For Those Of You With Air Suspension

I'm tried of cracking my kit riding so low to the ground so I'm looking into getting Air Suspension.
I have a few questions for ya'll.
1) Are you running cylinders or air struts?
2) What brand and any problems so far?
3) What is the ride quality
4) Any modifying required.
Thanks Ryan

when i had air ride i used air cylinders and my first set were aro's and then i got smc's for the rear as i learned more about cylinders...i had no problems with my setup and i had it for about 2 years and its a good idea to get it with a kit if you can afford it...i had it for daily driving and i didnt have any problems with it...u just have to find the soft spot and you'll have no problems

Thanks. Thats what I'm going to get is the complete kit. I was looking on ebay and found a kit with parker cylinders for around $1300.

Canovers are the best, but they cost more than a pretty penny.

LOL I like how you said the soft spot. The first time I drove mine I didn't realize that different heights drove completely different and I drove over a bridge that was higher than the road and it knocked the F*** outa my car and I was all mad cus I thought cylinders suck but I let some more air out of em and then it rode like a cadillac. Thats the only reason I bought cylinders was so I wouldnt drag my body kit everywhere but now I just do it on purpose cus its cool

What kind of cylinders do you have? Any problems with them.
I have been looking at the easystreet air struts.
Not sure what I'm going to get yet
Just need some more input.

I've got AIM cylinders no probs. so far, but my car just sits in the garage everyday so **** can't break to often on it. I'd go with AIM or EAI cylinders....good look finding air struts cus they don't make em for our cars anymore

When i tried to order my airstruts they told me they discontinued them because they kept blowing out. I've heard alot of bad things about airstruts though. There is a kid with a new tiburon in my town and he has airstruts and my car was lower than his with just coilovers. I talked to the guy at a shop that put them on that tiburon and he said they ride like ****. I called him the other day and he said that kids parents called him and cussed him out because the transmission in that tiburon went out and they are blaming it on the damn airstruts. LoL....some people are just NO MINDS.....

after looking into air ride i've just decided that living here in NJ i'd be better off getting TEINs. I wanted air ride sooo bad too :-(

Air Lift Company makes air struts for our cars. Never heard too much about them though. I heard bad things about AIM cylinders. I think if I go with Cylinders I'm going to get Parker cylinders.
Right now I have Koni Yellows with Ground Control Coilovers and the ride is good but I just want to be able to adjust the height of my car at will. I'm sure my body kit will also appreciate air too. Thanks for the info.
