A few thousand at least. The KSport kit retails for $3000, plus installation cost if you aren't familiar with air suspension. UAS may be cheaper, but you'll have to know what you're doing to piece a kit together.

Well yeah, bags are the springs, not entire suspension. You'd have no control of your car with just bags and no struts/shocks.


Now to answer your question, Since you sound new to this, I will assume that you don't have the knowledge to piece a kit together or you wouldn't have asked this question. I good kit installed will run you around 4500.

You don't use your stock struts/springs. They will come together as a kit and are made just for that.


These are the ones I'm going to go with when I get into my suspension, except Im going to change few things on it, like add 1/2 lines instead of the 1/4 that comes with..

My friend and I started MIC in Cali, Chino Hills to be exact. We mastered air suspension when there was no air suspension. My buddy carried it on to make it huge and open a huge spot there.

Yeah not the springs but the struts yes. Its better to go with stronger aftermarket struts than stock.

The universal air suspension kit does not come with struts. The bags go around whatever struts you have.

I would go with the coilover kit as you mentioned. Well worth the $$.

Also please put your future threads in the correct sections. You keep putting them in the MAIN section. Its easier if you put it in the appropriate category under "ASK YOUR TECHNICAL QUESTIONS" so that people looking for the same similar topics can find it.
