I'm currently looking for an installer to do my air suspension. I'm going with the airrex over the airrunner. From talking to people I was told both are quality air struts. The airrunner uses kyb shocks and airrex seems more performance based. Here is a link to the airrunner setups. This is the basic setup. This is with the accuair elevel. I decided to go with accuair elevel with 2 air zenith ob2 compressors. Here is a site you can go to and get in contact with them for help with your setup. They can get you what you want.

I have also been doing my research because its one of my next mods. So far I'm liking the AirRex all in one box kit that goes for 5k ordered and about $600 to install. All the other Accords around my area are using airlift performance which is $4,500 installed w/ the V2 controller. Im more torn between these 2 then the rest. AirRex is a complete bolt on with better shock absorbers and more advanced damping characteristics. Proprietary triple seal air springs. And AirREX offers a kit for the 2013+ Accord while Airlift will need to be created to work on the car. here are some Accords in my area.

Contact Jorge_Airrex on instagram if you want free install. I think he only install Airrex. His free promo/event is ending soon. Not sure when, i am guessing end of march.

He had 2010 Bagged Coupe. He is located in Florida

Didn't know if you got your answer or not yet, but I've recently bagged my car using AirRex Suspension, but Airlift Autopilot V2 management. I love it. The quality of AirRex's struts are top notch. Definitely worth the buy if air ride is what your looking for


If you have any questions feel free to ask. I attached a picture below to see what it looks like aired out. Front isn't maxed yet.

I'm new to radio-pro.ru. Just thought I'd post a pic of my car on full Airrex system. Bought the car January 19, 2014 and installed the airrex system on April 5, 2014. I recommend Airrex, very easy to install. Took me about 6 hours to install with the help of one of my friends. Love the ride, and also just the thought they use this air suspension on race tracks.

Airrunner also has bolt on struts. I posted the link in a earlier post.

I'm planning on running airrex struts with accuair management. How does the car handle and ride with the airrex struts? The only local installer in my area told me that in would ride like crap. But also said he has never put in airrex or accuair and mainly works on classic cars and hot rods. Does anyone know a good installer in the southeast?

This guy does a little of everything. I can tell you his fabrication work is top notch, but he is not cheap. He recently relocated from the Chicago area to MS. I'm not really into bags, but he is at the top of my list for some fabrication work on one of my other rides.

Out of those companies, I would say Airrex. They manufacture their own air bags which are rated higher than any operating settings on the market. They are rated for 400+ psi for their bellow styled bags, which is what I have on my setup.

BC, Ksport, Airforce, D2, are all the same pretty much. I know Ksport and Airforce both have kits for our cars.

My ride is comparable to OEM. A little stiff, but comfortable. I daily my car and no complaints. If your installer thinks it'll ride like crap, then I suggest finding another shop to install that is more suited for our newer cars. Maybe air on those older cars ride like crap, but the technology now makes it close to OEM.

Quality of install is most important.

Why accuair management if you don't mind me asking? I know they are a great company and their management is a proven system, but why not stick with Airrex's management or something like Airlift Autopilot V2 which are both pressure based instead of height based.

Currently. If starting from the softest setting. 5 up front, 4 in the rear. Maybe bump up the rear to 6. But so far my ride is comfortable and smooth. I got 60 Psi in front, and 50 psi in the rears.

Are your struts max to the lowest?
