Quotes I've gotten are $700 for 4 UAS bags with brackets, $2400 for the Accuair E-level, and around $1000 for labor. I know the Accuair is not needed, but it's a pretty cool system. All I want it for is to drive low, park really low, and lift when needed. I wanna do it once and do it ride. It's my daily so no shortcuts.

I agree. Doing a project like this there should be no short cuts.

yep, remember, you get what you pay for.

and manual air? does that mean you'll be on the side of the road with a bicycle pump?

Default Re: Air Ride

People think Accuair e-level is a waste of money, but it's the best air management out there. One, it's completely automatic. It adjusts your height to the setpoint taking into account the weight load of your car. You have a car full of passengers? It'll adjust the car to the same height as if there are no passengers. Two, it's a height based system. People who run aggressive wheel setups have their car set how they want to drive it. Because the system uses height sensors, their car will always be at the height they want, regardless of air temperature or PSI.

I guess if you don't care for precision of car height while driving and just want to be able to lower and lift, then a manual or pressure based management might be okay for you. But for people like Hero and I who run pretty aggressive wheel setups and want/need precise heights, e-level is a no brainer.
