    Does anyone run a Hydraulic Lift System on their suspension?

    For reference: http://www.kw-suspension.com/us/kw_hls.php

    Does anyone know of a company who manufactures a system that is suited to a Z32?

    Has anyone installed a Hydraulic Lift System on their coilovers as a bolt on? If so, then what type of coilover is being used?

    Lastly, if you have experience with them then is the height gain useful/adequate for obstacle clearance?

    I was thinking more along the lines of a hydraulic bolt on to existing coilovers, if you check the bottom of the linked page in OP you'll see what I mean.

    I just found this thread from Benny C looking for basically the same thing: http://www.aus300zx.com/forum/showthread.php?t=282206 . I chuckled because it reads like Benny was once a n00b. :D

    If you're reading, Benny, did you ever find what you were looking for?

    EDIT: Just found these - http://www.zshop.ca/parts/z32-ksport-airtech-kit/ but do NOT want.

    Everyone starts out as a noob, then if they are interested enough to learn, They then start to believe, and then the fish will come, and knowledge devours your bowels, like Elton John singing candle in the wind.

    When i used to play with the mini trucking scene, there were a few products available that can assist in on the fly additional height adjustment. For the trucks that needed that extra little assistance it was fine, a costly way around achieving a desired look, but was functional.

    Word has it though that the air bag adjustable type, werent very nice to drive spiritedly with as it always gave a squirmish feedback to the driver. As good as bags are, they still flex when stressed, and this as a result hinder the positive feedback one would prefer to experience.

    There is a product nicknamed "cans" that are electrically adjustable. Would have to look at them again but there may be an option available that can be adapted to your current coilovers, that will give a definitive change and not be squirmish under stress.

    ROADIE, very old technology ... !!!!

    check out a 1973 Citroen Parisienne ... on the go suspension was ultra luxuriously comfortable and super adjustable .. maybe a bit soft for a sports performance vehicle .. lol ... ran a fleet of them in Paris (do not ask about maintenance costs !!!)

    so, nick off to a French vehicle wrecking yard and pick up the original ... am sure there are heaps of these yards around your area ... or just nick off on a quick trip to gay Paris.
