I wish there were a way to use "economical" air bags (not the full on air suspension) to raise the car temporarily over speed bumps, steep parking entrances etc, then Iíd go lower. Love the way a reasonably lowered Z looks.
Annnnd, there you have it.

As a note to anyone, don't forget that springs are there just to hold the car up (way oversimplified of course) and what the shocks are there for.... to control spring action. If the springs aren't properly dampened, they're not going to do their job very well.

Put a stiff spring in without commensurate dampening of their action and the ride is going to be cr*p and the car will be less controllable because of the suspension imbalance.

Sweet, sour, always better balanced.
