      sorry i'm late to the party, but i knew this was the case after i read that you left it in. glad you finally figured it out!

      the sounds this car makes after installing air are so frustrating sometimes haha, i drive myself nuts.

      haha, i was the same way man, driving low scared the **** out of me haha. you SHOULD be worry free at about 50-55 fronts/30 rear for almost any road hazard (mainly any sort of raised road seam. you're front bumper definitiely won't hit it, your subframe might, but i've had good luck at that front psi). You should also be able to take most turns at that pressure in the front as well

      Haha, im settled in now at about 50/35. I'm gonna see how it goes at that height an maybe make a preset at 45/35 for roads that I'm 1000% sure are silky smooth

      What's the FTG around at DD heights (on detroits obviously)? Just wondering if most of you guys are cruising around coil height and then dropping when parked. Looks great though!

      I'll take some measurements later, but I would guess around 21.5" maybe.

      No way. I'd say 23's or 24's.

      at 50 psi, you're in the 24's probably, maybe even 25's.

      Off topic, but does this car get any garage space or is it out in the elements?
      Looking good though, cousin.

      Sucks man. I figured you'd have one of the inside spots since you got a new car. You could always park it in the extra spot in my garage! My car gets lonely sometimes

      Loving the set up man looks great

      How come you decided not to use the sway brackets?
      http://bagriders.com/modlab/products...-BRACKETS.html

      Also how do you like your v2 is it pretty accurate do you feel like you have to adjust and add air to your presets a lot?

      Loving the set up man looks great

      How come you decided not to use the sway brackets?

      Also how do you like your v2 is it pretty accurate do you feel like you have to adjust and add air to your presets a lot?
      I just wasn't a huge fan of the sway brackets. Kind of a flimsy alternative. I dont DD the car so not having a sway bar isnt a big deal for me. The V2 has been spot on accurate wise. On two occasions however, the driver side rear reads zero on startup and filled. After about 10 minutes it corrects itself. All i do is switch to manual and look out the door and fill up. Not sure what the problem is but it doesn't really bother me.

      thanks was just wondering why you decided against them. I would like to keep mine sine I will be driving the car a lot. Not bad to I have heard mixed reviews about the v2 so I figured I would as those who have it.

      Update:

      Manifold has been acting up. Drivers side rear frequently reads 0 when filled. Which also interferes with the presets. Contacted Airlift and they're sending me a new one. Great customer service
