Thread: F355 Airbag suspension help

    F355 Airbag suspension help

    On my F355 Spyder rep, there is front airbag suspension, it doesn't have a compressor because the one it had stopped working so I usually just fill it up to a level where it looks like the car is sitting nicely, but the ride is still extremely bumpy and I feel every pot hole and crack in the road (I live in Chicago) is there any way I can wrap a Spring around the bags or some kind of suspension around them so it is a softer ride? I am clueless as far as suspensions go, so all help is appreciated!

    do the fiero have a wide track susp. or did it come with wheel adapters you can use a coilover setup thru the susp. Post a picture of what you have ,remove the tire an take a pic so we can help you
    In the USA if you pay a company / person to start a plug, then it,s your plug and work ,it is not theirs to sell or trade !!

    I do not know of anyone that makes a kit to be added to the airbag suspension. There are lambo guys out there who have both a regular suspension and airbags but only use the airbags to lift the front for a high driveway etc. My recommendation would be to toss the airbags and buy yourself a set of front and rear coil overs. This will give you the adjustability of the airbags and a better ride. You can use the coilovers with and without wheel spacers.

    The air bags will give you the harshest ride with unpredictable ride height. I too suggest you scrap them and go with coil springs. You will need springs around the 350 to 400# rating on your front.

    If you decide to delete the air bag suspension, please let me know so that I can consider purchasing your components. I need something for a lowered Mera that will get it out of the driveway and over speed bumps without scraping the front end air dam.

    fill-up, what kind of bag setup do you have, more specifically the bags them self. Are they plain o'bags or do they have have shocks in them. I might be interested in them if they have shocks built into them.
    pictures would be nice .
