Air assist suspension

Posted question in tech section, but no replies. We have a me Forester 2501. The manual says 100psi in air assist suspension. Is that the max fill or average amount to keep them at? Thanks in advance!

According to the manual, 100 PSI is maximum pressure. I set mine (depending on road and load conditions) between 70 and 80 PSI.

That is the max fill they can be filled between 5-100 PSI. From the factory normal driving is filled to 60-65 PSI after that it is personal preference.

100 psi is most likely more than you need. Ours does best with 65 when fully loaded.

Over 75 PSI my ride got harsher in my 3011 which is heavier in the back than your rig. That 65 psi recommendation is probably a good starting point.
