I realize some people, might find putting airbag suspension on a EF pointless. But im after a unique Falcon. So I'm after any suggestions, of how i can do it, and where to go to get it done, and some approx pricing. please help

try getting onto burnin customs they sell kits they used to have kits listed for fords but not anymore on there website basically you can buy "bolt on kits" but i couldnt imagine them being bolt on as such basically what you want are air struts or cylinders not air bags and they replace your spring and shock absorber

yeah i cant picture it being easy, even being possible at all. It would be due to the fact that they are a coil over design, and the rear shock goes through the coil... meaning you would need to get an airbag possibly made up with a shock going through the middle

wow just got a reply last night and another this morning heres what i found out read from bottom to top

The kit for the rear only is $1500 and i believe will be a straight
forward install.

cheers for the info guys what if i was only wanting to do the rear? what sort of price would i be looking at are there any issuses with the rear and what would i need

Hi ryan the EF and most of the later model fords are a difficult install due to clearance in the front end for the airstrut to fit, ideally it would need to have tubular control arms made to give airbag clearance. the kit would be $2899 without the cost of tubular control arms. which would need to be made on the car.

This is an enquiry e-mail via http://www.burnincustoms.com from:
ryan schuback <shoey50@hotmail.com>

hey was wondering if you have kits for ford falcons specifically a 1996 ef and if so could i get some pricing and a list on what is included? if not could you possibly suggest what would be need and maybe a price on parts thankyou ryan
p.s have emailed before but with no response anf kinda find it hard to find time due to work hours thanks again cheers
