Hey Khaadu,

I dont know much about these systems, or whether they are hydraulic or pneumatic etc etc, however i do know that sometimes you need to have close to 5-8 extra car batteries (in the trunk) when you have such a system (or one type of such a system) and thats becomes quite heavy on your car and wallet!

Hi
I think the mods that you are asking for are typical of Lowriders in the States. The lifting / dropping of the cars are controlled by Pneumatic systems , extra batteries, lowering the suspension coils and also using a Pneumatic controller to manage the moves to be made.

You can get lotsa info on lowriders by searching on google
