always use a tank, you never want to try and fill bags with a compressor.
you need a compressor and a tank, and at least 2 valves, 3/8"s would suffice, maybe even 1/4" if you use 4 valves
you will need to fabricate link bars, cant use leaf springs and air ride, and you cant just bolt the bag to the axle and frame,

4 6" bags would work, although that is optimal i have seen setups where only 2 bags are used
id recommend slam specialties re-6s
you need switches, air valves are momentary so to hook it up to your key would burn out the solenoids in a few seconds
