What I have is a Slam Air helper bag setup and I would like a simple setup to control the air. I'm thinking a average compressor w/ a small tank and some slow valves would be fine. I'd like a couple guages (tank and bags.) I just would like some easy adjustability when I need it once in a while. I'll probably run some small air horn off of it someday, that's it. What would ya'll recomend. I'm a static guy so any advice is apreciated.

I would just get a small 3 gallon and small viar compressor. You could get away just useing 2 valves on it so that will save some $$. Prolly with all the parts an line an fittings your lookin around 300-350$

use a 3 gallon tanks and small ViAir compressor like said above. Instead of valves, i would my a manual paddle valve w/gauge like this.

Here is what i had for my helper bag setup, i never installed, i ended up selling it all locally.

Would it be better to set them up independantly so that the air won't go from bag to bag and cause more body roll? Or will it make much difference if they are tee'd together?

Nick, how do you like the viair kit?

it would take some modification, a paddle switch, and a few fittings. other than that i like it. since i have a 4-link now, of course i want valves and more control. but for you, i think it would be perfect.

i think if you put valves on the bags. it might be too fast for the leaf springs.
