Don't do hydros, the ride sucks. Air ride suspension is almost as fast in raising and lowering, it's less complex and the ride is 74' Caddy smooth.

please do not tell me this is going to be a daily driven car. When I was 19 i made the mistake of getting a air ride suspension in my truck. rode very nice but if you play with it, you will brake it. riding your motorcycle to work in the winter sux. just make sure you approach it from all directions before making a not so smart decision. resale also takes a big fat shit.

you don't know when, you don't know where, but you will know why.

i would say it would be no more than 4 or 5k miles / year, so not really a daily driver. I was going to buy on already built so hopefully the resale taking a shit works to my benefit.

i was just thinking of front/back, side/side, 3 wheel, etc. i wouldn't want a hopper, i would think that more stuff would brake if you hopped it. is one more reliable than the other (air vs hydro)?

I would recommend air ride as opposed to hydrolics. A lot less maintenance and a lot easier to get a good ride.

yes, if you are going to do it, air is a much better ride. just not able to give yoiu 3 wheel. will do f/b/s/s.
