Part 19: Suspension II
Shockwaves have arrived. I purchased a pair of SKW9000 Shockwaves for the rear and a set of SKW1000 Shockwaves for the front. The cost of this system is very exotic so I'll purchase the rest of the system later.
I welded on the upper crossmember for the rear Shockwave, cut two notches in the crossmember, and welded in round stock for the bolt stud, added corner gussets and bolted on the rear 9000 Shockwaves to see how they look.
I ordered the 4-way Ride Pro ARC 4000 system to complete the air ride suspension, it should be here in 2 weeks. The kit allows for 4 corner control and consists of the 315 compressor, control panel, wiring harness, 4 solenoids, 2 gallon tank, and 60' of airline and fittings. This system offers back to front, side to side, wheel to wheel control and has a 4 to 5 second rise time. The kit also comes with the RidePro E computer, which when set, will raise the car to a preset ride height when the car is started. It will also monitor air pressure to all 4 corners and allows visual monitoring with 4 analog gauges. The system will maintain even pressure to all 4 corners during adverse driving conditions and cornering.
