Looking for a complete kit...

Are the KSport Airtech Suspension System Pro or Basic any good? Is it really a complete kit?

KSport is a complete kit. There's not too much information on it but from what I have heard and seen, they are pretty solid. I'll be installing mine soon, I'll answer any questions you have if possible.

Rides Low is on KSports on his GS and there's another member in Florida about to run a KSport setup.

What size lines are you guys using? Cause I just noticed how slow AR is and I don't like that.

I'll be running 1/4 inch. You're running 1/2 inch right? Jay was talking to me about your line setup. What size line does AR use?

It'll be fine to run a basic kit, You can probably get it for a good price too.

Theres Airrunner you can look at. A members selling it for 3400. Somebody on the boards is paying 4300 for their a 2IS KSport Pro kit installed. That's really expensive though.

Those are good prices I think it was cheaper than I was offered, you might wanna hop on a group buy for cheaper though. Remember he charges for paypal too, not sure about shipping. I have a guy waiting for KSport to build a kit for his car, if you want to wait you can hop on a group buy with him and Calviin.

i was going to give a heads up on going side to side with swaybars but after reading the setup olny uses 1/4 line it is not a fast setup. i run 1/2 in line and valves and seen some frends crack their rear glass in the cars. i do love my olds on air but the roads here in mich is not good for it. plus i scrape my fraim everytime i enter my driveway.
