I have a comment, juice is for the 64 Impala's and and all old skool lowriders. Air is the new definition(sp?) for adjustable suspension. IMO

dont like the 64 impala either. new hydraulic setups that use accumulators in the lines are said to ride the same if not better than an airbag setup. Look at it on a positive not if you get a leak youll be able to find it really fast lol

either way people like it, its personal preferences, its like asking whether you like s-10's or sonomas, lol its getting to be about the same on quality and reliability, lol at the shop I usually hang out at everyone runs dro's and they make fun of my bag setup, dont get me wrong i like dro's, hell I love the way they sound going up, they'll be like "yeah with bags you get a cool noise two, psssh pssh and then the compressor kicks on".....

yeah but what iv seen with running dro's is all the extra weight... like pumps, batteries, lines, thats alot of shit... and if you want just to drag ass and throw sparks... get bags. with the right setup bags can do crazy shit... i like the way bags move, more natural like. dro's make the car look like a damn robot.

I realize that air is easier for the average guy to learn and set up, but a properly set up hydro system can ride very well, and be very dependable. I have had various drivers bagged and juiced, and the hydros can actually have some advantages over air:

1. the ride is the same throughout the range of adjustment, unlike air, which stiffens as air pressure and ride height increase

2. on some trucks, such as an S10 with 20's on all fours, need alot of lift to clear big tires/wheels, especially on the front, and especially if body dropped. Hydros can give you plenty of lift, while maintaining a good ride. To clear 20's on a bd'ed S10 with bags in the front, you'll have to ride with so much pressure to clear the wheels it rides real bouncy!

not trying to start a war, just make people realize that hydros have come a long way since the old school set-ups, and are a viable adjustable suspension alterative!
