Got mine installed today but you might need to check in the 2IS section or regional forum section

A Basic air install in the bay area is gonna cost you around 900-1800.00 easily. It all depends on what components are installed, and if your getting a garage install, or at a professional location. Air is something you want installed correctly, i.e. lines ran inside the car vs outside...etc because if not, you may run into problems such as bags deflating, pinched lines etc that can cause an accident.

At the end of the day if I were you, I would do some research with some shops etc and see what they charge, and ask what the install procedure includes. As the saying goes you get what you pay for. I wouldnt expect a $500.00 install to be equivalent to a $1000.00 install ---> Expect being the key word, as with anything there are exceptions...

Good Luck and post pictures of the car once done!

Mine was installed by Carlin at Impact Performance in San Francisco. Looks like you have almost everything you need. What's dope about Impact is he doesn't nickle and dime you on fittings, etc. He'll tell you the install price based on what you want and that's it. Carlin did mine, Nat's and numerous other installs.

His number is 415-602-5338 (Carlin)

Didn't even know there is a reputable shop in SF. Near my house too.

Another vouch for Carlin at Impact Performance. He has a booth this week at the SF Auto Salon show in the Moscone Center. My car along with a few other that he worked on will be on display. Check out his work first before making any commitment. You won't be disappointed.

Sincere question:

I have been a part of the aftermarket scene for some time now and have an absolute monster of a Camaro to show for it. I have found that forum popular shops commonly fail to deliver when it comes to anything more complex than a body kit.

What is the honest feedback on Impact Performance for things beyond simple installs? (I consider air bags to be a simple install)

I know Carlin the owner personally and is a friend. What are you referring to in your question?

I'm not sure what you're really referring to... The OP clearly states he was looking for a shop to do an air install. With what's pictured it's air struts and accuair management. Making custom mounts to mount up level sensors where level sensors weren't meant to be isn't easy. Not all air installs are a like and not all installers are a like. I would consider an air install a more than just a simple install. A lot of things to consider when installing air. Not only do you have to consider what car you're working on but you have to consider the driver and their wants. Making their wants work with their car isn't always possible but I feel Impact Performance considers all these things during a consultation. Impact will often replace inferior parts that sometimes come with air kits with more reliable ones...depending on the cost it may or may not reflect on the final bill. I see your point on forum popular shops failing to deliver but I would also consider who is vouching for the shop. Everyone who's vouched for Impact Performance in this thread alone are reputable people.
