Complete Ridetech Air Ride Kit

Trying to clear out vehicles and parts, so I will see who is interested in this kit. It is on my 79, but I can't seem to move it as a roller, so I will see if I can sell the air ride.

It is a RideTech kit listed for 91-96 Caprice/Impala. Zero miles on it. The car has just been sitting. Digital height contoller with 2 400C Viair compressors, and the Big Red valves. 2600 bags and cups up front, with the sleeve bags for the rear. It has the included shocks on the rear, but I have QA1s for up front I will throw in. I even have the key fob to remote control it too. It is all installed in the car, I will remove it if someone wants to purchase it.

$1600 free shipping.

Great winter project for you.

The basic kit with 1 compressor and analog gauges and paddle valves is $2100 online.

Does this setup allow the car to lay out? Any pictures of the setup?

It is a couple inches from on the ground. I think RideTech makes it that way. I think I have a few pictures of pieces installed on the car, but nothing before it was installed.

There was a topic on here before the last crash.....I will see if I can find those pictures again.

How much frame cutting does it require and how is tire clearence with the shock mounted that way on the front?
how much down time do you need to install?
do you have an air tank?
What kit number was it or did you piece it together?

You just need to clearance the top of the spring pocket up front. That's the only cutting.

No clearance issue with the shock at all like that.

For everything installed, I would say a weekend.

There is a tank....it fit between the wheelwells in the back. It's big....15 gallon I think?

I'm on ky phone right now, I will look up the part numbers in the morning when I'm stopped.

What are the rear shocks?
I know very little about air ride. Just basics.
4 valves does that make each corner independent?
Are there internal bump stops?
Would you be interested in selling just stuff for the rear? Like compressor,bags and shocks?

The rears are the Monroes that come with the kit. 4 valves IS individual corner control. Yes, the bags all have bumpstops in them.

I'm not going to break the kit up.
