    Hey FlapJack,

    Care to share where you got the $10 solenoid valves from? The best I can find is about $125 a piece.

    That is 1/4" N/C. for those reading that dont know what that means. 1/4 is the side of the hole the air passes through and N/c stand for Naturally closed. You can buy them so they are stuck open or closed when power isnt applied. Not sure how you could adapt a N/O to air bag systems but N/c is generally what you want. The most common size of holes range from 1/4, 3/8, and 1/2. The bigger the holes the faster the air slams in and out of the bags. I want slow up and slow down so I am running 1/4 valves and 1/4 hose and will probably still use an air slow down plug on the out valve.

    The link I attached above is $12 something, I found them as cheap as $7 or $8 but id rather pay the extra $4 to have them come from that guy in California vs getting them from China.

    This isnt the set i used but i wish i would have. Way more compact than individual valves. I did use 1/2" though and it works good. Wich ever way you go flap jack, its goin to be cool!

    Holy crap guys, big THANKS!!!!

    I priced out a similar valve manifold to lowbudget50's ebay link, and the shop wanted $1100 Canadian! It would have been nice if they at least included a kiss for me after trying to screw me....lol. EBAY HERE I COME. I plan to get the 3/8" ports, but will probably go with 1/4" tubing on the exhaust valve to slow down the air flow exiting the air bag slightly so it doesn't slam onto the ground.

    Sounds good brother let me know how it goes! Im waiting for my bags to show up, the valve to show up and I spent $80 at a local bulk bolt store where you get bolts nuts and washers by the pound. I am getting really antsy!!

    I looked at these and maybe down the road I will run one. for now $40 for valve to just set it up for front and rear will be fine by me. I Rather get it running and fix the bug later than keep staring at it waiting for my lotto numbers to be called.
