i searched accord and read through everything for the most part not many accords there. what setup did you end up with? or did you even go through with it? i dont really want to piece it all together since a kit made for the car is always easier. atleast i want the struts/bags to be car specific.

I haven't gone through with it due to lack of funds/ other priorities. The options I've found in order of cheapest to most expensive when it comes to struts/ bags is: UAS aero sport bags, Airlift struts made for the 6th gen (they bolt up), D2/KSport/Airforce, Airrex. As for management: Paddle valves (manual), electric switches (manual), Airlift autopilot V2, Accuair switchspeed, Accuair e-level with rocker switch, Accuair with e-level with touchpad.

Obviously, I've been doing an extensive amount of reading.

Keep in mind, with the small size of our strut towers, all of those options are sleeve style bags so they aren't as comfortable a ride as say a dual bellows bag. One thing I've been wondering is if our strut towers are the same size as the 8th gen. Reason being, Airrex's bags for the 8th gen are double bellows where as we get a sleeve type. Food for thought.

Good man. I compared Airlift's double bellows bags to Airrex's and Airlift's were probably 2" wider in diameter which means they don't fit. I'm curious as to what Airrex's offering is for our gen.

Cool man. When you do get those Airrex struts (if they are in fact double bellows) would you be willing to take measurements? I haven't been able to find anything online for them.

Only thing about air ride is when you have a leak it sux to try and find it. I spent many times underneath my truck with a bottle of soapy water.

well, that's part of air. like me i did the install myself, i kinda figured out where to look for leaks. it's gonna leak no matter what. just a matter of how strong of a leak it is.

Winter time is the worst for leaks. The colder the climate the worst they are. Just make sure you keep moisture from building up in the system as much as you can.

This is EXACTLY what I came in here to say.

Winter SUCKS with air. Weather it's leaking or your compressor is to cold and doesn't want to pump until warmed up.

Hope you don't plan on DD'n on air. It can be a pain.

yea im going to just do static for now because the 95% humidity in louisiana every day sucks on compressors. plus im not fighting leaks whenever, just to give an example, i bought my car february 27 with 60k miles......i just went and looked at the odometer and it sits at 72k. 12k miles in 3 months is just to much drivin to worry about leaks lol

Depends on the type of setup your doing and the quailty of fittings. I only use D.O.T. rated brass fittings. I keep the valves mounted inside the trunk area where they wont be expose to the harsh elements and environments. I only use UAS bags and fittings. Ive never had issues with there stuff.
