LOL, your lucky I found this thread, I had a 91 Lincoln Towncar fully juiced with 3 pumps and 12 batteries, There are plenty of good Hydraulic kits cheap as hell, there were great kits 10 yrs ago when I had my car for mid $800 range, they should deff be cheaper now. Hydraulics are alot cheaper then airbags b/c basically they break all the time, leak oil all over the place, and outdated technology

To make the car jump, depends on how many batteries, LB springs your running, and what reinforcement you have under your car frame. To make the front end really hop you need a full stack of heavy duty coils in the front, 8-10" cylenders, a 2 pump setup with 6-8 batteries, and 14-16" cylenders in the rear. if your running 13x7 or 14x7 spokes, extend the A-Arms and deff reinforce the frame. If your looking to "3 wheel around corners", you need a rear chain bridge. With 2 pumps you can only put up a 3 wheel around corners, If your looking to sit in 3 wheel, park the car in 3 wheel etc, you need a 3 pump kit minimum. If your looking to hop the entire car off the ground, you need minimum 6 pumps, 14 batteries and a shyt load of custom fabrication on the frame

Why would you post this on chargerforums anyways lol?
