Air ride suspension

Is it worth the money or is more benificial to go other routes? What about wheel alignment do you have to get it adjusted everytime you swap out the ride height or is it pretty spot on half the time? I'm looking into possibly doing this one day in the future if the price ever drops or if it's worth it. Anyone have any pictures of their rides dropped (but not slammed to the ground)?

IMO I'm not much of a fan... I have some lowering springs on my car and if feels great and can notice a little bit of a drop. I think the air ride looks kinda stupid when people pull up and drop their frame to the ground. Just my opinion I will never understand the need to have a car so low that the chin spoiler will break off when you pull into your driveway. I would rather spend a third of the price on springs and still be lowered. But hey if you like it more power to you! It's your choice and don't let anybody stop you.

I just lowered mine with the Eibach sportlines springs, with a j&m phb! I am pretty happy with the turn out! It runs really smooth to!

I would get it if I could afford it. You dont HAVE to drop it to the ground. You can set your ride height where you want it. Supposed to be a much better ride and handling. I've seen a lot of cars on the autocross with it and they always do very well. As for the alignment, once its set you dont have to mess with it. But make sure they set it for your ride height. Your caster and camber will change as you lower or raise the car. You should only be doing that with it setting still. I think its stupid when people play with it while their driving. Use it like an adult and you will love it.

Air ride is actually very good for both comfort and racing at the same time. Coils are becoming a thing of the past. And like mentioned before you don't have to slam it to the ground, people will often do that because they can with the flick of a button.

Ive had mine on the road from being bagged about a month now and driving has been limited due to winter but i absolutely love it. I have built several bagged trucks but having ny mustang on air is amazing. It drives better than stock and handles great over all. I have more lift than a stock car and i can lower it to any height i want. I do suggest not buying the manual valves and go atleast 8 valves and a avs box or accuair elevel like i did. It has ride height sensors that will not let the car fall out of the set heights or you can adjust to what height you want if you dont want to be in a setting. This set up is great because it keeps all corners perfectly level. Btw idk what size wheel and tire combo you are running but they will affect how low it goes also and unless you're under 25" in the front the stock bumper will not touch. Heres mine in all its dirty glory

The kit on am is like 3k with the front and rear kit being roughly 2,000 of that from what i priced. Its cheaper to go the route i did as far as suspension goes if you are capable of fabricating things. The front struts and rear kit are like 2,000 i have roughly 800 in front and back. Plus all the airride... Ill get a video of it tomorrow i about 5-6" of lift from layd out
