Not having a bolt on kit available I decided to use Air Lift’s “Short Bellow-Over Universal strut Kit #75562″ for the front and their “Long Sleeve-Over Universal Strut Kit #75567
” for the rear. To top it off we used Air Lift’s Digital AutoPilot, for the air Management kit #27639.
Well yes, actually they do. It seems not to many people know this. When I was a shop owner I was asked plenty of times to put air suspension on cars where no bolt-on kit was available. After turning away so much business I needed to find a solution. Air Lift Company was my answer.
They have a full line of universal struts, fronts and rears. Sleeves and Bellows, also different lengths and valving. With all the different options, the sky’s the limit on available applications. No more need to turn customers away when you have a kit for everyone.
Well, last fall I was asked to fit a Lexus LS460 for E Shift Performance, located in Cliffwood Beach, NJ.
I know it might seem like a tough job building custom struts, but it’s not. A lot of shops have the ability to do some pretty basic fab work and that is all you need to build a custom air kit. Having the stock suspension in hand makes it even easier. All you are doing is building an exact replica of the upper and lower mounts. Then taking measurement’s of the suspension travel. Once in hand a very straight forward build.
I hope this little bit of info will help steer you in the right direction when doing your next custom build. Shop owner’s and builder’s don’t lose out on a job when you can contact Air Lift and get everything needed. From start to finish, they are there for any air suspension needs.
