Can anybody suggest a good yet inexpensive air ride kit? I know that's sort of an oxy moron but the one kit I saw was for $3000. :eek:
Thanks

I got one from air ride tech, actually from Ibuildem ??, a member here. 3500 for the whole front and back, controller, two pumps, 5 gal tank and a sway bar for the front. JR

This is what I'm looking at.
All I want to be able to do is park, drop the back, raise it back up again from in the car.
Will this get me there? Thanks guys.

It'll only get you partly there. You would need a 4 link, truck arm type or ladder bar(least likely choice) to go with the air ride. TCI and Heidt's both sell 4 links with the air ride as an option. I'm not sure if any of the other companies that sell 4 links have an air ride option but I would think that providing there is enough room for the air springs, it would only be a matter of replacing their coil overs and using air springs.

What are you trying to do?
are you just wanting to rase or lower the rear 2" or go from ride hight to slammed ?

I have the air ride street challange system on my car and with that system you take off the springs and in stall there 4 bar system and use the air bags/shocks you show to replace the springs so you can control the height of you car with there controler.
this is a link to what I have on the rear of my car just copy and paste to see a picture of what I am talking about.

Don't forget about de-arched leaf springs. Click on my signature & go to the wagon pics. It don't get much lower than what I got.

I went with Airliftcompany.com. It's their easystreet kit just for 62' to 67' novas. Comes with everything including rear leaf springs and shocks. I did front and rear but you could just get the rear from them. Improved my ride awhole lot and was a breeze to put in. Scott
