Aside from the suspension, everything in this kit is pretty much junk. The tank is steel which will eventually rust from the inside, the compressor is a 380c which is loud and slow to fill, and for all the trouble of installing a manual setup I'd want higher quality. Manual setups are sometimes more challenging to install. Take the time and spend a little more on a nice management. V2, switchspeed, elevel, etc.

On average, how long does it take to install an Air Suspension Kit on a Subaru?

Took me quite a while, the struts are easy, basically drop in.

But the running and tucking air lines, mounting everything took a while but it was not a bad install. My buddy and I drank and ****ed around a lot and installed in about 6 hours. We were meticulous about leaks and used tape on all fittings and made sure we wouldn't have a leak. Low and behold the first install and no leaks, aired up right away.

That's a very subjective question... The last e-Level install I did took me about 12 hours of working by myself at a relatively relaxed pace, start to finish.... Given, I've installed quite a few air suspension setups, have a hydraulic lift, and a plethora of pneumatic tools at my disposal.

If you're at home, doing the install on jack stands and no pneumatic tools, it may take a little longer. I typically compare an air ride install to that of a "normal" (read: coil-sprung) suspension install combined with an aftermarket amp/sub install, which I feel is somewhat accurate.

E-Level is a bit more involved since you have to install the height sensors, which for a first-timer can be a bit of a headache. All other systems, especially the AutoPilot V2 can be very easily installed in a weekend so long as you have the proper tools and know-how. An extra set of hands, as always, can considerably hasten the process.

All in all, it depends on the tools you have at your disposal, how comfortable you are with the task at hand, and of course, your skills as a mechanic.

3 hours if you know what you are doing. On the legacy first time with first time using airlift v2 etc took like 5-6 hours cause had to run and get things along the way.

On the next legacy took me around 3 hours with help a few friends.
