it is actually very smooth at the ride height I have it set at. But if I am ever on a rough road or need to go over speed bumps, I can air it up at the push of a button

It is the Airlift digital kit. Front was all bolt on, Rear was 95% bolt on. I had to make two small cuts on the rear spring pockets for clearance around the mounting plate for the strut. Other then that it was very simple and easy to install. I did it by myself in my garage in about 10 hours.

do you actually drive the car on the street at this ride height? How many miles have you put on your car since installing the air ride suspension? Any issues with your rear axles breaking?

car looks great by the way!!

I love air rides, been wanting to install it on my car but hesitate whether my 22" wheels would have clearance if something were to happen to an air bag. But it looks great on your car! Love that you made it match with the s10! I'm building my '72 Jimmy to match and show next to my car.

Yes I drive the car at that height, its my daily driver and no issues at all. No axles breaking. I have probably put a couple thousand miles on it since installing the kit

The guy I bought the kit from had 22's on his car and didn't have any issues, so you should be alright.

LOL no this isn't hydraulics. I run a high enough PSI where I could bounce the car if I wanted to, but the Airlift manifold uses small diameter airline. This causes a slow and smooth raise or drop of the car, not enough to "bounce" it.

Your wheel alignment pretty good, or are your tires wearing fast?

Kind of wish they had a Camaro specific product. Asked about this in the past, but so far no real, orderable kit.

Looks BA though.

No wear at all. Just get the car aligned at the ride height, and you are good to go
