    I use It's for mini trucks mostly, but I have had good experiances with them.
  4. morgan my brother was approached by a young dude at the kustom nats about his pontiac and he mentioned he did airbag setups somewhere out of bayswater for about $900 installed if i recall right but i spose if your gonna do it yourself itd be alot cheaper. let me know if you want his number and ill get it from my brother and pm it to you.

  5. who i recomend is AIM industries out of mesa AZ there website is, they have got just about everything in stock, and you can call and talk to a real person, there prices are good and the stuff is unfortunatly stamped out in china, but they have been doing the air suspension game since the 80's

    There Slamm'r XS6bags are pretty decent. They are knockoffs but they are built pretty well. I have a few as backups for my Cadillac.

    Their in-house valves and fittings are not so great same with the switches, better off going with suicidedoors and straight to Parker.

    If I were to do one from scratch I would really recommend finding a good manifold setups over individual valves, unless you absolutely need your valves on the tank and are running 3/8th or bigger and want to hop a bit.

    Check out Suicidedoors website) for 4 link parts.

    I bought these adjustable 4 link poly bushes from them which are really nice quality, Square ones(for lower arms) slip inside 50mm Heavy wall SHS and the smaller round(upper arms) ones slip inside 25mm ID tube. The other bushes are from a pajero rear trailing arms, rather than using solid nolathane or going for super pivots, these are ideal, give good articulation and they are rubber so will last.


    Also Slam Specialties from the same guys were $85US each which I thought was good.

    Shipping to NZ was reasonably priced, helpful guys to deal with too.

    If you want cheap knock off parts, got to AIM/Chassis Tech/ or whatever they are calling themselves this month. Its never a good sign when the company changes names as much as that place has. Personally I live down the street from them and won't even step on their property with as many problems as my friends have had with their parts. I choose to learn from their experience and buy the parts that AIM knocks off. You get what you pay for.

    There are lots of places you can order parts from. is a good one. I have used them back when they were still is also another very good source for mail order parts. The owner is a fellow club member of mine and he sells top quality parts. Thats where I get all my stuff these days. is another supplier I have used with very good results. They are good people and also sell quality parts.

    Remember, you get what you pay for.

    Avs has some really nice products and reasonable prices. Quality air ride has been slacking on parts availability here lately.

    For frame/suspension fabrication (notches, 4-link arms, tabs, etc.), Allstar performance, Welder Series, Pro-Werks, Vibrant, S&W < You can literally fabricate a whole frame from scratch with just these suppliers, as well as the exhaust system and anything else you'll need.

    For air suspension management, Accuair is arguably the best out there - Quality and function is top notch. It does cost a bit, but you get what you pay for.

    For bags, ridetech makes some nice air-over-shocks, or firestone for just bags (F9000, etc).

    Do a search on them. It is quite revealing.

    I work in a pro shop. We get our stuff from Gambino, KP components, Slam Specialties, and Accuair (we're a dealer).

    Also, I have to second that (new Suicidedoors website), and Welder Series both have top-notch stuff.

    Be careful about what you buy. Not all fabricators understand the laws of physics, and are building things that won't work very well (or even safely). I am not going to say who. It is not my place, and I don't want the flack, again, again.

    If you are unsure, ask. PM if you need to. Otherwise, stick to a proven design.
