Cant be Illegal. Or if it is who is gonna enforce that anyhow.
Your chassis has been used by so many lowriders that there has to be a
kit or something for what you want to do. I wish I could be of more help but maybe check out a lowrider forum.

technically not legal... but its done all the time. It must be tested by DOT and say "DOT" on it to be legal, but as long as you do it right its perfectly safe. Hydraulic shops just don't want to take on the liability.

Unless it has been modified by a previous owner, your Monte will have traditional 45 degree flared fittings, not the 37 degree military-type fittings (AN or "Army/Navy"). It should be inch- not metric- but you need to verify this first hand to be sure.

You need to find a good site that sells hydraulic fittings and adapters, etc. and sit down and figure out what it is that you need.

A working knowledge of tubing, thread, fitting sizes and designations will be needed and might be outside the scope of this thread.

Take a look HERE and see if you see anything that is helpful.
