I have a customer who wants a decent air ride kit for his acura legend

I normally make everything myself... but for an acura might just by a kit for him...

Anyone have an acura with a good kit on it?

What kind of kits?

Thanks for the help..trying to save time and maximize profit and his enjoyability of the ride

i had good results with Blitzluft air cans and 1/2" electric valves. 4" cans in front, 3" cans in back, something like 8-10" stroke. faster than bags at same PSI and much more fun.

I would never do cans on a car unless the customer wants only cyls., but unfortunately the airlift struts haven't been very reliable for me either. The sleeve style bags don't work out that we'll for heavy cars. The sleeves will require a lot of pressure to lift and eventually work the crimps off the ends. If you feel the car is as light as an integra or civic or the customer will drive low your fine. The last accord I did was HEAVY and went through struts.
Phatz? Squeaky?
what do you think.

not a popular car, around here.  Cylinders is the only option I know of, I wouldnt want to go that route though.

What type of air accumulator are you guys using?
Even with accumulators, it will still ride like ass with Cylinders. Just use a small air bag with the ends fixed in some sort of cage, or a small 1 gallon air tank.
You ever heard of Canovers? They are some wacky japanese cylinder that uses an internal valving to give performanc and a better ride. Made to function like a self adjusting shock. In theory they are quite nice, but I can't give any first hand experience with them. I have only seen them used on TL's. I think they are pricey.
