One of our local customers brought his '59 Impala to us this week for a simple air suspension installation. We used Air Lift's 3P system, with a polished aluminum 5 gallon tank and dual Viair 444C compressors. The car is going to the upholstery shop from here for a new interior and a trunk build-out, so we kept everything simple with a carpeted panel under the package tray to mount all of the components.
The suspension was set up with our bolt-on mounting brackets and Air Lift Dominator air bags at all four corners. The owner is installing a set of 13" wire wheels with smaller whitewalls, so it should lay flat on the ground when those are swapped over.
It's always a treat working on a clean classic car, and this Impala was in fantastic original condition- not a single bolt was frozen or broken, and there was almost no rust to be found anywhere. I can't wait to see it again after the next round of modifications!
