your set-up looks great

telling you from experience tire wear may be hard to control and also since we have front wheel drive cars its alot harder to get "three wheel motion"

I think the opposite(Hope). We put this all together so it can be realigned at predetermined height and strut pressure that I will normally drive the car. The tabs that weld to sleeve / that welds to the airstut have slots in them to align the car. Agree with 3 tire motion but the main objective for my suspension is to ride down on the tires low and only jack the rear for racing. Do you know what the stock rear air pressure is Gameover??? The plan is to just cap off the OEM rear airstrus lines, and leave the OEM air system alone and let it think rear struts are still hooked up, full, and not hitting bumps. And how high can OEM rear airstruts raise car? Will it damage them to top out? Things still not sure about .

Hope they last more than a month. They are brand new...I was afraid it would blow them quick if I roll the rubber on strut all the way out, AND ya I'm a playing maniac when I get a new control of any kind in my hands.

A Jag done at shop has touch screen remote with programmable presets and limits. But out of my wallets reach

I have to take car in to Mr.Goodwrench for fog lamp harness and wind deflector and I'm not sure how their going to take all this on a 3 month old car. Nitrous taped into TPS control and disabling the air system.There is an upside, they will have to prorate my unused premium extended warranty out. And that would pay for all the goodies.

2) Is the most important one in life, making practice of not allowing your income to be disposable while you slave for dollars.

The car got pushed back another day Custom shops is always a zoo, and now they have so many entrants in coming custom show it'* x2, and every owner wants a little extra something done.

sorry Silver, gone all day. Stabiltrack??? not sure. We tied the rear air struts into the back air bags and I caped off the airlines going to the rear air struts so as to trick the computer into thinking everything was OK,. I dont have any error Codes but I have no idea what effect doing that had on stabiltrack.... Any ideas???
