We should mention.. This is a low volume high pressure compressor. Since it was designed to pump the struts. It will pump up a tire.....but you'll want to grab a beer while waiting.

soooo GM still has my vehicle- the modulator in my backseat is not getting power to it for some reason and they will be replacing the modulator. Even though my warrenty is out they should be fixing it for free since they started working on it before the warranty expired.

actually i would say at LEAST two beers and a snack but it does eventually inflate the tire.


sorry if i'm being extra thick today ( must have been the beer while blowing up a tire ) but there is a switch on my 89'* compressor to direct the air to the struts? cause if i run it just as an inflator it doesn't seem to make a difference in ride height.

That'* funny... I went to fill up my kid'* basketball with the GXP inflator and it wouldn't work. I cussed up and down and threw a fit. I went over to the old 95 and filled it up just fine. I didn't even think they would have changed it so you need the ignition key on the new one. Guess I should read that little book in the glove box.
BTW the key has to be turned to the "ON" position on my GXP. Needing a key is actually a pain if you use it for around the house stuff like I always do, I like the no key version on my 95.
