Default Air Compressor for Load Leveling

Are there any other replacement options for what I can use for my car? Like this one? I don't want to spend over $100 and most of the OEM compressors go for $170 on ebay and over $300 new from GMPD and other GM Parts warehouses.

Hmmm thinking about one of the first two kits. The Load Controller I is a heavier duty but the II is cheaper and might do the job just as well

I'm afraid if I get a used one it'll go bad like mine after a short while

My 97'* worked great til 06ish... I picked up a JY one at that time and it'* still kicking butt. It'* hit or miss. I think if the struts are bad and it'* constantly running, it self destructs.

Ahhh ok. Well I did find a deal on a Load Controller II kit with Air Lift 1000 springs (I'd just turn those around and sell on ebay) for $140 shipped, both brand new in box. Guess I'll have Gunner check JYs and then get whichever is cheaper.

Another reason I was looking at the Air Lift kit is I would have control of the compressor from the cab if I'm looking at the kit and how it works right.

You won't be let down if you install it. I have the air struts and the air lift in Bonnie. Then Tommy would see it and have to go install one to get his trunk off the ground from all the stuff in there.

It'* great for stopping weight transfer and getting a little grip with the front end.

Would these fit on the Bonne? They're the springs that come with the combo I can get a deal on. I'm thinking they're too big

Check the manfacturer'* website or call their customer service dept is the best advice I have on that.

That seems like a good price for what I would consider "drag bags", if of course they fit our bonnie'*.
