i'm thinking about putting hydraulics on my car.

I really don't want my car to bounce (off the ground up and down)

i have 19s on my car and definitely don't wanna bend my rims. I woiuld like a conservative hydraulic assembly. Where would i get this? How much is an estimated cost?

I would rather have air cylinders/pistons than hydro's........you can get an average air ride kit for like a lil over a grand:)

it's just like hydraulics except it's not hydraulic......instead of having a hydraulic cylinder to lift the car up and down you have this
which just like hydro's when you hit a switch it fills up with air and you go up and you hit another and it lets the air out and you go down you can different size hoses and fittings depending on how fast you want them to go up and down:)

for under a G pretty much anybody will tell u ur not gonna get anything good... From what i know ride quality especailly if ur not gonna get a nice kit isn't gonna be anywhere near a comptech or tein drop... ur not gonna be abel to drive real fast especially around coners and such. Cylinders are for people who want to show their cars generally speakin.
