    Well i found that thread on Car Audio. It's by davidfre21 in his 02 Trans Am. Here it is and here are a few pictures from that thread that I'm using to form Ideas.



    I'm still debating on a place to put my tank for my air ride. I sent an e-mail to suicide doors about their pancake tank to see what size it is. I know a 5 gallon is ideal, but I might go with a 3 to be able to hide it.

    Well I did some measuring after driving around a bit tonight and it looks like I can fit a tank that is 25" x 11" in the bottom part of the t-top holders (smaller part). Then I could make a new sub box that was fiberglassed from the upper part of the t-top holders and the little cubby to the drivers side. According to Sub Thump there is .6 Ft^3 in the cubby.

    If I left it flat like it is now i might not have enough room, but If I angled the subs I could gain a little more(even tho I don't like that idea as much).

    Here is the tank I'm thinking which is:
    Length - 20.5"
    Diameter - 9.5"
    Height with legs - 11.5"


    If I were to bend the brackets over a little I think it'd be short enough and then I could use 90 degree elbows out of the tank.

    I think I need to find somewhere else to post some of this since it's getting away from carputers. . .

    I was refering to a wooden box that dropped in. It was shaped to go all the way to the top. It got about 3 cu. ft. I've also seen 2 18's in an infinate baffle setup, but that's pretty extreme.

    I've never seen this thread before. Looks neat.

    After reading it, I'm a little dissapointed. If he had utilized the cubby hole on the divers side you would again .6-.8 cu. ft. I'm not sure the small extra amount of space he gained is worth all the glass work.

    I'm thinking of cutting out the Lower T-top area in order to make it wider and deeper. The room is there, you just need to be brave. I may also cut out part of the frame rails as well. You can get even more width then.

    I forgot to read this post.

    Yeah, .6 is with a sub taking up .2. It's really .8, but in your case you may not be able to go all the way in or else you would not be able to remove it. The plastic panel can pop off, but there is still a ledge.

    Are You keeping the spare in the stock spot?

    Just post it in my F-body thread. I don't care.

    The top pic is a 3 cu. ft. wooden box.

    You can squeeze out more room by doing it like in the lower pic.

    I like how they did that second setup. You forgot the picture of the 2 18's in an infinite baffle setup

    I'm thinking that I'm going to scrap the spare tire and try to glass over there too to get another .6 or so ft^3. With glassing both sides i should gain at least 1.2 ft^3 plus the little from glassing. That should be more than I'll loose from giving up the bottom of the holders.



    I've been looking at shocks and I was wondering what your top picks would be to look at? What have you heard about KYB Shocks? Are the Bilsteins available again? I plan on getting on ls1 tomorrow and see what everyone thinks on there, but what they think may be a bit more than I need so i figured I'd ask you. I think i've pretty much figured out my list of air ride stuff I need and have been talking to my dad about how we're going to do everything. I think the only things we'll have to figure out is the front spacer pipe and the rear bag spacer.

    You want to see the 18's? Let me dig up the pics.

    The spare tire side is much larger due to no gas tank filler.

    For shocks, Bilstin HD's on the low end and Koni SA's if you can afford them.
    $419-$880

    I'm not familair with Bilstien supply problems.
    Sam shows to have them in stock, at least the SLP one's.
    Check his site:

    or call him Monday.

    Well I ordered these today to build off of. I'm going to use them first and might upgrade them after I get the air ride done. The main reason I bought them was because I wanted to be able to take off the stock ones and swap in my modified ones and vis versa if a bag fails.
