Air Ride Suspension

I've been looking at the Ksport kit, heard good things about them on other forums (air ride kit). Who else makes a kit for us?

I've been considering an air setup as well. My research lead me to this hybrid system by Platinum VIP; which I'm considering:

http://www.phantomsuspension.com/

Two other players are Air Runner (http://www.airrunnersystems.com/air-suspension/) and Air Lift Performance (http://www.airliftperformance.com/). I believe member 2theextreme has an Air Runner setup...

There is a company a few miles from my place that does custom air ride with lifetime warranty for around $4k. Stopped by and talked with them. They had some really nice high end cars that they were working on, so I trust these guys know what they are doing. They have a really really nice Platinum Armada lifted on like 38"s and really nice wheels. All one off peices for the lift made in house.

hmm, with something like the TC-5 could you actually do some lapping or is it what I typically think: nothing more than daily driving and show with air ride?

it depends on what kit you get, some u can run stock suspension or use coil overs....if you do track, obviously buy the coilovers to match up with the bags...

myself, i dont' track, nor do i drive like an ***....i'd probably stick with the OEM suspension + bag combo....but yet still have a better ride!

I know Tony (2theextreme) has one installed on his Z and he's had a bunch of problems with it. I don't think he would recommend going this route after the problems he's had, but you can PM him and ask.

there are always the limited few with problems with everything, doesn't mean it will be the same for everybody.

If it's installed correctly, i dont see a problem!

Well he was the only one that I've heard of that has done this to a Z, so I thought maybe it would help. Wish you guys the best of luck with this and hope you don't have any problems
