Air Bagging a Honda SI

Bagging the Honda SI FA5 chassis was a little bit of a challenge in the fact that we wanted to make a near bolt in set-up for users to purchase with no major modification.
If you follow the pics close you can se what was modified and required to make this Honda get low.
Starting off with Airlift Universal adjustable dampening struts, the front was mocked up and built to get  the subframe on the ground.
The rear was brought down using a rear modified shorty D-Cup and UA air house II bags. With the lower nipple cut off and a cut out for the fitting the bottom bracket bolted in to place. The top portion was fitted using a short stud that would fit on the a hole drilled out to a 3/8' in the upper nipple.
The air suspension is managed by Accuair's E-Level with control bad and a 4 gallon Chrome Aluminum tank along with copper hard lines, dual Viair 400 compressors.

Air Bagging a Jeep SRT8 (Accuair E-Level)

Starting off with the front using Aero Power Sports for bag over coil applications, the front was paired up with BC coil overs w/ adjustable dampening. The rear set-up was brought down by using Universal Air Air House II bags with some small mounts to secure them in place. A pancake tank was mounted underneath the belly along with the management of the Accuair E-Level and dual 444 Viair compressors. The controller was the mounted in the center console next to the shifter for easy access.
