ACDelco Air-Lift shocks anyone?

Want some new struts? What brand springs to buy? How much camber to run? What brake pads? What's the best setup for your situation....

ACDelco Air-Lift shocks anyone?

Postby michi » Fri Jan 11, 2013 10:07 am

I just have seen there are those Air-lift shocks fron ACDelco for our cars and i wonder if anyone tried them out.
Since i am looking for something more stiff in the rear end i wonder how they would work with some pressure on them. I have read they are perfect for cars that has loaded trunk or tow a trailer to get the more ride height but do they also work to be stiff in with the ride height it has now? I have KYB gas-a-just shocks and canuck loweringsprings in my car and somethimes i really want to have something more stiffness in the rear.

With enough air pressure they would indeed be stiff,but they will likely raise the ride height and could cause problems with the lowering springs.

Okay thats not good at all. Stiffness would be good but a higher ride height not :D
I really wonder why canuck motorsport springs are not that stiff... when i compared them to stock springs, the stock springs were stiffer than canucks... why that, lol.

All the aftermarket springs for Beretta are just for show, none for go, you need to go custom to get something usable.

Gonna bump this thread for more air-lift shocks information.

I've been really working my brain dreaming up a durable, reliable air suspension setup that would allow me to get some lift and lowering when I need it. I might have the trunk of this car loaded down with 100lbs or more at any given moment, so I can use the extra utility.

Plus lowering the car a little for better MPG and performance on the highway, then raising it up to clear snow/ice and driveways when I'm going around town, would be amazing.

I don't remember much about my air shocks(only drove the car for a month). All I know is that when they didn't have enough air the rear of the car would bounce(just like having no shocks at all). Too much air and the rear tires would be in the air after a bump.
Never drove the car on a dirt road, but I don't think it would have been a good idea.
