Since 1996, the Acura TL has been a popular choice for car enthusiasts to love and modify. Available in both coupe and sedans throughout the TL’s lifetime, both iterations have been modified to great heights. Wheels and suspension are some of the most popular mods that TL owners choose and air suspension is a route many take for adjustable ride height. Today, we are going to look at what you need to add air suspension to your Acura TL.
Do Acura TLs Have Air Suspension
From the factory, Acura TLs did not come with air suspension, but it took only a short time for TL owners to add aftermarket air ride kits to their cars. The TL features a common MacPhearson-style suspension setup with an independent rear suspension. While this makes it easy to add lowering springs and coil overs, you would need more ease of ride height adjustability with air suspension.
What Do I Need To Add Air Suspension To My Acura TL?
If you are looking for an easy guide to see what you will need to add air suspension to your Acura TL, we here at AccuAir have put together a quick parts list.
First, you will need an air suspension compressor to supply compressed air to your air suspension system. You can choose between one of two air compressors, but we suggest going with two to allow for your system to air up quicker.
To store air in your air suspension system on demand, you will need an appropriate-sized air tank for your system. Air tanks are available in 3 and 5-gallon sizes, and our AccuAir Endo tanks are a great option to choose from!
To get your air delivered to each component, you will need plenty of air line. Think of air line like the veins of your air suspension system. They will go from component to component and ultimately to the air struts.
A valve manifold is a block that contains electronically controlled valves that open and close to allow air to flow to your air struts. This manifold is controlled by your air suspension management system and will require wiring.
The air management system is what allows you to control your air suspension system from inside your vehicle or on your smartphone. AccuAir is a leader in air suspension management system manufacturing and continuously pushes the ball forward regarding air suspension technology.
Lastly, you will need air struts or air shocks to replace your current suspension components. When swapping to air suspension, your factory shocks and struts will be replaced with air shocks to allow your vehicle to air up or down. These are the only components of your air suspension that are vehicle specific, so you will need to make sure you get the correct parts.
