Its madd slow because of the follow. All the lines are hard lines that are less than 1/8". All four bags run on 1 small compressor and very small vavles. You can see em under your passenger side headlight. Its about the size of a mans fist. Take all that into account...try filling 4 bags with that equipment. See how long it takes you to raise or dump the car.
can you post what all has been modified on your air system to make it faster ??

My Set up
-5 gallon slim and skinny tank
-(2) Viair 380 compressors
-Auto Pilot Air Management controller
-(2) 2-way electronic valves
-(2) Craftsman water traps
-1/4" line and fittings

all this plugs into my stock OEM bags with 1/4" line. Ive removed the stock valves and compressor, but still use the oem ecu to control the dampening.

just curious as to how much all that cost im sure you save a lot of money using the stock OEM bags and all this is just plug and play right? just a matter of switching things out?

Not everything is plug and play. It took a lot of time and experimenting to get the right sized fittings to fit on the OEM bags. I had to do a lot of cutting and welding to get those things to not leak and fit properly. Other than the stock air struts the rest of the system is very easy to install. Total it cost me around $2600 for everything. Lines, fittings, controller, valves, welding, metal sheets, tank, compressors, water traps, power wires, fuse box, remote wire, optima battery, and fuses.

May I ask what is the benefit of all that mods to the suspension?

Is it solely for the purpose of lifting and lowering the car quickly?

I had the same question when I first started and here is an image of what the rod looks like. (should be in position #1 to lower it) The rod is double sided. Twisting it in one direction will "expand" the sensor, while the other will contract it, thereby lowering the sensor lever. However, even at the lowest, it may not suit your taste so you may have to cut about 1/4-1/2" off each side of the rod to give you a bit more lowering. Also note there is a locking nut on the top and bottom of the rod you need to loosen before twisting to adjust. Some others have fabricated their own rod. I tried but could not find a reverse treading die (the clockwise die is easily found). Once you figure out how easy it is, it will take you only seconds to access and adjust as needed.

Click the image to open in full size.

The rears are even easier. Just crawl under the back wheels and you will see an adjustment bar one each side. Loosen the 10mm bolt and slide the sensor down. Tighten and you are ready to go.

This is important. It takes time for the compressor to adjust the height. Just wait a minute or two to see the result, it is not immediate. I think the lowering is a bit faster than the lifting but still slow.

Good luck.
Bumping frenzy tonight!!! Good diy write up airtime
