Call me crazy, but I've been wondering about the possibility of hydraulics on my car [img]5.gif[/img]. I can't think of anything cooler than having a car that can bounce to music
Has anyone ever seen it done to a 91-96 B-Body?

Look up 1995SSLOWRIDER on this forum (think that's Moe's screen name). Moe has a 95 DCM with a ton of mods, including Hydraulics.

BTW, if you got your ISSCA magazine you'd already know this

I've seen 93-96 Fleetwoods get up around the 40 Inch mark if not higher. They do Hydros in the D bodies all the time. The B's would be no different. There are quite a few things you need to consider though. Do you want to hop or dance? Do you want 3 wheel? How many pumps, batteries, etc... Hydros arn't as simple as you might think. They are very cool and a well built system can last for a long time. They do require a good amount of maintnece and you have to charge Batteries a lot. Check thisout. This is a good forum if you're into low lows.

I get Lowrider every month... mainly to look for B-bodies and to admire the lowrider girls . Fleetwoods have started to become popular. I've only seen 1 Roadmaster ever, and it was in the June 2002 issue... it's violet and had 13" wire wheels that stick out beyond the skirts in the back... [img].gif[/img].

Ed, I will be subscribing to ISSCA as soon as I have $40 to spare . This accident I got into yesterday put me out of that... grr [img]1.gif[/img]. See you at the CruiSSe next weekend!

i've seen a b-body with hydros. it has new york plates, its a 91-92 and was in my area a couple of times. it was at a car show in the summer, and i saw it one weekend on the strip. it looks really cool. the interior was stock, but the paint and hydros were nice.

Air Ride is always a nice touch as well.
I'd do it if I could afford it.
But I can't. So I'll stay BIG and FAT!!!!!&lt;lol&gt;

This thread remined me of something I read in the newspaper a couple of days ago in the police blotter section. Doesn't mention what kind of car, interesting read though. [img]5.gif[/img]

Reckless Driving A 21-year-old man was driving south on McCreey Avenue near Poco Lane at 6:50 p.m. April 11 when his car burst into flames. An investigation revealed that the man had activated hydraulics to make his car jump, and this caused a gasoline tank in his trunk to leak. The gasoline fumes came into contact with live battery cables and caused the explosion. The man's 2-year-old and 4-year-old children were unrestrained in the back seat of the car but were not hurt. The had minor burns on one hand. He was cited for reckless driving and child seat violations.

A case can be made for the coolness of hydraulics. The vehicle was in an unsafe condition with gasoline and cables, stupidity maybe. But the whole unrestrained children thing is not cool no matter how you look at it. It could have been a lot worse.

Hydraulics are not the cause of this accident-a backyard amateur is to blame. Hydraulics are verry complicated-but can be installed in b bodies-i sell the kits @ wholesale prices and can hook anyone up....e-mail me if interested in a setup.
