Each kit will come with a Viair 280 Compressor that is 12v. If you have a 6 volt system, you will need either a 12 volt battery to run the system or change over your ride to 12 volt. The kit also comes with a 2 gallon tank. An adjustable pressure switch along with a 12v relay and harness also accompany the kit. This allows you to adjust the speed and consistency of air management system. This switch send a signal to the compressor to come on at a certain PSI so that you always have air in the tank when ever you need it. Its what we call, ON DEMAND. Each kit contain a hardware pack and 1/4" fitting pack. It will also come with an est. 100 feet of 1/4" hose. You might ask, why do we use 1/4" line. One word, LIABILITY. Everybody that is in the mini truck industry, use 3/8" or 1/2" maybe even bigger line to make there vehicle lift fast or even hop. These kit will not take that kind of abuse. If you attempt the parts will fail, so use at your own risk. Now on to the valving. Your 4 valve kit comes standard in each kit, This will allow you to lift the front of the vehicle up and down as well as lift the rear up and down, as well as lift each wheel individually. This will give the car great handling characteristics. This is also a manual valve, air goes in as you lift the toggle up and when you depress the toggle, air comes out. This kit is outfitted with a dual need gauges to monitor pressures.Recommendations - For all applications, the standard air ride kit will do what you need. If you want to get as close to the ground as possible, get the drop spindles. If you are going to use stock wheels, you want to go with 135sr15 tires up front and a 2" narrowed beam. If you plan on going with a 5.5" wide wheel similar to an EMPI five spoke, BRM or Sprint star, a 4" narrowed beam would be ideal. Porsche 4.5''s in the front, I would go with a 3" narrowed beam and the air ride. To order a narrowed beam with your purchase, check them out here. We also recommend doing the install with the body off, with a 220 amp welder and some one who has experience welding. Why an Air Ride Kit? - Are you tired of the stiff ride? Are you looking to have an adjustable suspension with a flip of a switch? Are you dragging you car everywhere you go? Can?t get into your driveway? If any of these questions pertain to a need that you have, then the Complete Air Ride Kit is your answer. Should I install them or have a licensed mechanic install them? - If funds allow, have a trained technician install them. Better to have them make sure everything is right and you will not be second guessing yourself. If you are educated and have the correct tools, a back yard mechanic can install them but we do recommend you have a professional take a look after you are done. Accessories, check the box to include with your order.
