Default eg air cylinders

Just wondering what air cylinders you guys are using on the eg's. I went to airbagit.com and found a front kit for 299. All I want is to be able to adjust the front suspension. If anyone knows a cheap way about doing this with the air ride let me know.

noone at all has air ride. that baffles me. I hate coilovers. my car has lowering springs on it that are just too low. but the ride quality is not bad.

well I found some really cheap air cylinders off ebay and also on airbagit.com
you just have to buy the two switches and compressor, tank, accumulater (for a better quailty ride), and some fitting and hose. All in all it wouldnt be a bad investment for those pesky speedbumps and bumpy entrance ways into BK.

if your going air stick to a bag and strut. cans will give you a harsh ride and will ride terrible. my buddy thrw together a bag setup for his civic for around 1500.

Default Re: eg air cylinders

the only problem with the bag and strut( I.E. the new 3 barrel design) is that us with the eg chassis dont have any room for them. Ive seem them on a del sol before, which is pretty much the same suspension as the eg and the struts got hung up sometimes so they had to be welded some cockeye way. Im not really looking to do that. I want a little preoject that can be completed in a day at a shop. I do know if I get an accumulater it wouldnt be that bad. It give the air a little more space to compress therefore a little better ride,

1500 is way out of my range. Im looking to only do the front and just use it to get over the unavoidable **** they call roads down here in flo rida
