Unless you go with aftermarket air suspension. Then there's 1000 reasons why you "should" do it.

the sticker is funny. bags make life a lot more convenient for driving as well as being able to park the car really. Some enthusiast may, however, think coils are the only way to go.

And I laugh at those who do and get high centred on a speed bump while I up & down and cruise by.
I don't subscribe to the whole street cred nonsense about coilovers. I've done it and its a PITA.

^ lol well thats where the credibility comes from. Not to say either one is better, but yes air does give you that flexibility whereas someone on coils must deal with it constantly thus the "street cred" you mentioned. Either way = Low

I think all of us on coils have them simply because bags are expensive. My reasoning anyway.

Though, I drive with my chassis about 3" from the ground (my Lex is my daily), and I've yet to have any real trouble getting around. Mostly thanks to recently getting my exhaust tucked

I'm considering a suspension change and my thought is coils. I'm not looking to lay frame and the loss of trunk space for a compressor is not an option. I barely have enough trunk space now as well as losing the spare tire would present more issues. Now if any of this can be run with the compressor and valves on either side of the rear wheel wells/gas tank it is a no loss of trunk space. Not to mention super clean since none of the hardware is visible. Still a far costly option for me to consider seriously.
