Are you stuck between a rock and a hard place? On one side, there's the temptation to install air suspension and be able to bag out your ride every time you park, receiving that well-deserved street cred. On the other hand, you're too scared to go that route from all the stories you heard. Especially when you hear people say things along the lines of "my buddy installed air suspension and his bag popped after it wouldn't inflate".
In reality, a good brand of air suspension will serve you well. A company like Air Lift has been around since the 1940s, and they've been specialising in quality air suspension products ever since. They cater for both motorsport and the industrial industry, so they know a thing or two.
Even car manufacturers equip production cars with air suspension straight from the factory, and it's not only exclusive cars either. Even emergency vehicles and trucks, which rely on reliability and durability, have them.
The issue with faulty and unreliable air suspension comes into play with installers who claim to be specialists in the technology but, quite frankly, have no clue how to set the systems up properly. Air suspension is far more complex than traditional shock absorbers or coilover setups. They require expertise and the correct parts for your specific vehicle to guarantee safety and reliability. There is a reason why companies like Air Lift charge what they do for air suspension, while your buddy down the road does it (usually unsuccessfully) for a quarter of the price.
