lovely! take pics of each step as you go, if possible. i see a lack of air suspension documentation for the LS400, though it is very straightforward. with the interest in the chassis going up nowadays, the demand for different suspension setups will increase.

Will do bro. The ucf1x/2x part of the forums is going nowhere. Not as many people posting any more. ;( everyone is moving on to bigger and better things now, lol

yeah, if anything the LS400 forum is growing everyday as these cars become more affordable.

I come from back when the ONLY coilovers available were $1500+ Tein CS, and only for '95-00 cars.
Now there's a myriad of suspension and exhaust options.

Just got my Aerosport bags from Universal air a few days ago. That's all I've been missing since my purchases for the other parts for the suspension like the tank, compressors, etc. I'm excited.
I just did my trunk today to get it ready to mount the tank and stuff!
Here's some progress shots of the wood trunk setup I did.
Just something really basic. Used a skil saw, and a Dremel to smoothen out the sides and get rid of small chips.

Also, bought some wheels already too.
Bought 19" Fabulous Profounds. photos to come later

Yes its gunna be a manual setup. Right now I'm thinking about how I should run the valve setup and all. I've seen the way timmyto0l did his setup. I don't want to mimic that setup though, I want to try to see if I can maybe fabricate something for the valves.

Styling like that is considered ancient by today's VIP styles. Good luck.

I believe they are discontinued as well, they make reps of them though if you're into that kinda stuff.

Just got the air installed finished by my brother while I'm currently away on a work trip. I would have loved to help and learn how to do the install, but our schedules conflict too much that we couldn't get it done lol. Heres some ****ty pictures for now, until I get back and put the wheels on and etc
