder 4 door.

    Can you guys tell me which pressure switch you are running?

    I have 1 viair 444c a 5 gallon tank 3/8 valves in rear t'ed and 1/2 inch fast valves independent front it was t'ed and did not like the way it came up so I added more line and one more switch. It just seems like the compressor is always running takes a lot longer than it says on the stats. no leaks , at least that I have found. I just wanted to see what pressure switch was being used by the rest of you guys thanks , I will be posting a build thread when I move the pics to photobucket.

    ok first your question has nothing to do with galaxie owners is a basic airride question. second that 444c compressor is usually sold in a dual back meaning you would have two of them for a 5 gallon tank you could have them shut off at 175 or they are rated up to 200 psi. all depends how much air pressure you want to run. i myself would cut them off at 175 to give them alittle break and not work them to there max. But the problem u are facing is due to the fact that you are only running one comp, thats why your fill times are so slow.

    I personally hate electric comp if I were u id do a edc using a York a/c comp then u could easily run 200psi and the fill times are crazy fast. There are a ton of info on the net to do the conversion and its pretty cheap to

    I run 2 comps @ 175 psi cut off , 5 gallon tank and only get on lift. I run the ridetech shockwaves but need extra damping on 63 galaxie. Do you have any pics and info on your front damper type and position please

    wow thanks everybody , i was being specific on the galaxie because i was not sure if the weight of it had anything to do with enough pressure needed to fill the bags , i am just not wanting to blow through the compressor. I may just convert my old a/c to use to fill it, not quite sure yet. I am not trying to play up and down all day just use it to lift and drive. I just know that the 200 psi one was wrong but thats what the local guy sold me and I trusted him.

    I just want an idea of where on the front arms to mount the dampers and what the open and closed lengths are . Thanks

    I am currently in process of modifying a valve 850 air con pump to fit instead of the electric compressors . Just thought I would let you know. Pics on my link
