What up fellas? I was recently at a car show a few weeks ago and I saw an Escalade that appeared to have a different type of setup that I had never seen. My friend said it was air shocks/cylinders instead of bags or hydraulic pumps. Was he right? And if so, how do these work? How much would one of these setups cost? Thanks!

actually the ride for me is a hell of a lot nicer than my bags......because when my front bags where dropped and i drove it was bouncey as a mother fucker but when they were raise it was smooth as hell.....but now with my cylinders no mater if there dropped or raised they still ride hella nice

About how much does one of these setups costs? I want full manuverability if it's possible...ya know, all four wheels ;). Forgive me if my questions sound stupid fellas, I'm new to all this, but I'm really interested in it.

go with bags if youre looking for durability...

as long as the car will accept them, that is, some rides you just cant seem to fit a bag anywhere...

What would you guys say is a decent price for a basic setup? Well, basic as in being able to move on all four sides/corners up and down?

depends on how fast you wanna go. Decent (1/4") prolly cost you like a good $1,400+ (1/2"), prolly like $1,600+. I'm adding in a guestimate on brakets and shyt.
