As most of you know I ordered the Veilside kit...I havent seen it in person but from what I see in the pics there doesnt seem to be much clearence between the bumper and the ground. My prob is I have B&G Springs with a 1.7 inch drop. I plan on hooking up with LO&SHO and purchasing one of his Air Ride kits but untill then should I raise it back up or keep it slamed. I dont got the money to just mess up the Kit and buy a new bumper I dont like to fix stuff I already have...another way I was thinking is only putting the bumper on for shows but my friend told me it is very hard to take the bumpers off and on over and over.
Thanks for the Help guys<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

sup man, I would suggest you raise it to an eibach height, like 1.2-.25" nothing lower, I like you have the B&G's, and I have already scratched up my bumber to where I need to fix it... you don't want that trust me... I am no longer driving my car, until my coilovers arrive...

no KORE will prolly start working on a sleeve style coilover, but we're exporting a "true" coilover system from one of the top KOREAN racing companies and those are the ones that I'm going with, they're somewhere in customs, and I'm waiting for them to be released... <img src=/images/forums/snitz/disapprove.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

Congrats on the air ride from 2LO I'm sure he makes an awesome kit, just too much weight for me already cause of my system, plus I don't want to hurt the handling of my tibby, I can't say I've ever owned a car with air ride but from most of my friends I can see I will never learn to like them, just not the same handling ability...

If your gonna have a show car, then go with the air ride since it is easy to adjust back and forth.

The main reason people shell out the cash for true coilovers is for superior peformance. Basically you get the same amount of damping and bound travel no matter how low the car is.

I would imagine that adjusting the coilovers would be a PITA since you have to reach into the wheel well and adjust the nuts. I could be wrong... what is everyone else's opinion on this?

Who said you don't have superior handling with an Air Ride Suspension??? <img src=/images/forums/snitz/eek.gif width=15 height=15 border=0> *lol* If you install it right, then you will have good handling. You can still have your front and rear strut bars on, and if you ONLY do front/back/pancake moves, then you can still have underneath sway bars on.

Is an air ride just as good as coil overs. Maybe not AS good, but pretty damn close to it, depending on what moves you want to be to do with the suspension, and with who installs it. If you get some hack to throw the kit in, then yeah..you're gonna have crappy handling. It's all in how you fabricate the brackets. There's an art to it, and there's an art to the welding process. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/wink.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

Also, who said an air ride adds alot of weight? it no where as heavy as juice (hydraulics), and it takes up very little room. You have 2 air tanks (about the size of 2 batteries), 2 compressors (size of a small amp) electronic air manifold (can hide under the car) and a couple other real small things that you can hide too. As far as weight, the entire thing probably adds around an additional 50 pounds to your car, IF THAT.... <img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

But if your going with REALLY good and superior handling characteristics, and the ability to go low, or raise your car up for daily driving, then be safe and go with the coil overs. Otherwise, if you want somewhat good handling, able to lay your car completely on the ground with in cab adjustability, then go for air ride. As any kind of suspension system you get, there's pro's and cons. It's up to you though to see which one you like better. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/wink.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

Good luck! <img src=/images/forums/snitz/cool.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

Hey 2LO, I'm sorry but I don't think anywhere in my comments or opinions did I put down your work or said that I've been in one of your kits, sorry if you felt I was attacking you man... in no way would I do that... <img src=/images/forums/snitz/disapprove.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

<BLOCKQUOTE id=quote>quote:<hr height=1 noshade id=quote>Congrats on the air ride from 2LO I'm sure he makes an awesome kit, just too much weight for me already cause of my system...<hr height=1 noshade id=quote></BLOCKQUOTE id=quote>
See I said cause of my system...

See again, I talk about most of my friends systems, and I'm sorry it's not the same handling at all, feels sluggish and too much noise coming from them I hear...

Once again man, I'm sorry if you felt differently... <img src=/images/forums/snitz/oogle.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

Awww..dude...in now way did I ever think you were making a personal attack. I know you wouldn't do that bro! <img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0> I was just saying in general about the air kits.

That sucks about your friends rides. I really have to tell ya though...there's a TON of hack company's out there that take people's money, do a shady install job, and then run with the customers money. Could never understand why people do business like that. When I do paint jobs, mody modifications, suspension work, etc, etc, etc... I act as if that person't ride is MY OWN VEHICLE. I make it 110% or I don't do it at all. Oh well....if only all companies thought that same way. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/uhh.gif width=15 height=15 border=0> *lol*

LMAO!!!! That's hilarious! Not being able to shoot paint because the body kit is made poorly! *HA HA HA HA HA HA* It doesn't matter if the kit was the biggest piece of crap in the world! If you know how to shoot paint, and do it right...then it will stick. And as far as the color matching...well, any REAL shop knows the meaning of color sanding, and color blending. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/uhh.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>
