Air Suspension


About Air Suspension

Air Suspension typically replaces the OEM Spring and Shock or aftermarket coilover setup with an air bag and a coilover. The air bags can be inflated for full ride height, or deflated to lower the car to achieve that stanced/caricature look. The stanced look originally reserved for the Euro/VAGS is now commonly seen in the Jap car scene with Liberty Walk and Rocket Bunny, slamming their cars to the ground for serious visual impact. A lot of purists dislike air suspension for a track car, however, the majority of cars with air suspension are show cars, with the occasional track day under its belt.

Components of Air Suspension Systems

Air suspension systems consist of several key components that work together to provide adjustable suspension control:

  • Air Bags: These replace traditional springs and provide the primary support for the vehicle’s chassis, allowing for adjustments in ride height.
  • Air Tank: Stores compressed air supplied by the compressor and feeds it to the air bags as needed.
  • Air Lines: These hoses carry compressed air from the air tank to the air bags.
  • Compressor: This component compresses air and fills the air tank. It is the powerhouse of the air suspension system.
  • Controller: Allows the driver to adjust the ride height of the car, often with presets for different heights based on driving conditions or preferences.

Popular Air Suspension Brands

  • Air Ride: Known for their robust systems that cater to a wide range of vehicles and preferences.
