Air Suspension

I was wondering if anyone has gone as far as to putting in air suspension in their 6's or know of anyone who has... and if you have, would you have any pointers as to dealing with the rubbing of the wheel well issue that i'm sure i'll run into... with that said, what is the biggest sized rim i'd be able to fit?


thx

Garrett

its just a air set up. its not that big of a deal really. it would involve the same work to do coilovers. in all truth i wish they had the air set up back when i installed coilovers on my car. i would have gone that route instead most likely.

What benefit does an air suspension give when compared to either the factory or the coilover route?

that depends on what your doing it for yourself really. adjustability on the fly is the big one.

I just want a car that rides smoothly while sticking like glue around a corner. Not too much to ask right?
