    I am going to start expermenting with a full airbag suspension. I ordered a firestone catalog but those boys are SLOW. Been calling them up every week pestering them about it. Anyone know if there is an online catalog(none on the firestone site but maybe someone has one?) Thanks

    I don't know, but I would check out some of the HotRod sites- I've got some catalogs from these guys and they had some air bag stuff in 'em. Have no idea where I put them, so I don't have any names.
    I like the air bag suspension thing,- If you got an on board air comp. then why not a airbag suspension!- Sounds like a good idea to me. I would think the travel might be limitid, so you would need to run some funky links or a rocker arm kinda thing.

    Check with Goodyear, they make air bags as well.

    Last year I designed a 1/4 scale model (not a chevy though) got things worked out pretty good with LOTS of atriculation. Unfortuatly the model was destroyed by a fire in our warehouse. If my K5 susp comes out as well as I hope I might do some low production run kits.....
