Here's about $170 worth of fittings and air line ... including a $30 air-lift auto-draining water trap and a $30 SMC check valve:

the tank has 4 3/8" ports and a drain. The top left is a Vair pressure switch to tell the compressor to turn on/off at 150psi and 180psi:

I'm running one supply line for everything, because the air shocks don't need their own 1/4" supply .. and then I only need one check valve:

I wanted to keep the interior "stock" looking ... so I'm mounting all the gauges/switches inside the glove box:

Next time I'm under the car I will change that red fuel vent line .. and then the stock trunk panel will hide everything. I recently read the compressor should be higher than the tank, so I should fix that someday.

It drives way better with the front bags on separate air lines. 57psi in the front seems like the best ride between too bouncy and too soft. And 100psi in the rear air shocks makes it feel way more solid when cornering.

We've been getting a lot of rain, so it's nice to be able raise the car up in a second:

I dont even like 710s, but I like this one. I always enjoy seeing pictures of it. And nice work on the air system. Any plans to bag the rear instead of just air shocks?

I would have to cut more of the floor under the fuel tank to fit a normal style 4 link on top of the axle. Just_Joel's 4 link is the only one I've seen that might fit. I don't plan on doing that much work. I like being able to go back to stock-ish, but I might try to raise the leaf spring hangers someday.

For now I'm going to try 4" steel blocks from DJM suspension on Summit .. they have a pretty serious angle, it's 3.75" on one side and 4" on the other. Probably at least 4 degrees:

I took a piece of steel tube and enlarged the top pin, but I intentionally moved it over about 5mm, because most solid axle Datsuns seem to have the left rear wheel sticking out 10mm farther than the right side:

I flipped the second from smallest leaf, under a 510 wagon's smallest leaf ... and held it together with a 80mm allen bolt and longer than stock spacer to center the blocks:

I have no idea if any of this is safe ... so don't try this at home ... :lol: ... I had to trim this hose bushing after this pic:
