Hydros are illegal in all aus states, full stop. You cannot get hydros engineered. Airbags... Restrictor sleeves...Concorde, do you have anymore info on these? Ive got a tank, compressor, lines, etc that i bought off ebay and havent been able to find anything at all on installing bags in the front...

its a custom made sleeve that just goes between the bag and the A-arm to stop the bag from expanding too far when it depressurised and compresses.

because hydros can malefunction and send your car flying through the air... imagine going around a corner or better yet, down the freeway, and have the front right malfunction when its fully compressed, boom, launch you through the air... funsies

Alot of it is to do with the 10 batteries in your boot and high pressure hydrollic lines. Anyone here who has worked with hydollic lines knows they can be pretty dangerous if not looked after
