Air suspension

Anyone here have it or looking to do it? I want to get it done and I've been quoted $6500 for a great setup. I'm just wondering what a pretty good setup would cost

I got the digital kit for just under $3,700 for everything. I did the install myself, if you can do a little wiring and can change out a strut you would have no issue installing this kit. Besides drilling a couple of holes it is a bolt on kit.

For sure, it was one of the best mods I have ever done!!!

I thought about gettin this too but I'm worried about the caster/camber change while driving at different ride heights. Tires are expensive. Lol

The car handles and rides extremely well. WAY better than lowering springs, and on the road course it feels more stable than the coil-overs the car used to have.

As far as the caster/camber goes you really don't need to worry about it. You figure out what you want your driving height to be and get the car aligned at that height. As long as you do most of your driving at that height you will not see any abnormal tire wear. I only raise the car to get over speed bumps and steep driveways, then put the car on the ground while parked. I normally drive about 1 1/2 inch below stock.

It's kind of funny to visualize someone stopping at a speed bump, raising the car up, and then driving over it. Totally awesome that you can do that, just funny to think about haha.
