AIR RIDE

Finally got my car got back after 4 days in the shop gettin my air suspension put in. The mechanic did a great job installing it. I was a little worried that the ride was gonna be affected, but once i set my front and back to a certain height it rides like i never changed anything. My car is now turnin' more heads then ever before. Now i just gotta wait for my veilside ff gt kit, fenders, and veilside Hood to come in and i'll be done with the exterior of my celi. Hopefully i receive everything in one more week.

air ride vs full tanabe coil over system? i know the coil overs are about $1,200 so how much are the air ride? also does the air ride kill your handling? anyone got some pros and cons? thanks wave

I heard a lot of bad things about the handling being affected with the air ride. but as long as you drive with the front and back at a certain height the ride is real smooth (no bounce at all). It goes up and down and side to side really soft no hard drops. You also need to make sure it is installed the right way. I will post some pics as soon as i go out and buy some batteries for my camera. The price depends on which kit you buy, I bought the best one there was for the celica and it cost about $2300 shipped. I don't regret getting it at all. thumbsup

It was a full Kit. All I purchased was a new switch because i did not want to use the one that they provided cause it was too big and bulky. I ordered it from EAI ---> www.ExcentrixAuto.com
