So do you drive low with your suspension setup? Or do you drive it up all high aka donk status? What psi are you driving on with the uas bags on factory style struts like that? I had struts on my GS and hated it. I was always at low low bag psi to drive around low. This time I went with a coilover air bag setup and love it. I drive as low as I did static and slammed and still have plenty of lift and lay frame.

what's cool about UAS bags is that even with lower pressure the bags are still stiff enough to hold the car up. it's only when the bag is at its lowest (there is a metal sleeve inside the bag that limits how short the bag can go), or when the struts max out is when the ride turns to crap. this can happen more easily with struts as where coilovers you can dial in the sweet spot to the nearest millimeter. it's really all in the height of the bag bracket that can determine how low you can roll with struts.

yeah I drive pretty slammed until I park I lay frame. I think it looks stupid too, driving it lifted all the way up... unless I have to. "donk" status lmao
