i went with cylinders cuz hydros is too much cutting and welding...but cylinders you can pop them on and off like springs and shocks...if your interested i might be selling my setup soon...i might sell my car so i might part out my car...i paid 2200 just for the setup...if you want it im asking for 1700 obo...its been on my car for 6 months and there is no problems with it...its not the cheap setups you see selling on the internet...i chose every part of my setup and chose only the best parts...but yea ill only sell it if i get a good offer...but yea to answer your question yea you can bad your accord but its cylinders and not bags...and i suggest you get cylinders instead of hydros

HOW IS THE RIDE QUALITY WITH THE CYLINDERS? AND AROUND HOW MUCH WOULD IT COST ME TO INSTALL THEM? AND DO THEY MESS UP YOUR CAR IN ANYWAY OR ARE THEY COMPLETELY SAFE?

the ride in my opinion is way better than springs or coilovers....theres nothing that can go wrong besides if you drive with your car slammed on the ground or raised all the way up you have to drive with some air in it...it can cost up to 1000 at stores for you to get it installed...its better to try to do it yourself its not that hard...and they cant mess up your car in anyway....everything is bolt on so you can take it on and off as you wish

The Hack Shack sells a godd air ride kit. The guy that I know (he did my truck) he uses a lot of their stuff now. He just got done doing a prelude with air cylinders and said it was badass.

Yeah air is the best, im in the process of installing my kit little by little, from last week to this weekend...hopefully this weekend I should be done. I got my kit from EAI www.excentrixauto.com but i ran into a few problems. The rear brackets didnt fir cause they gave me U-shaped one, when everyone on here knows that the rear struts on the 6th gen Accord are round at the bottom with the bushing inside.

I was just about to post a thread about air ride too but I did a search cause I didnt want people complaining about re-posts. I am a member of ((Honda-Acura dot net))(<--Won't let me type out the real URL ) under a different name (SloWPaiN) and we have had about 3 threads going about air rides, each are about 3-4 pages long. H-A.net is currently moving their server so it;s not available. If you guys have any questions Ill be more than happy to help out with what I can.

Feel free to check out my album on all my air cylinder parts...

Though I'm not into that whole air suspension thing. I did see a new product out. You use your regular suspension (springs + struts) and you add this air bag on top of it. The purpose of this is to keep the great quality ride from conventional suspension upgrades like adjustable coilover kit with upgraded strutes but with the ability to raise your car with the touch of a button to go over those annoying speed bumps and then lower it back down to the perfect height.
