Cheap and Air Suspension is an oxymoron. If you are going to go air, it wont be cheap, unless you consider $5K+ cheap. Anyway, IMHO to airbag a Lexus with Airrunner there is no better place than Revision Audio. If you are going for that VIP Style look, Samson at Revision Audio has the most experience and is the best. Anyone can sell an air suspension for cheap, but many of them can't install them well. Of course there are others out there that do top notch, but I'm just saying Revision is among those at the top. There are just too many fly by night cheap wannabe VIP Style shops popping up now days. Revision Audio is tried and tested and award winning proven.

Well obviously of course air suspension ain't cheap. Who said it was? Well do know an estimate of how much revision sells it and install? That would be a good help.

The kit itself would be about $4K for the general basic kit. If you upgrade to the digital gauges and digital controller that would be about another $1500. I'm not sure how much he charges for installation though. One of the reasons why I like Revision Audio is because their installations are ultra clean. They also have good customer service. They do it all in house, so if something does go wrong they can fix it right there, or order whatever parts needed as they are one of the authorized dealers. Makes warranty work much easier. Personally, I like it when the shop or business owner is also the installer. Too me, that makes him more mindful of the work being performed since it is his name, business and reputation on the line.

What I would do is make a list of potential shops you might want to buy from, call each of them up, or email or whatever, then ask them questions not only about price, but about how they go about installing the kit. How do they route the wires and air lines? Do they have any pictures of past installations? Are they willing to show you pictures of installations as it progressed behind the panels where you normally can't see? You can hide a lot of crappy work behind panels, but good installations shop (Not just airbags but anything) will still do top quality and clean work even in areas you can't see. That separates real established shops from the fly by night internet sales type of shops. Some of these fly by night shops don't even know the difference between an Impact Driver and an Impact Gun/Wrench.

Yup, just met Samson, and he is super cool. Getting airrunner installed by him. When I get the car back, I'll post pics of his work so you can see. You should go down and talk to him in person, he explains everything.
