      Hey guys, Finishing up my air ride, need advice. just picked up a 75 Mercedes 240d. I have slam specialties re6 bags in the rear. And the fronts were completed before I got it. I've yet to order my compressor but Iam gonna go with the viair 400c.
      Now here's my question. When I naught the car, the previous owner included a HUGE air tank. I'd say it's probably a 20-30gal tank. Now my friend says I should go with this tank so my compressors don't kick on all the time. But I don't seemmany people running more then a 6 gallon tank. I feel that it could burn my compressor out for letting it run that long to fill this tank. So what do you guys think? Get a 6-10gallon tank or stay with the one I got?

      That would take forever to fill with one 400c. Everyone I know runs a 5 gallon including myself. Either get more/bigger compressors or a smaller tank
