Suspension questions involving AirLift Kit.

I plan on lowering my car but I don't like the roads in my area much, so I decided to go with an AirLift Kit. I'll be driving in a lowered stance most of the time, but sometimes I'll be driving in a higher stance. I will be putting LCAs, relocation brackets, and a UCA on the car before I get the AirLift Kit. I'll be ordering the adjustable panhard bar when I order the AirLift Kit. The question is when I install the AirLift Kit should I set the adjustable pan hard bar for a lowered stance? Just trying to cover all the bases because I know when you lower the car the rear axle shifts. I didn't know if riding in a higher stance when the car is set for a lower one would affect the ride or rear axle.

Set the panhard to whatever youre going to be driving at most. My setup is 60 psi fronts 50 rear for daily driving. I have it at 100 all four for getting into driveways. The car rides so smooth even lowered youll be surprised.

I'm planning on going this route too because I hate scraping. I've had other lower cars before and it sucks. Just curious with what company you are going with? I m thinking of going Airrex suspension. Sorry I know none of this helps you out.

Suspension questions involving AirLift Kit.

I refuse to lower mine... Lol need that ground clearance for work driveway, house driveway and other parking lot turn ins around my me. Almost like I live in a bowl.
What's the average cost of a air kit? I've priced it out before but I'm sure it's changed over the years.

I totally understand where you are coming from. I rarely drive my pony to work because I scrape
And I'm not even lowered yet. I got a quote for Airlift Performance's digital kit with full install for $4500.

It's $3200 for the kit. I'm going to install it myself.

Set the panhard to your preferred ride height.
