this entire post is so funny. Was all Air Lift and accuair was'nt for him but a month and a half later he buys accuair. Glad it all worked out for you. You may want to mount those rear sensors in a different location might be stress after a while.

I'm very mechanically inclined and I work faster than most so that's a solid 12 hours of bust *** garage work. Part of that was removing the old setup and lines though.
You didn't ahve to remove the 1/4 lines you can still use them as long as you have the reducers for the valve.

Of course I didn't have to, but I wanted to.

You're mistaken. I never once said anything like "Accuair isnt for me". What's funny is how perfect you made Accuair out to be and look what I experienced. Faulty equipment and poor performance from an Accuair product. I never said Accuair wasn't for me or Airlift is better. I said they are a company just like any other and their products aren't perfect.

The rear sensors are fine. They travel free and smooth. Hard to tell from a picture I guess...

I will say that the autopilot is a "fair" system and works great if you actually like messing with switches/buttons. The presets aren't 100% reliable, but they work most of the time. For the money, it's an ok system. Obviously not perfect, but works fine for the average user.

Elevel is very expensive, but is a fantastic system. I'm not scared of my wife driving my car anymore. Rise on start works flawlessly and KEEPS the car at a safe driving, ALIGNED height. I spent a lot of money on the elevel, vu4 and iLevel, but it's an awesome system.

No, I wanted to do it right and not use extra fittings to reduce. 3/8 is faster than 1/4. I did it because its my car and that's the way I wanted to do it.

If you understood the air flow ratio you would see there really is no difference

Ummm I can tell there is a difference between the 1/4" and 3/8" lines by how fast my car moves. Yes, there is a difference and yes, I understand there is a difference. If there was no difference nobody would run 3/8" lines.
