I never knew anything like this existed. Im probably a little late as usual tho. I guess its probably because they cost about $3500. Nobody really wants to spend as much for suspension as they did for their car.

Well I do! Ok.. Well not really but I want these. Ill start saving now. maybe Ill have them one day. :D
Anyone have these or know someone who Does? Im very interested in the ride quality. Im sure its amazing.

Id be interested to know the weight of these Vs. the Tokicos & Eibachs Im running now.

I know theyre other companies that will develop custom kits for you. UAS for example. Here's a Gen 5 with a kit. Yes, he's on TN. :) View his other videos... he goes over alllllllll the parts of the system. And i'm sure the compressor and lines add a good amount of weight.

I wonder too. If the airbags go in like a complete shock/spring assembly, then EVERYTHING else would be easy to do by yourself with instructions. I'd love to see the price go down though....

I'd like a set myself. Adjustable ride height at the press of a button sounds GREAT. I wonder how the ride is though.

I wonder how much of those pics are just "stock" photos instead of what we'd actually get in a kit. Because those brakes.... wow.

Yeah Im interested to know the ride quality too. Im sure its pretty nice. The bags dont have to do much work with the shock in place. Id think the bags would be a bit cushionier than springs. (LMAO making up words again) I REALLY want these. I wonder how long it'd take me to save that kinda cash??

makes for a really nice (and adjustable) ride. Every little bump is literally whooshed away. I've got an older buick that will be getting a full air ride set up - not sure how it'll take, but looking forward to driving it when it's in.

All I've ever heard from air type suspensions were complaints.
Suspension being super stiff, ride being harsh and uncomfortable, hitting bumps are like hitting potholes.
I've also heard they're very prone to exploding when you hit potholes/bumps really hard.
Being that K-Sport is a cheap brand in the coilover world, I wouldn't expect too much of anything out of that setup.

That's interesting, I've heard the opposite.

They've been used for many, many years - I think a lot of the lincoln towncars used them, and on 18wheelers for at least 30 years...

the only down side, from what I understand is, after 10 or so years, your bags can leak...

I wish I had the money to buy a new car. Then I could just make this one a beast. :D
well then save up for the air suspension and then say f**k it and put a nice down payment on a new DD and use half of that to get a good CO setup and really enjoy the handeling:thumbsup:.
