Springs or Bags

I'm looking to lower my 2014 mustang 5.0 and I'm trying to decide either between springs or an air lift suspension. I'm leaning more toward the air lift because I don't want to loose the ride quality I currently have with the stock setup. I have had lowering springs on my previous mustangs and the ride quality felt terrible but I never upgraded the stock shocks or struts. Does anyone have experience with the air lift? And if so should I go that route or just do the springs with upgraded shocks and struts?

The reason it felt terrible was because you didn't upgrade the shocks and struts

If you are doing spirited driving or more bags are not for you. I have done lots of springs without struts and shocks and it is the wrong way to go. Either springs/adj struts or even coils would be better since you would be able to dial in the perfect ride for you.

How far are you lowering? I talked to a guy recently who went with roush because their setup felt very close to factory ride quality but still dropped height an inch. His testimony.

However I have no personal experience with the roush setup. Can anyone confirm or deny his claims? Only person I met so far with those parts.

I wouldn't do bags there very expensive, you have to buy a lot of wiring the bags a aircompesor and technology equipment to change the ride height, thats not evening including the equipment to make space for ThE Bags

also, it depends on what type of springs you purchase...example progressive like the eibachs would give a better ride.
