Thanks...yes, after market air suspension is more reliable. It is also faster, can go lower, and more cost effective in the long run. If your OEM air struts goes out, the replacement cost is really expensive.

thanks for posting the pics up, and thanks for pm'ing me. i think i'll have to wait a bit until i have the funds to go with aftermarket air for now. i am actually planning to go with aimgain as well, and they are alot cheaper than kbreak and more parfume that's for sure. good look with the rest of the build. i'm glad to see more 460's putting in work and getting up on japan's level.

How much more adjustment down do you have on the collars? Just wondering if it'll go lower.

Yes, it will go lower. My installer stated that he can have my LS sitting on the ground but the ride would be really rough due to the limitation of the air struts not expanding far enough above the rims.

I'm curious as to what Drew did in order to trick the computers into thinking the stock suspension was still connected. Any details regarding this?

Drew stated, "Everything must remain plugged in and bolted on for the sensors to still read. There is a suspension relay in the engine compartment that can be taking apart. Once it is taking apart, you can disrupt the contact point allowing the system to still think its working."

Interesting. Sounds simultaneously vague and a bit complex for those who aren't electronically inclined. Could be the solution though for all those who are still having error codes with aftermarket air.

Or maybe people with error codes after replacing OEM air could have a Lexus dealer disable it? When I was researching this, I spoke with my Lexus service advisor and he stated that they could disable the error codes for a small fee.
