No more Photoshoppin' the car to lower my car anymore! As of last night, I now have an Air Lift Company EasyStreet Generation II B-Body air ride kit.

I know to some old school air riders, Air Lift Company hasn't been the first kit wouldn't chosen. They've had a bad rep in the past however they've totally redesigned their bags, brackets and use a very quality valve and compressor.

The install went fairly easily. The front shocks didn't compress enough so we went with different front shocks and kept my Bilstein rear shocks. I cut the exhaust off right in front of the rear wheels. Otherwise I would have had to fool with getting the pipes over th axle.

I am surprised how fast the 3/8" valves and " lines get this boat in the air. It comes with a quality compressor, but at horsepower, it lacks in power. Lift the front once and on it goes.

Side-to-side isn't bad with the Hotchkis rear swaybar. Car sits as low as I wanted it without dragging frame. I wanna be able to drive in case something blows.

Anyway, thanks to all that post in this section. My questions and searches have given me a lot of good info. Thanks to Tom Frederico for helping me get this kit and thanks to the folks at Air Lift for the assistance. And thanks to the boys at Lowcos Customs Hydraulics in my hometown, Spokane Washington, for a great install.

Your caddy looks very good! So slick!

Nice pics I have to add. Did you edit out the sun a little? Those pictures look too good!

I still see you photoshopping out the bumper bolts.

BTW, I love that chrome molding that runs on the QR and foward. It really makes the car when you look at it from the back.
