      ok, I updated the FAQ some.

      I want to make a list of the current manufacturers and their websites. so start compiling names and stuff in here for me.

      I need:
      companies with bolt on kits.

      *
      *
      *
      *

      also:
      good companies that sell just parts.
      *
      *
      *

      For what it's worth, I've had a very pleasant experience with Kevin at ACC. Very knowledgeable and seems to carry large cariety of higher end parts.

      This is for everyone.

      If you see any thread in here or make any thread in this forum, and you feel it should be in the DIY/FAQ and will be helpful to others, send me the link to it, and I will possibly add it.

      This could help cut down on some of the repeat threads that have been popping up recently.

      I was looking around a s10 forum and i ran up into this site. Its pretty cool and thought it might help folks. You put in your airtank size and other info and it gives you a calculated fill time.

      My take on rear brackets for mk4 firestone rear bags.
      rear setup came out $150 for two rear bags and another $30-40 for my own brackets.
      as of may 12 2010 they are on the customers daily car for 4 months,no issues.http://img580.imageshack.us/g/img7599y.jpg/

      Seeing as this is something I will be doing this spring, I have been looking for DIYs. Went through and found the source to this guys thread, and most of his pictures are still working

      I'll see what else I can dig up to possibly make this forum worth while again.
