    Air Ride and Wheel Offset

    Hi All, for a while now Iíve been considering air ride for my whip, airlift and aucuair both seem to be legitimately good, although expensive.

    Expense aside Iím concerned about the size of the front air bag, looks much bigger that a coilover so Iím worried about my wheel fouling them.

    Anyone got any experience with fitment at all? Iíve searched various forums including Zilva with no success

    Got my setup from a swedish company - http://lowtoys.com/

    About £1200 for the kit but would still have to get a controller on top of that.

    I didnít know he had air ride! Cool, I shall ask him then.

    £1200 is a respectable amount for all that kit, what management will you go for? All in Iím looking at £2700 but thatís without import and installation

    https://accuair.com/airmanagementpro...oller-touchpad something like this eventually but to get it rolling then a simple manual setup like https://airride.co.uk/air-suspension...ay-controller/

    Sounds like a good plan! Didnít know you could use accurair with other systems! Maybe Iíll go manual to being with and then add the other bits later too
