Air Lift

Over the New Year my Dad and I installed an Air Lift system. We used the Autopilot Digital Control system, which allows for maximum control over each wheel. The install was very straight forward but for us required a little more than just direct bolt on as said in Air Lifts directions. Overall it is a great system. The car handles and rides better than stock now. For install photos you can follow this link http://www.tridentautomotive.com/wescar/index.html

Also if you are in the Dallas, Fort Worth area and would like to have this installed on your Camaro or any other vehicle. Kwik Kar Lube & Tune off of Central Drive in Bedford, Texas is an Air Lift preferred dealer.

Very interesting.
So, can you adjust the height at each corner of the car independently? Or is it just an up or down (2 ride heights)?
Thanks for the story.

Bob

Yes each corner can be adjusted independently as much or as little as you like.

Any pictures of it as tall as you can go for reference? (Not that anyone would typically ride around with all four corners all the way up)

Not typically, but we've all been disgusted by the videos on here where they have to be taller than that to accommodate their 30s. Majizzle

If you look at the install photos on the link you will notice we welded the studs for the tank because it did not seem possible to run those bolts because of all the under carriage components.
