Thanks for the comments🙂
These photos are parked height, bags deflated, so not really driveable since the back tyres are about 2mm from touching the arches. I will run it about 30mm higher in the front and 10mm higher in the back so it’s level which works out to be 5.5bar in the front bags and 2.5bar in the rears. Could easy be higher but I prefer the low look. Slightly lower than it was with the -60mm springs.
The front bumpstops have to be cut away to get the bags to sit in. The bags are a piece of piss to fit, one bolt up through front wishbone into the middle of the bag and the top just sits in the recess the old spring sat in, although I’d prefer if they were fixed so will do something with that next. Rears just bolt in from the bottom again with a large machined washer on the bottom of the axle to keep the bag central, again no fixing at the top, they locate themselves when you pump them up. Routing the pipes and figuring out the management was the biggest pain.
The kit came from on air ride system, a company in Croatia. I found them on Instagram. Management is very basic with 4 valves, 2 inflate (front and rear) and 2 dump. 2 switches in the centre console and a digital dual pressure gauge in the dash but it just took me ages to figure it out having had no experience with air suspension before. I do have a remote as well which I’ll maybe wire in sometime. Ideally I’d like to get the Airlift 3p management, so much more advanced than this with preset heights, phone app etc but it’s so expensive....maybe some day!
First I had it out for a run after fitting it all was yesterday, I was quite worried it would be bouncy and soft but it’s quite the opposite, a fair bit harder then the spax springs I had fitted before.
Has anyone figured out how to delete old photos on the forum yet?? I do have plenty of photos of the fitting but my attachments now is 99%😫
You’ll get your clearance just by pumping up the bags. I no longer have to use blocks of wood to get on the 2 post ramp, just pump her to full height and swing the arms in.
Back seats are still standard. They’re in good nick apart from a bit of sun bleaching going on at the top. I have enough new material to do them so they will be on next year’s list of jobs!
