Auto Air ride management ??

I am currently using needle style guages and 4 rocker switches to adjust and monitor bag pressure. I am thinking of upgrading to a digital controller.

I would like to be able to set a specific air pressure and the controller would maintain that psi, even if perhaps there were a slow leak in the line. Is there anything like this available under a couple hundred bucks?

I would actually spend the extra money and get the best one available. But yes they are available, I can't think of any other than the Dakota Digital controller though.

If someone wanted to set a specific ride height and forget it with air suspension, you could use the leveler valve from a semi tractor air ride cab.

Mine on my truck looks like it would be very easy to adapt to something else, and you could also make it adjustable with little or no real effort.

I don't know about the axle suspension valves, they are quite a bit larger, but the cab leveler uses a 1/4 inch air line. The air line size wouldn't be an issue for someone that doesn't want to mess around with it very much, as in dropping it to park, or hopping.
