Hey guys my names Andy and was keen to introduce myself and my vehicle :), I'm from New Zealand but have heard heaps about Silvia Club NSW

Anyhow thought this might be of interest to people who suffered through similar problems of smashing their front bumper off when your cars just to low, in the first pic I cracked it in half and decided I wanted to avoid that happening again but I didn't to lose the nice ride height..

I decided to try out the new D2 air suspension kit in my vehicle as I had heard so much about it overseas! Was a fun process to do and surprisingly we had this fitted in probably within 2 nights after work (approx 8 hours, give or take.) It is a complete BOLT IN kit, so didn't require any welding at all or cutting! Anyhow check out the pictures below.

- Front lip cracked! I hate it when this happens!

- AZ Air Compressor that comes with the Air Suspension kit

Image
- D2 Control Box for all the air lines

Image
- Air tank fits perfectly behind the rear seats

Image
- Hooking up of all the air lines

Image
- Another step of us hooking up the air tank and the compressor lines

- Before we put in the air shocks

Image
- Rear Air shocks fitted and ready to go :)

Image
- Front Air shocks fitted and ready to go :)

Image
- Works first time, dropped it of the stands and pressed the buttons and up and down she goes!

- Picture of the car on the "low setting"

Overall it was quite a fun experience to see how it would turn out! Having wireless remotes makes it even better, I can actually get up my drive way at home no worries, and still drive around on a great ride height.

Surprisingly these are a really comfortable ride, despite what the custom air bag set ups in vehicles that make them horrible to drive in, this drives pretty much like a vehicle with coilovers in so its a firm ride but depending on how much air you chuck into the air bags will make the ride smoother still!

Anyhow thought ill just share this, something a bit different!


BTW - ill have a video up shortly which is really cool to show how it all works :)

Low setting looks good. How much did it set you back?
