Default Lexus isf air suspension

Greetings

I am pretty sure i am going to get much negative things by post this question but here i go

I am leaning towards to getting a decent air suspension instead of kw coilover dont ask why -_-
so i called and did some research around
There are few owners from 2014 lexus is or other lexus owner used a air rex airbag strut n managment system cost about 5 grand
Is there any other good product can u guys give me some info please ?

I would go with a good set of coilovers and get a aircup set. If you want to raise and lower the car driving over big bump and driveways.

^Much agreed. I've seen some of their products on other vehicles, and it really works well. I was contemplating the phantom cup kit at one point before I got coilovers, but if I wasn't concerned about going to the track or anything where a static suspension is required, it would be a great choice to go with.

Been contemplating this "air cups" Idea for a while but I was if it is worth it. Over full air

I already have BC/w swift springs. Can I just buy the air cups? Possible?

The cup kit is the route id go if i already had coil overs you keep the full performance of coil overs but the ability to adjust your height to go over bumps, plus there is no rubber bag to fail its just two precisely machined cups fitted together. You can contact the company and send in your coil overs to be fitted with the cup kit this is the best option so that it is warrantied. I know plenty of people around my area who have it and its awesome. Just more expensive since paying for the coil overs plus the cupping kit.

Get airrex. Drive low, park lower.
