I was looking for an easy and quick way to firm up the tired rear springs on my Stage 1 Buick convertible. The AirLlift 1000 kit fit the bill perfectly. Pretty easy to install, once I figured out the trick to getting them inside the springs. I installed them with separate air lines so i can preload the right side for trips to the dragstrip. I normally run them at 5-7 pounds of pressure, which gives me exactly the lift and firmness I wanted. I had the occasion for me and three of my friends (all big guys, at least 1000 pounds combined) in the car for a 100 mile road trip last week, so pumped up the pressure to about 12 pounds and the car rode great. About the only thing I don't like about them is that with anything more than 8-10 pounds in the air bags, and with just me in the car, is very 'bouncy'.
