Get ready to experience the world's first automatic portable compressors: the Viair 400P-Automatic (2.54 cfm, 33-percent duty cycle) and 450P-Automatic (1.66 cfm, 100-percent duty cycle). These new automatic portable compressors offer automatic shutoff to simplify tire filling in a revolutionary way. Rather than rushing from the tire back to the compressor to shut it off, all you'll have to do is let the compressor run. The automatic function of the 400P-Automatic will turn the unit on and off for you, while you move from tire to tire. This is especially useful for applications where compressor speed and long run time are desirable. Both units are capable of 150-psi maximum working pressure and come with their own gas-station-style tire-inflation gun with high-performance air-pressure gauge on board. Additionally, the 400P-Automatic and 450P-Automatic portables come with heavy-duty battery-connection cables, an inflation tips kit, heavy-duty sand tray with rubber overmold, and a heavy-duty storage bag for added portability.

How many times have you seen an incredible suspension system fail because of a weak point, or should we say joint? CST has just released a race-quality ball joint for prerunner, lifted-truck, and light race-vehicle applications. The CST Pro-Joint's durable design is ideal for dual-shock upper-control-arm applications. High-strength materials, extreme pivot-angle capability, and sealed design make the Pro-Joint superior to uniballs.
Some of the features include a standard Moog bolt pattern, a heat-treated 4340 pin with a true spherical ball, a 4140 high-misalignment housing and top plate, a replaceable Delrin wear bushing, and a custom-molded rubber grease bolt.
