Anyone install a full airride system

Anyone install a full airride system in their car? I am looking at the system with the airbar in the rear.

I want to know if they are happy with the system, if the ride is good and how low can they get the car.

Any regrets or other ideas are appreciated

Re: Anyone install a full airride system

We sell Air Ride, installl Air Ride and own Air Ride equiped F bodies. LOVE it! Awesome stuff. Lisa's Project EmptyNest Firebird does it all using Air Ride. Super low ride heigth, autocrosses good, drag races good and rides really good especially for a super low cruiser.

The Air bar is a real nice rear set up. We sell a lot of the Air Bar for the NON Air Ride crowd and substitute coil overs for shockwaves and that makes a great set up also.

Let us know if you have anymore questions.

Here are a couple pics and a little video of Air Ride at work

The camber looks way off on those front wheels.

That is a -.8 degree aggresive camber set up for autocross. Many go over 1 degree for autocross, but we do not need that much. for the street I pull 1 each thin shim and it goes to -.5 degree camber.

That car also has 295 front tires so they have lean in a bit to clear. The outer wheelhouse is modifed to clear the monsters.
