Air suspension is an integral part of modern car tuning. It’s ideal for both the stans enthusiast and for people who simply want to add a boost of visibility to their iron horse. The TA Technix air suspension kits shown on this website have a number of advantages. The main advantages are the low price of the kit which is assembled with quality parts and allows the owners to convert their cars to air suspension without major headache. As mentioned above, another advantage of TA Technix air suspension is its excellent quality which has been verified for over a decade.
Unlike the coilover suspension, the air suspension allows the driver to change the car’s ground clearance in a matter of minutes. Such a possibility could be useful for any exhibitions, events, get-togethers with friends, as well as in everyday life situations.
What is Ta Technix air suspension?
It is a set of shock absorber struts with air springs connected to an air receiver with the help of air lines. By blowing air into the air bellows the car’s ground clearance is altered. Depending on the mode of connection, there are several types of air suspension:
Single-circuit (single axle) – the cylinders are connected in one circuit. It is mainly used on trucks, trailers for commercial purposes to increase the payload of the vehicle.
Split (multi-axis) – each air cylinder is connected to its own air circuit, this allows the height adjustment of each wheel or axle independently of each other. This is, of course, the more expensive variant.
What an air suspension consists of:
- Air cushions (air springs)
- Pneumatic shock absorbers (air struts)
- High pressure compressor for air supply
- air reservoir – for generating excess pressure and maintaining system stability
- Air lines (high pressure hoses/tubes)
- Pressure / body position sensors – to monitor the system
- Control unit
- Valve block
- Remote control/control console – Mounted in the passenger compartment
