Re: Build Time (Rat4Life)

Yep had quite i few problems with them sticking and leaking im from the uk and last winter the vavles were sticking all the time and it wasnt really that cold compared to the winter weather you guys get. I thought id go for manual valves this time so if 1 fails(which ive yet to hear) its just a case replacing it

I decided 2 go 4 aerosport bags up front maybe 1 day ill have bagyards http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

i guess after buying new coilovers it makes sense to go with aerosports, otherwise if you didn't buy new coils bagyards would be the the right solution.

Re: (Rat4Life)

Kinda wish i went with bagyards
but u live and u learn, also needed new rear struts and something 2 roll around on while i waited 4 the new kit so made sense in some ways. The coils im running r called AP there a new line of coils just out made in the same factory as kw http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Also picked up my new cage the other day gunna b gettin rid of the back seats so hopefully should look good with the air setup n cage
