My guy gets all his stuff from the states. Look up accuair.

Are you relocating your rear shocks? you know you have to right? Otherwise it wont lay near as low with an integrated shock.

Also u'll need a 200psi system. 150 wont cut it on the front end - only can fit little 5 inch bags in the front - lots of pressure needed to get them up.

Do the Viair 400c's fill up to 200psi? do you control the pressure with a pressure switch to turn them off or does the accuair management do that?

accuair system has settings for 100 / 150 / 200 psi in the computer. My compressors seem to do the job pretty well. Only on for about 2 mins and they take it from nothing to 200psi. Dont know exactly what my compressors are but they are probly the Viair ones.

As for pics of the rear end - ill take some next time i have it out.
