Hey Guys - I'm looking at lowering my car and of course my first thought is to go AirLift but tempted just because of the price tag. I want my S550 low. What's everyones opinions on coilovers and which ones can get you the lowest while maintaining it as my daily? Post pics, if possible. Thanks!

I was thinking the same as you. I went with Airlift 3p. Main reason was so I can lift the car with the push of a button, second reason was to also have a nice ride as close to stock. Third you can air out so it has that slammed look when its parked.

Man, your picture just made me want AirLift more! Lol. Did you install it yourself?

Yes I did it myself pretty simple. I really like the look of the driver when another mustang pulls up next to me when I drop it to low setting lol. In my experience it is well worth the extra money for bags. If you have any questions I will be glad to help.

How much are you guys paying for installation? The black friday sale on Airlift looks really tempting, but I don't think I could afford another $1000+ to install it.

It's not that bad to do it yourself. From a pure performance standpoint I prefer my Ridetech coilovers but there are a lot of benefits to air.

Yup, it’s official. I’m going bags for sure. Your guys’ cars look sick!
where have you found the best price? so far for the 3P system with 3/8 lines, two compressors (and noise reducing mounts, check valves, harnesses) and 4-gal tank for $3105 at bagriders

really tempted

Hey sorry, I just seen this. The cheapest I found was if you hit [email protected] on instagram he can give you a killer deal but the deal ends on the 30th so I’d DM him right away. Good luck!

Ups and downs for both.

Bags are way cool but....
Cost
compressor noise
more to break
weight
lose trunk space

I went with coil overs, but I was more interested in cost to performance ratio than looks.
