Marshall yes , I am eager to get these installed. I may do the air before doing the body and paint.

Damn this looks hella crazy. I've always wanted to buy a stock car then buy and save all my parts and toss them on at once.

Airex is the way to go man. You get a lot more features.
such as:
- built -in adj dampening
- built -in adj body (for height adj.) for the ultimate slam

you get the adj. damping (damping= adjustment in wave amplitude, dampening=what happens when your gf pwns you with a water hose) and shock length adjustments when you use UAS with a coilover (ala megan, tein, stance, etc...).

Plus then you get a known quality coilover vs. "airrex"'s
