Hi all, I am new to this forum and want some input on what I have been doing to my rig I have been working in a air ride system for the rear suspension of my rig. Here it is. I got some input from some other forums about the Revolver shackles and after some thought I decided against them. By not using the Revolvers I do not have the problem of articulation with the rear spring mount and the best part of it is this also saved me $185. + S&H. I have taken the truck for a few jaunts to test the ride and handling characteristics and I am very pleased with the outcome. On washboard roads I feel nothing but I can hear the washboard on the tires. I can raise and lower the system without putting any more stress on the springs because the double shackles are able to open and close with the truck height. I am also going to incorporate an on board air system to be able to inflate or deflate each airbag independently by two, three way rocker switches. To do this I am using air solenoids, and also connect this to my alarm system with relays so I can raise and lower the truck with the use of the two extra buttons on my alarm remote control. I obviously have too much time on my hands and I think the mind-expanding drugs that were so prevalent in the early seventies have something to do with these convoluted ideas I have. I get 4 1/2" of adjustable lift from the airbags and 4 1/2" of lift from the new flip shackle mounting brackets. I have no lift blocks on my axle now and that is an other advantage to this setup. The 2 piggybacked shackles when in the full open position limit the amount that the airbags can be stretched. The airbags are the firestone 224C rated at 3150 lbs. each. I got them for free from Valley Spring in Phoenix as the owner wanted to see what and how I was going to do it. I plan on getting a two needle single air pressure gauge from the truck junkyard so I can monitor the air pressure in each bag. Also use a relay to run the compressor so the pressure sensor switch is just used to activate the compressor relay and not burn out the sensor switch. Also install a mini LED light off this relay so I will know when the compressor is running. A good psi that inflates the bags at the height I need is about 50 psi. This is also a low psi for a very comfortable soft ride. The air solenoids go for about $75. each, check out <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.truckn.com>www.truckn.com</A> . (Not the price I bought them for) and you need two for each bag, one to let air in and one to let air out. I could run two bags off of one solenoid and thereby only needing 2 solenoids instead of 4, but I want individual control of each bag and this also eliminates air transfer from one bag to the other during cornering. So what do you think? Any suggestions?
