the fronts can be done, they need to install a restrictor sleeve around the bag so the top A-arm doesn't rub the bag when going up and down.

well according to DPI only air shock absorbers can be installed without needing any form of approval. To go a hydraulic setup id say it would be illegal without engineering...or being approved by a dpi vehicle inspector....fillout this link and see what they say.

DPi are useless idiots ;)

i rang them about a manual conversion, they said fill in that form, send it in, they will approve it or deny it, you can then do the mod and then get it checked.

i rang the pits office.

"just do it and bring it in, we will look at it and sign it off if its ok, 40 bucks"
