Post suspension

My 58'Impala has hydraulics fitted but as it's not on the road yet i'm wondering what sort of ride i'm going to get and whether the hydraulics are the best way to go.The stance is spot on but my knowledge on these sort of systems is basicly none existant.A friend of mine is considering fitting air ride suspension on his custom but like me he is relying on advice. Please help! route40hotrods@btopenworld.com

I have run hydros before and they ride bad. remember you can't compress a fluild. so you have zero suspension travel. Bags are nice I have found the simpler the system the less trouble you will have. any questions let me know

Hello Lou, thanks very much for the reply.The hydraulics on my 58' are new and unused so i may try and sell them and look into an air bag kit. Do you recommend any specific kit? Many thanks again.
