1. Modifying stock shock is not necessary.
2. Please check each step below after completion of install.
a. Thread a lower mount downwards to lower setting to prevent the body kit from being damaged, if the car sits very low.
b. A lower mount and a lock bracket must be tigtened completely, connect air lines to the shock. Its very important that air hose must be disconnected if the vehicle ride height should be adjusted with the lower mount or the lower lock bracket.
c. Air Springs will change it’s physical configuration due to different air pressure. Therefore check if all components of suspension have contact with the air spring when they fully inflated. If so, it’s neccessary to remove the parts or the air springs might be damaged. Also, when the lower arms are moving up and down with will affect the air springs as well.
d. Air Lines: Start attaching the air lines now. The air lines are from PFT 280 psi, operating temp. 80 degrees. Please eliminate any elements such as exhaust, lower arms, driving shaft that might have interferencee with the air line on it’s path if you are running your lines outside of the vehicle. Althouth it’s recommened to run your air lines 1/4 inside of the vehicle. Be sure that there is enough movement of line, because the air struts will be turning and moving up and down. Which is an important step and this can not be skipped.
e. Where to set the lowest vehicle ride height is at drivers discretion. Be aware that the air springs can not have contact with any discretion. Be aware that the air springs can not have contact with any components of the vehicle. Also, failure to maintain correct minimum pressure will cause the shock absorbers and air springs to fail. It’s necessary to drop the vehicle ride height a bit when the shock absorbers are over extended under driving. While the vehicle ride height must be risen when the shock absorbers are bottoming out. This product enables to bring you excellent comfort under normal stroke condition. The ride height can be a proper setting when you feel the vehicle very bouncy or shock noise will come out. (setting the vehicle ride height to the highest position is not the optimal ride height.
f. Be sure to maintain 70 psi pressure when putting the car down the ground after completing the installation of the shock absorbers. The air can not be released only until the vehicle is put down the ground completely. Failure to doing this will cause the air struts bag to creased and pinch the bag and ripping the bag internally.

g. To check what is the vehicle ride height is dependent on alterability of the air spring load and rate characteristics. The ratio of air pressure to the vehicle ride height varies due to each vehicle with different weight. You can read from the needles on the gauge to tell what vehicle load so adjust the vehicle ride height is corresponded to . The amount of oil and the number of people that the vehicle load so adjust the ride height based condition.
h. Determine the mounting location of the gauge and the switch. Be sure all lines are to be in place and wires can not be cut off.
i. Controlling the remote outside the vehicle can show off. It allows for all up and all down at certain vehicle ride height by pressing a button. The vehicle ride height goes up or lower by pressing the button. The system will not function when the button is released.
j. The remote is not one touch design.
3. Electrical components.
This kit is supplied with circuit diagram. The power must be connected to the positive terminal of the car battery. It’s recommended that the electricity for the compressor is best to run through one relay. The compressors need plenty of electricity when it’s operating, the compressor does not operate when the car is switched off.
4 Inspect all air lines connections with a solution of soap and water. Reinstalling the air line to the fitting is necc. if a leak is found.
5. After inspection, put 70 psi into the air struts then put the wheels on. It’s very important that the car should be put on the ground otherwise the air struts will be damaged and will not be covered.
