    Suspension Conversion Kit

    I thank you , I am favoring Arnott, they manufacture the parts . However they don't sell from the factory anymore, so its from summit racing and can cost more. If I go down from Akron, I can see what they want to sell me and I can say no on the spot. Let us know how the car handles and rides.

    I finally gave up on air ride unless I replace both air bags, both air struts, a comporessor and the air lines plus selonids (4). Otherwide a leak of air will run the compressor and wear it out. My struts and air bags have been sitting flat for over 4years. Do you guess the rubber may be old by now"
