thinking of gettin air suspensions on my car, what are the pros and cons?

Instead of coilovers, I was thinking might as well save up more to get air suspensions. What do you guys think?

was thinking of doing the same thing, only cons i could come up with is the holding tank in the trunk, and running the lines. My camaro is not my dd so i don't need all the adjustability that the air offers, or the extra weight.

There is really no cons to air suspension lol. You should look into Accuair suspension, they have the best when it comes to air management.

I have air suspension and love the ability to adjust to any height any time. The stance is amazing when you drop it.

How much does air suspension run for? Is it more than coilovers?

Those with are on bags, how is ride quality compared to stock? Is the myth true that low = bouncy, high = stiff? I too want to lower my car but on multiple times scraped my cats and front bumper while on stock height.

I would say the ride quality is very close to stock, when the vehicle is lowered 1 1/2" below stock ride height. Air Lift is getting ready to release a new set of struts that has a threaded body design, much like a coil over, that will be 30 way damping adjustable so you can really fine tune the ride to your liking. Let me know if you have any questions!

My man, you and I will be talking soon whenever those struts come out. I'm going to be responsible and use my tax refund on freaking bags instead of paying off student loans. 'Merica.

The manual will not be any issue at all, it is just takes a little more to install and is not as user friendly as the digital system on a daily basis.
