In the 1970s the art of hydraulics was still in its "infancy". Everything was a process of trial and error, and people used to drive these cars daily. For a Low Rider, it was usually their only mean of transportation. Cars didn't last long after the abuse the Low Riders would put them trough, and at the junk yard you would find some cars with nice bodies, but with their frames destroyed. Back in the 1970s cars were inexpensive, and if you broke something you just got another car and started work on the new ride.
