Default airlift autopilot v2

Hey guys, new to the forum. I was just wondering if anybody has any knowledge on the airlift autopilot v2 air ride suspension kit. I recently purchased it and was curious as to if a rear camber kit was necessary in order to drop the suspension right down. The car does have 20" rims on it as well. Any input or links would be great. Also looking for a diy tutorial if there is one out there. I haven't had any luck finding one specifically for the z. Much appreciated. Thanks

The install is not difficult. Just time consuming in coming up with where you want to mount your air tank and manifold. I have autopilot v2 and it is very nice, you will not be disappointed. You will want to get all of those alignment pieces (camber kits, toe bolts, etc.) in order to get the alignment back to where it is supposed to be.

The first link below should be an install manual for the front airbags and the second link is the install manual for the rear bags. The manual is very helpful with plenty of pictures and descriptions to walk you through ever piece of the install.

Thanks for the reply. I will not be doing the install until April or so due to the fact that the car is currently in storage for the winter. (Yes I live in Canada lol). If it's not to much trouble to ask of you would you be able to let me know exactly what I would need to buy in order to restore the alignment specs while running bags. I am fairly new to the air ride scene and just want to do this build right. Thanks so much for your time.

It truly depends on how "proper" you want to do everything because the parts vary greatly in price depending on brand. I would say the most 'prestigious' brand is SPL, but I think those pieces are a bit overkill and more track-based than street based.

The brand I always recommend is SPC. I would say they are the step right under SPL. I will attach links to what I think are all of the parts you should look into getting.

Autopilot v2 is just the management system. Aftermarket camber arms are not required to slam the car. It is required though if you want to get your camber to a certain spec. Toe bolts are recommended as well.
