While the Acura RSX was short-lived, it quickly created its niche following and became one of Acura’s most successful sports coupes. The RSX was modded as soon as car enthusiasts could get their hands on them. Most owners started with wheels and suspension, with many choosing air suspension. Adding air suspension to an RSX is relatively easy when using high-quality components. Today, we will look at everything you need to add air suspension to your Acura RSX.
Do Acura RSXs Have Air Suspension
From the factory, all Acura RSXs were equipped with a MacPherson front strut setup and a trailing arm rear suspension. These vehicles were not equipped with air suspension from the factory, but the aftermarket quickly provided a solution in the form of air struts for Acura RSXs.
What Do I Need To Add Air Suspension To My Acura RSX?
Adding air suspension to your Acura RSX has never been easier, thanks to AccuAir. We offer full air suspension management kits and air shock kits to get your RSX on air. The following list guides your core components for an Acura air suspension system.
Starting from the back and making our way forward, you will need one or two air compressors. The air suspension air compressor will take in the surrounding air, compress it, and send it to your air tank to use in your system.
From the air compressor, your compressed air will go to your air suspension air tank, a large tank that stores your air for your system. Air tanks are usually offered in 3 or 5-gallon tanks, and we here at AccuAir offer some of the best tanks in the industry - ENDO tanks.
To move your air from component to component, you will need a high-quality air line. Air lines connect each component of your air system together, from the compressor all the way to the air struts, to deliver compressed air throughout the system.
When toggling your buttons on your air management system, the valve manifold will open the correct valves to allow air to flow to each air strut. These electronically controlled valves meter air to fine-tune your air suspension on the go.
An air management system is a control system that allows you to electronically control your air suspension system from a controller or your phone. AccuAir manufacturers some of the best air suspension systems on the market, allowing easy access to your air suspension system whether in your car or standing next to it.
Lastly, air struts are the only component that is not universal and will need to be vehicle specific. Air struts replace your factory struts and shocks with a similar strut setup, but instead of traditional coil springs, they will be outfitted with a rubber bladder. This bladder inflates with air to raise your vehicle and deflates to lower your vehicle.
