What's the difference between what your running, bags over coils and a cup air system? Sorry for the noob question.

Cups only give a couple inches of lift

Ok good read, but they only talk about straight up bags and cup kits not airbags with coilovers. It said the cup kit was better for handling as it does not affect suspension geometry and handling characteristics. I've always heard bags weren't good for handling but great for ride quality. Is the bag over coil setup the best of both worlds, smooth ride, height adjustable and still handles just like coils or a cup kit with coils?

I like bag over coil set up because I get more dampening with my BC coilovers which I am still using with UAS bags over pretty much replacing my springs with a bag, they're comfy and nice to have handling I honestly felt more confident around turns with my regular coils but they still handle well, I've heard hit or misses with both people say cups break and aren't reliable then I hear bags aren't goo for handling ride like crap and blow so honestly got to find your own opinion I would rather choose bags because I can lift and raid the whole car higher than cups and I also have se ride heights and fast airing capability, need to be able to air up quick when seen a dip so I don't destroy my front lip

If you don't mind saying what did your setup cost minus the coils and install?

I didn't know what size hose for the water trap kit, what did you use? Did you go with a manual management, or the Elevel touch pad or ?
