Air bag build on a VW MK5 Rabbit

Well this build was a little outside the box, at least the tank was. The tank was mounted underneath the car where the factory muffler would have gone. This was done by fabricating aluminum strapping to hold the 2.5 gallon air tank in place. Everything else was mounted in the spare wheel well allowing full use of the cargo area in a very stealth mode.
The airbag system was a full Airlift bag set-up including the front front struts, rear bags, rear shocks, management and valves. It was powered with dual Viair 400c compressors and a Viair 2.5 gallon tank.




  1. wow, amazing work as usual drew!

  2. Do the compressors go on every time it's aired out?
