Air suspension system for the Camaro

Has any body heard of an air suspension coming out for the camaro. What are the pros and cons to the air suspension vs an eibach system? I have heard with the air suspension you can lower or raise the car depending on how you are going to drive the car. Sounds good to me since I love the factory ride and height but may want to lower the car if I take it to the track. Any comments?

Ride is extremely smooth when traveling. My sources tell me that nothing yet, but watch in near future...

Nothing on price just yet. If you mean 4 valve like front and rear control only no. This kit will include our digital Autopilot air management. It has 2 manifolds that run 4 valves per. You get individual control of each wheel. So zero air is shared in the system after the tank.
I will get some more pics up for you guys and gals to see.

OHH MY GOD!

If i weren't so broke after buying this car and all the engine mods i've done so far, i would get that in a heartbeat!

but i think i'll be happy with the Pfadt sport suspension that is being shipped to me right now!

I had an opportunity to briefly drive the Camaro with air (that's my stock-height black SS on the right in one of the photos...), and I was VERY impressed with the ride and handling!

I will get some install pics for you guys of the rear. There is two - 2gal air tanks and a single Viair 380 compressor mounted in the spare tire well with the battery. You can't see a thing.
A little bit of the upper rear spring pocket has to me trimmed to fit the rear. The nice thing about all of this is it can still run the factory front and rear if ever needed.
