a buddy of mine has a civic on bags. and will sell me the entire kit cheap. he says all ill need is different bags to fit my tC. i dont know much about air suspension. and am not even totally sure yet that i'll do it. but my question is..can i use a "universal" bag thats listed as Scion Compatible? i only ask because it says nothing about the tC. ive noticed on most sites they only have the bags and/or air suspension kits for the xA and xB. thanks in advance for any help.

As far as I know, there are no commercially available kits for the tC right now. I know earlier this year Auto Fashion in San Diego was looking for a tC to develop a new Air Runner kit with. Even if they had a kit for the tC it might not help you in your situation. Air Runner only sells complete kits. So either the Air Runner air management, or the parts from your buddy would be a complete waste.

Another option would be buying "Universal" parts from Air Lift/Easystreet. This would require some previous experience with air suspension, and some pretty decent fabrication ability.

If neither of those work for you, it may be time to find a "local" shop that specializes in CUSTOM air suspension.

aah, just my luck. fabricating something myself isnt really an option. if it wasnt a brand new car, id think about it. so id really rather have it done right. so that everything stock can just be replaced back in when needed. and i wouldnt mind finding a complete kit. but like you said, there aren't any available. thanks for the help.

the Air Runner kit is in stock for the TC. its a direct bolt-on application. retail is $4000. if you're located in Norcal, i can get you any Air Runner kit and have it installed in Santa Clara/San Jose area. my buddy van @onetongarage does the install. PM me if u have any questions/comments. if you're in Socal, go to GT PRO www.gtpro.com

I'm sure this guy is on this forum, his name is Dave. His tank is mounted under in his xB.

Wow this thread needs reviving, Airlift makes a decent air ride setup, for the most part it bolts on with little modifications.
