Default Airbags on f150

Currently I am working on a airbag setup for my orange f150. I will have a tut soon but so far I have done a bodydrop and built the airbags for it I just need to build the steering arm for it. Does anyone have any ideas for maybe a mini air compressor or any ideas at all?

First off, wrong section.

Second, this thread is absolutely worthless without pictures. I could come on here and say I'm working on an airbag system too, but something to this extremity really needs pictures for people to believe it for one, and two to talk about it and actually enjoy it.

Nothing at this scale would work as an onboard pump.. Unless you were to gut a pnuematic system from the technic legos.. But you'd have to use an outside tank. Valves would be a whole 'nother mess of beans..

I too was working on that, the servo drop and lift, but the failed. Spent nearly $30. on micro servos, the biggest waste of my money. I returned the servos after I couldnt figure out how to mount them correctly.

Welcome to the forum. Everybody posts in the wrong section when there new (well some people do). Yea, pictures would help alot.

If you guys pay attention to other forums, I have a project going on this.

If I can find time to sit down and fabricate it, it will work and still drive.

Being low is one thing, that's easy. The real trick is the suspension setup that truck has planned...

Servos, but it was a simple setup that required a major body lift.
