Ok, Ok, I know your all thinking "OMG... WHY?"
but for some reason when i see some mini truck pull up to a parking space and hear "ssssss" and he drops to 1" from the ground, that really itrigues me...

so, am I crazy?

I jus think its really cool, and adds a REALLY great show effect. What would it do to the handling?, and has anybody had any sort of experience on this...

I did a search online for feedback or opinions on this practice and came up with completely nothing.

I dont think that the purple trep with Hydraulics and the supra wing is cool at all... I'm not trying to do that, im thinking less rice, less lowrider, just slick... :D

this is just an idea. and im not gonna do this soon, etc. Just pondering :rolleyes:

OK, ABOUT THE AIR-BAGS, THE WHOLE POINT IN GETTING EM IS SO YOUR CAR CAN BE LOWERED AND LABLED A LOWRIDER. YOU SAID YOU DON`T WANT TO DO THAT. ? .
I HAVE AN AIR-BAG SUSPENSION AND THE RIDE IS REALLY BUMPY. IF YOUR INTO RACING I WOULD ADVISE YOU NOT TO GET IT.
I THINK THAT TREP WITH THE HYDRAULICS LOOKS GOOD, I LIKE IT.

ok, ok well I really did contradict myself there. What I meant by less ricey, less lowrider is that I dont like the small chrome wheels, chrome fender flairs, or chrome or gold period.

Chrome rims are ok, but I personally prefer the steel look on our cars

Has anyone had any experience with this?

pros and cons?

Not to start any wars here but I didn't think it was possible to bag an LH car. I have called every bag and hydro shop I know and no one can do it. The reason is that our cars have McPherson struts. So if you were to remove the strut and put a bag in place, your only suspension would be the bags themselves. First off, that would be the most uncomfortable ride ever and second, I was told that the bags wouldn't support a 3800 pound car. If somebody has bags in their car please send me a pic of the install cause I would love to see and it and try to duplicate it.

They have air bags that support 1 ton dually trucks, (not to mention semi's run a ful air suspension) so finding some to support 3800lbs should be no problem. Perhaps some improvisation is in order.

I know they have bags that support 1 ton trucks but have you ever seen the size of them. The bags that are needed to fit in the wheel wells of our cars are not that big so the problem is that all of the weight of the vehicle is always on the bags. With no other suspension the bags take a serious beating.

I know that there is a way to get air bags on a LH car, if you go to Sounddomain.com look up 300M there is a guy that has a full airbag kit on his car, he also has 20" rims.. its pretty sweet. check it out
