Recommended Posts

Hi, I am a new member of the forum. I’m sorry for my English….. :rolleyes:

I have removed original air spring from my disco II, the question is “in your opinion is it possible use the original air compressor to built a little under pressure air sistem with pressure control device, tank, valves and so on?

My doubt is about the power and capacity of the compressor.

Any ideas?

Thank you.

Ciao

Your doubt is correct - the air suspension compressor on most vehicles is not designed for continuous operation for any length of time and will rapidly overheat. To give an idea the compressor on a D3 will get the sulks after you do about 2 or 3 suspension height changes from high to access and back to high again.

In theory you could build something that would sort of work, in practice I think it would be carp...

Thank you for the answer, I will study in depth the possibility to do that one.
