I've been going through this forum and I have to admit, there's a lot of info here!

I've noticed that you can mod any car here with an air suspension, so I'm also guessing you can mod a Celica! :biggrin: I decided on an air suspension, since the Celica doesn't have much room for batteries of a hydraulic system.

I just want to mod the car so that it can go up and down on all fours. I'd like to lower my ride (everyone on my Celica forum is telling me to do so :biggrin: ), but living in Toronto, Ontario poses some road hazards.....Pot holes and pretty big ones. I hit one and it scratched my plastic guards at stock height.

I'm just looking to see what I'm getting myself into. I've looked at the kits and separate components. I'm thinking a modest compressor (no idea on size), tank (no idea on volume, guessing maybe 8 gallon?), valves, hoses (1/2" for fine control) and if possible a control that I can have some presets and fine tuning (Is this possible?). If I can, I'd like to lower the car to about 1 1/2" off the ground and keep stock height as the maximum (Sidewalks are also a killer!)

Please excuse the long post, and thanking for taking the time to look!

Airstruts in the front and bags in the back, quite an easy install and there are a few people making stuff for them. Steer away from the small air cylinders that are around as they will ride shit. Go the airbag struts in the front as it will ride better and lift at a lower psi

Strut bag doesn't lay you lower at all brother so i had to break it up to you, you can talk to juicedgrandam on this site he will tell you.. You can get more lift outta your suspension with hydraulic cylidner and never worry about popping a bag or a pot hole issuses.....

i think you're full of shit..

of course I could make a truck lift as high with bags as cylinders could, it's all in the design

and youre plain stupid if you think bags only lift you to stock height...

case in point..

yea usually with a puddle of hydraulic fluid in the trunk to go with that lift, you can get triple convulated bags for more lift, air bags are still a new thing, don't worry, people will be hitting back bumper soon enough with air, or have they already? :biggrin:

believe me you little fag, my car is up as high as it will mechanically go, without making major alterations to the frame itself...

the front cannot get any higher because the control arm hits the frame, and in the back, any higher would smash the driveshaft into the frame..

so when you actually have a car, come back and talk shit then homo..
