I have been on and off of the board for many years. I at one time had a s10 but I had to sell it when times got hard anyhow back to the question at hand.

I have read up and learned that the struts that are on my daily tend to give out and become very expensive to repair so I am looking to replace my 1993 Cadillac Deville's air suspension, since I have the money to do so now. I have the usual McPherson Strut setup which comes on the 93 Deville. I would like to go ahead and replace the suspension ASAP with aftermarket struts for the front and bags in the rear. Which apparently is the norm for a aftermarket set up for the make/model.

Here is a current set-up someone is running on layitlow.com:
8- 1/2 valves
2- 1/2 HP DC 5000
2- Front Struts
2- Rear Bags
1- 5G Chrome Tank
4- Switches mounted to Gauges

The word is that he really only has enough to air up and really no play time. So I would like to upgrade pieces.
I plan on buying everything from SD.com since the last 4-5 years I have heard nothing but great things about Jason. So I would like to get a list of absolutely everything he can supply me with to complete my set up.
I am looking to do some FBSS but other then some freedom to play around with the corners and just lay out at a stop light I could care less so long as it works very efficiently for a daily driver. So I guess I dont really need 16 switches if it cost a huge difference.......

Also I have been watching Ice Road Truckers on the History Channel and have seen them pour a liquid (Methyl Hydrate ?) into the air lines to unfreeze the lines when its its obviously cold as ****. So I am assuming I can do the same with a water trap installed? Is this necessary since I have had no problems with my stock air setup? Since this is my daily I was thinking about running steel lines instead of the norm....whats the damage to the wallet by upgrading to the steel lines?

Thanks for all the Help

Im sure it gets cold up there by you but I think on that show they are in -35 degree weather, its not that cold by you.

For the steel lines, im not sure but I dont think you would have a problem using normal air line.

For more "play time" get another tank and that should keep enough pressure to play with in the system.
