T4 Post Icon Ripples in the water............air ride for the T4

Ok guys and girls.
Just a mini update for you all but, Keith (T4chippy) and I have been chatting rubbish in the shadows and have potentially come into contact with someone about an air-ride system for the T4. It's early days and nothing can be promised. I will keep you all abreast of the latest info and detail when and where it happens.

If it works there could be a decent discount for forum members as well... again, not final as this is mega early days.

Definitely

Would sort the bouncy front end out too

This isn't the company were in negotiations with but it's a simalar system




And yes, were trying for a T5 system aswell

Surely it`ll be purely price dependent ?
If you`re talking 50 then you`ll get through a couple of thousand, if you`re talking a couple of thousand you won`t get through 50.
Any ball-park figure, below 4 figures ?

I was just wondering how the front would work. Removing the torsion bar would cost

Www.air-lift.co.uk

These are re guys me and keith are chattig to. They've said the torsion bar issue is very simple by all accounts so thats not such issue. Price wise, not a clue yet. It will all depend on what set up you have put on and what controls you'd have. Have a gander at the site to get ideas.
