F/B to FBSS help?

I know the general concept of this, but a little clarification would really help. From my tank, I have 1/2" air lines that runs to a T fitting into 3/8" lines... One for the front and back. I know I would need 4 more valves, but how would I go about running the air lines and wiring? Does anyone have any wiring diagrams or FBSS diagrams?

the easiest way would be to just ditch the airline you already have. then run 4 strands of airline coming off the tank. 1 for each corner. to wire it. you just ground all the grounds and run the possitive of all the valves to the proper wire on the switchbox

Thanks! and in terms of making sure all the bags are evenly filled, would i need a digital management set up? or would the bags just naturally fill to the same pressure? (obviously when hitting a switch wired to more than one bag)

Re: F/B to FBSS help?

best way to make sure the 2 fronts are evenly filled is to make sure the airline coming from the valves to the bags is the EXACT same length. and same for the 2 rears. and then if you run gauges that will just verify that everything is where you want it to be

2 valves? Do you only have the front or rear bagged? If so then just 1 up/down

Re: F/B to FBSS help?

Are you sure there's only two? I couldn't imagine only have all up and all down. Can you make the front and the rear dump/fill independently?

Re: F/B to FBSS help?

you have 2 "pairs" of valves. do your homework. you can add as many switches as you want depends on what your wanting to achieve, but again do your homework.
