Aircups by Flushstance

INFORMATION/SETUP OPTIONS
Do you have rubbing issues on the front of your car when turning? Is your car aesthetically lowered to you likings however you can’t get over speed bumps or up your own driveway? Is your car lowered but not as low as you would like it to be due to everyday obstacles? If you answered “YES” to one of these questions then look no further as aircups many solve your problem(s).

Aircups are pneumatic cylinders, which when filled and emptied with compressed air, extend and retract an internal piston, which compresses or decompresses the coil-spring. This action allows the driver to lift or lower their vehicle at the flip of a switch. This method of adjustable ride height allows for an extremely consistent suspension response over other air ride methods. The amount of lift or lowering capability is based off the stroke length of the aircup assembly. We offer both 1/2″ and 1″ stroke aircups as this retains the best combination of ride height adjustment, ride quality, and alignment specifications. Each pair of aircups when conjoined with coilovers will allow for two different setup options. Either of the following setups can be achieved using the same aircups however, only one of the two options is possible at a time.

Additional Lift
This setup works great for those who are content with their current ride height but have clearance issues in everyday use. After installation and spring preload is set adjust your your driving ride height with the aircups decompressed. When you then allow compressed air into the aircups the internal piston will extend thus raising the car the stroke amount of the aircups (1/2″ or 1″ depending on what you purchased) allowing better clearance for any objects that you may need to drive over or any inclines that you may need to go up. This setup option will make no physical change to the suspension’s ride quality, response or performance, as the aircups will be decompressed until needed.

Additional Lowering
This setup works great for those who are happy with the current drivability of their car however would like a lower stance. After installation and spring preload is set adjust your driving ride height with the aircups compressed. When you then allow the compressed air out of the aircups the weight of the car will retract the internal piston thus dropping the car the stroke amount of the aircups (1/2″ or 1″ depending on what you purchased). This setup option will make very little change to the suspension’s ride quality and no physical change in response or performance. If the additional lowering limits drive-ability we do suggest use of an air gauge or a sensor to monitor air pressure.
