An air suspension system will have a few components that work together to air your car up and down. At the heart of your system is the air compressor. Today, we will look at an air compressor, how many you need, and what compressor will work best for your application.
What Is An Air Suspension Compressor?
An air suspension compressor is a small air compressor that is used to, as you can probably guess, compress air to be used in your air suspension system. These compressors need to be wired into a power source and will usually kick on when you turn your vehicle on and when the air pressure is low in your system.
Do I Need One Or Two Compressors?
When building out your air suspension system, you must determine whether you want one or two compressors. While one compressor is usually enough for smaller cars, running two compressors can help ensure that you have more than enough air. This is perfect for those who like to use their kit more often than others to ensure you always have a steady supply of compressed air running through your system.

How Do I Mount My Air Compressor?
The air compressor in your air suspension system must be mounted securely to ensure it works properly and stays upright. Mounting an air compressor will vary from vehicle to vehicle, depending on the mounting surface. Some will be mounted to a wooden board and carpet, while others may be mounted to a truck frame. If you are using an AccuAir ENDO tank, you can use our exclusive mounting brackets to easily mount your air compressor to your air tank for a clean and easy install.
