    If I get a full time job anytime soon, I'll be looking into selling my Integra and putting the money down on a 2000+ GMC Sierra / Chevrolet Silverado

    I hope to make it look something like this (just a rough idea of what I'd like it to look like):


    Really clean and simple, 20" rims on all four corners, and maybe I'll bag it (the one in the picture has a 5"/7" drop kit.)

    i don't know too much about those air-thingies...why not go with hydraulics? money, or is there another reason for peoples' preferences.

    hydrolics are more expensive (as far as i know) and are used for more extensive lifts and drops and bouncing. they also provide a terrible bouncy ride. best used for show cars

    air bags replace the springs and give a much better ride but you cant do as many "tricks" with them. they also a lot easier to install and dont require a bunch of extra batteries.

    well fr8 if your serious on seeing something im building, check out the alien nightowls attack superthread. im building a 91 toyota pickup. it will be similar to the old ride in some aspects but i intend to go much more wild with it.
    i sold the truck i previously mentioned in this thread, and for the time being i am rolling a stock 86' mazda 626 until the truck is done.

    hydraulics are actually pretty much the same price as a good bag setup(minus the batteries). you can get more straight lift out of hydros than bags, but bags can be setup to deliver massive lift if you are creative (cantilever setups etc.) hydros can (repeat CAN) ride very smoothly if set up properly and maintained in conjuntion with some accumulators. also bags and hydros require about the same amount of work to set up, the only thing i hate about hydros is all that oil that is running back and forth(oil doesnt come out of interior fabrics easily), and the fear of burning out pumps or that horrible sound of oil frothing up and going all over the ground. as far as tricks are concerned, a good bag setup can do just about anything a hydro setup can do (three wheel, hop, hit sides, etc.) all in all i find bags to be the better choice, but hydros have made huge popularity gains lately with all the new technology being put into them. its all a matter of opinion and style i guess.
