  • Air lift for the front end of My Murci

    Can anyone help me with getting the air lift for the front of my murci. I run it now at 4 inch from the ground and kinda of hard to drive out the drive way. What can I use to lift and lower the front end only.
    P.S. I can not afford the $3000 system.
    Mo San Diego, Thanks

          You will need a compressor capable of producing at least 175psi, a tank rated at at least 250psi, and some Gabriel Hijacker air shocks from Ebay for about $80 pair. Also, about 20 ft of air line, 2 air switches, a controller switch, and some air line fittings.
          Alot of people laugh when i mention air shocks, but they are much better suited for this application than air bags, require less pressure to lift, are easier to mount, and will handle more weight. They are also available in different lengths and lift amounts. You should be able to put a whole system together for about $600 max, between SUMMIT and EBAY.

                  All the parts will be available on ebay. If you dont find them there, go to Summit.com. You may want to contact Held, I know they make an air-lift system for their suspensions.

                    Murcie-me, there's nothing to laugh about at air-shocks.
                    Even the oem murcie is not using the rubber bag type.

                    I have the Air suspension system (rubber bag type) at my Toyota Estima.
                    Good for the family car.

                    But these Rubber bag type its way too soft for bad ass like what we plan to built.

                    Air shocks is much stiffer.
                    Or if u are goin nut (enough), u may try the hydraulic jacking shocks.. ;D double the fun(nut)!

                    good luck.

                        I dont know about the price for the hydraulic yet..
                        but will definately try it when i start my built.
                        I thought i post picts here along with questions of the oem set i found at japan's site.

                        they cost about 2~3K used but good condition.
                        But i have zero info about "how to" make them work yet... :P
                        wonder if there's another unit to flow it to lift up or what else..
                        anyone have info?

                          i used to build low riders and its not that expensive to use fluid.for the murci's you would just need 1 basic pump,2 cylinders,1 solenoid,1 dump valve,1 switch,1 longer hose,1 y block and 2 shorter hoses. you could also get a pump that has the dump and solenoid integrated. you would have to make custom brackets/mounts. i wouldnt expect to pay more than about $400 for everything. you could also find a kit that came with all this for less than $400.
