    I've got it on the rear of my Camaro, And I'm currently running it with manual air valves. My car rides better then ever, and still handles great. I recently installed Koni SA's in the rear with the Air Springs, and I would have to say they work very good together!
    I don't have Air spring up front yet because the shock options SUCK, and I'm happy with my current shock/spring combo up front.

    I cant comment specifically of the fbody kit but Air Ride makes some very quality stuff. If set up correctly Air Ride is for more then just laying frame and doing dog legs. The air shop is right down the road from my house to and they are some cool dudes. The owner also has a bad ass c6 z06.

    i would think that the ride with these would be better than any shock and spring set up

    Suspension travel at high speeds, or cornering at relatively high speeds/G's???

    The 'Reaction' of the Air Bag itself versus a High Rate Coil Spring???

    I would assume that they could be dialed in to do about whatever you want by just changing the pressure in the bag. I would be interested in how they perform side by side with say a Strano and KYB set up.

    Wonder if anyone on this site has actually contacted them for some written info on this.

    Say you're going 100 MPH, what's the lift on the front of the car, then graduate up at speeds of 25 MPH increments, to say 175-200???

    Same with cornering, such as going around a long sweeping curve at 75 MPH, then work your way up to say 125???

    Just a thought, but hopefully someone knows, or they have the written test results of these type of testing sessions???

    A couple of years back Air Ride put on a sort of meet and greet for media to come and test there suspensions on various car. one was a third gen camaro. They tested a stock car and one with there set up. I don't think they got to in-death really just seat of the pants info.

    Yeah, those are older photos.
    I currently have the front a little lower (about 1/4"), Koni SA rear shocks(not in photo's), Fays2 watts-link, UMI roto-joint lca's (not in photo's), and a Hotchkis adjustable rear sway-bar, and the exhaust dumped before the rear-end.
    I'll also be installing Koni SA's up front soon w/new Hypercoil 625 lb.in. springs on threaded coilover sleeves .
