And after researching the bag and air cup kit, I think i prefer air cup kit.
You're planning on adding a cup kit to ... Stock suspension?

is that wrong? lol

What if I lower it.

And can't I change out the stock kit to aftermarket later and pit the cup kit on that?

Cup kits are usually added to coilovers; although I don't believe it's out of the realm of possibility to put a set on top of the stock spring/strut combo. The problem with this setup will be that your front suspension will automatically raise in height proportionally to the height of the cup kit itself and your front/rear "stance"/rake/whatever will be lopsided.

Still, if this is what you want, then it would be best to get with Stance, Fortune, Phantom or one of the companies who produce the kits to get their input. The stock spring/strut combo would have to be sent in to be assembled and that's only if it's compatible with the cups.

If u can't drive carefully too avoid damage to the point of needing a cup kit, it's time to switch to a different car

Cup kits are thousands of dollars and that's not counting installation, you are literally burning money

Does Nissan sell the rogue in australia? Just give up and get a different platform

For anyone still following this or stumbles upon it, I will be documenting my install of an "Air Lift Performance" kit on all four corners. Ill be making a new thread for it and will try to remember to update here with a link. Ill be doing my best to document how I run the wires, airlines, and everything else.

Be warned, I have never installed one before so take what i post with a grain of salt when the time comes. So if any one has pointers on how they ran their air lines to the front wheels I would like to hear where you ran them. I plan on running the R/H with the fuel lines and the L/H on the left utilizing the a similar channel; OR i though or running them through the side skirts to prevent as much debris and direct weather to them as possible.

PM with any suggestions.

Thanks!
