the car adjusts itself as needed .... but that doesnt mean the compressors kick on each and every single time the car adjusts itself ... it only does so when the tank(s) are low.

Call us, 802 735 2574. We are always glad to provide technical support! We are open M-F 9am-5pm EST.

Quick troubleshooting checklist:
  1. If you unplug the controller, then plug it back in, does it light up all white? If not, check the 12v (red) wire in the e-Level main harness.
  2. If you unplug the battery GROUND and then re-connect it, do the pumps kick on/off? If not, the pumps have no path to 12v.
  3. Can you manually power a compressor? Try running two wires (power and ground) directly to your battery and tap the terminals to ensure the pump isn't DOA (very rare, but hey its a possibility!)
  4. Have you checked to ensure the relay is wired correctly, and if so, that the relay "clicks" when 12v hits the signal terminal?
  5. Does the rest of the system turn on with the vehicle, that is, it is only the pumps not working? If not, you have a bad source of Ignition.

Again, please give us a call and we can gladly troubleshoot with you over the phone!

Best,
John

This is my car on d2 struts. Which doesnt go as low as airlift. Frame was notched here a tad. We notched it more and did the tubs as well after but then i ran the tmb and didnt need to tuck.

How much of the frame in the fenderwell did you take out?

I was gonna take a heatgun and a BFH and going to town on it I'm beginning to think that it might not be enough though...might go the route of cutting out the well, and moving it up an inch or two and welding in reinforcement below to hold shape.

Be prepared to spend a lot of time hammering... I used a heat gun and pneumatic hammer (as well as a "BFH" ) and hardly moved the material. The issue is that there is a reinforced 90* angle in the wheel arch (where the fuse box sits on the driver side, and air filter box on the pass side) which simply does not want to move even after heat and extreme hammering. I notched about 1.5" into the subframe and cut out the entire well and lifted it up about 1.5 - 2.0", welding in a strip below the OE material and sealed it up. This ended up being WAY easier than hammering, and you hardly have to pull anything to get good access to where you need to weld.

Hope that helps! Feel free to PM if you have any questions

I was talking with someone last night and they made a comment about never wanting to run the air line through the interior ever again, but yet running it on the bottom of the car. Curious to see how many people did what?

This was brought up awhile back. You can do either. It is personal preference. I have mine ran outside the car and this is how Air Lift installs all of their prototype cars. As long as you have the line ran in a safe way under the car you'll be fine. I have 40k miles on the kit without any issue.

Running outside the car does two things:
1. Makes install quicker
2. Gives easier access to line should it need to be replaced, etc

It's personal preference, and largely depends on the vehicle itself. For instance, the 02-07 Chassis doesn't really provide a great place to route the front airlines under the vehicle... there is really just the galley for the exhaust piping and that's about it. The newer 08+ Chassis is a bit more friendly when it comes to routing lines outside the car, but the last GR install I did, I routed everything inside.

The only reason I have against routing air line outside the car is that in the event of a blown line, the suspension would be limp on whatever corner went, and therefore it may be MORE difficult to access the underside of the vehicle, whereas you can always get at things inside the cabin.

A good rule of thumb for ANY air ride install is to look where the manufacturer put the brake and fuel lines. These are usually good paths to follow for air lines as well, since they will be out of the way of the axle and other moving parts which would cause a problem.

I find it very easy to remove the interior plastics in my '06 WRX, so I routed my front air lines up the passenger side, under the plastic door sills (there's a bunch of other wires in there) and through the large grommet in the firewall for the main wiring harness (basically directly above the turbo). I do the same thing on the newer chassis as well.

Here's Kevin routing some lines in his '05 Sedan


And that grommet I was talking about... (minus the presence of a turbo. sorry Kevin <3)


Hope that helps! Feel free to PM me as I have a TON of installation pictures from the various Subaru's I've been involved with bagging.

I had to route mine in the exact same spot Kevin did, it was just easier...

So, running around on stock alloys (15x6's I think) after I spun the struts down a lot meant some self notching happened. Now the tyres rub on the wheel well, which means some tubbing is in order. However, with the new wheel setup, that might not necessarily need to happen.

I decided seeing as though every one else was in the double digits with their width, I'd make the RS' 10's. So I did. Now they're 16x10+25 all round.

Did mine on the outside. Found a nice little spot on the GDs to route the line clean up to the front and keep it tucked.

Finally got my system running for the first time just now! So pumped. Still got some dialing in to do on the rear when I get time. Posted a quick vid on instagram if anyone wants to take a peek (not the greatest vid) @dblocksti

I had this issue and sometimes it still does it on hard bumps. I called air lift and they said the rears are sleeved bags, not a double ball like the fronts which make it not as comfortable.

I adjusted my air pressure to go as low as I could without rubbing and messed around with the dampers which helped out a lot.

Still figuring these things out though. I was on stock suspension before this and it was much more comfortable :/
