    Air struts on 3rd gen Saturns

    Hi all,

    I've recently been looking into replacing my stock suspension with something different. I was thinking air.
    I've been reading about the Subaru WRX coilover mods and was already considering buying a set until I had another idea.
    I wasn't able to find anything else that was close to what I wanted. Lots of sites selling parts that "fit" but I'm not sure of their quality.

    After thinking for awhile, I tried looking around on Air Lift Performance's website for universal kits.
    Suddenly, I remembered that they had kits for Subaru's. I found a set of direct fit air shocks for the 00'-07' WRX's. https://www.airliftperformance.com/product/75552/

    They look similar the coilovers I've seen on eBay. I'm thinking that I can make these work with a little modification.
    I'm concerned that the corners on the top plates won't clear, but we'll see. I should be able to get my hands on these soon to measure.
    I already have an On-board air system installed in my SC2, and I am upgrading it tomorrow.

    They also have a rear kit, so I might try to do a 4-corner auto leveling system.
    Accuair has a great system that uses a custom valve manifold and ECU to automatically adjust the ride height.
    Air Lift performance has a similar system, but isn't as clean looking once installed.

    My other problem is finding a reliable way to route airline through-ought the interior.
    I have a PSI gauge installed in my dash, but the airline route to it isn't that clean.
    I plan on getting a digital gauge soon which doesn't require airline to be run to it.

    Has anyone else ever tried something like this?
    I think with the right wheels and tires this would be an awesome upgrade for the SC2.

    Kyle has air and his car is currently in my garage. He may consider selling you his current set up.

    I've been looking at his build thread. I'm interested in seeing some images of how the suspension is setup. The V2 system is nice as well.
    I would be interested in possibly purchasing some parts, if not the whole leveling and suspension system.
