Wouldn't work. Ask anyone that has an air spring/shock on their mountain bike. They are a bitch to tune properly and air is a bad shock media becaus it compresses before it flows. You would have a very springy ride on your car, even if you could get it to work properly.

i'm not much into show cars either, but having bagged suspension looks bad as hell in person. don't know about classics, but there are several b14's on the sr20 forum with bags. i wanna ride in one tho, to see how comfortable the ride is. the price ffor that stuff is insane too.

What's the deal with "it's made of strong metal". Is this compared to ones made with "weak metal".

What in the conventional Macpherson strut setup is not "strong metal". What in the conventional Mac strut setup is not fast?

How do you maintain air pressure or does your car just lower itself like a low rider when you turn it off?

How does anything move without live seals that can leak, tear, cause stiction?

I think someone is snowballing you with pseudo facts.

Just something to think about

been thinking about it

about 99 percent of the premade stuff (BOLT ON) usally comes from aim industies the other day i found out that i live 2 miles away from them so i could go and get the stuff from them NO shipping yeah. i was considering air struts they have them pole of the strut going thru the bag thats mounted on it and have a pillow ball mount on the top so the bag does not twist when you turn . the rods are more suited for the rear
