Come take a ride in my Citroen DS21. Full hydraulics,long before people thought that was cool.
Nothing like sitting at a light and having somebody look over at this wackomobile and hitting the lever that drops the car straight to the pavement. And the car rides like a dream, BTW
Ah thats cool. How are they to drive. Thats a car that I have never seen up close. I knew they had an adjustable suspention but I didnt know they had full hydros, Cool. What year do you have?

I ordered air suspension and I'm awaiting the rest of it to get here....takes a while to get to Tokyo when the idiots ship it by boat! Mine has 10 switches 1 tank and 4 fast valves with cylinders all for a grand! It does operate fast because of the valves and the best compressor available. As for ride it is comparable closely to stock if you get a good set up. I'll have pics of mine by mid June..have to go on a business trip. I've rode in many cars with air suspension and they all were great. Go for it!! And you don't need all those da*n batterys like hydrualics plus its alot cleaner..ever seen a car that busted a hydraulic line?? Here's the link to where I bought mine.. http://www.strictlymodified.com/ Ask for Shannon and tell him Jason from Tokyo told you about him..he'll hook you up!! Hope this helped.

I know people that have both hydraulics and air bags.... Hydraulics have been known to be very high maintainence but you can get a killer ride using accumulators.. Whereas Airbags are more maintainence friendly(even if something does go bad your dealing with air and not nasty hydraulic fliud) and the ride is no worse than ground controls and koni's... Also one other thing is that hydraulics are a quite a bit faster going up and down than airbags unless you spend alot of money on a quick air-bag set-up, all the time i see people waiting on their compressor to "recharge" to get their rides back up... so weigh out the options yourself but either way don't skimp because you'll be kicking yourself in the ass down the road.... do it right.

n2Orbit93, the quickness your talking about is what I'm getting it is guaranteed to work like hydros. But my man in Dayton is great with prices. Oh and as Legend owners we have to use air cylinders..airbags won't work on a legend or mosty hondas/acuras for that matter. And there is no waiting with this new set up, the air systems have come along way and now we have the added advantage of using Nitrogen to rapidly inflate the cylinder if there is a problem with the compressor or valves...so a tow truck isn't nessecery. Also not a bunch of batteries. My compressor can fill a five gallon in 30 seconds and only a few pounds of air are needed to get a cylinder up. I think you might have seen some peeps with the OG systems or low dollar systems.

How much modification would be necessary or would that kit be direct bolt-up??? And how much can you get that kit for??? Is it hard to install for a DIYourselfer??

Comfortable ride?

I was talking to a guy at a car show that had an air suspension, he said that the ride was bad. BUt, you're saying that the ride feels close to stock?? I want an air suspension but the only thing holding me back is the ride quality . . .
