Default Active Air Ride System

Hey guys,

I am wondering if the Air Runner, Airrex, K-Sport air suspension kits are an Active Air Ride system? Meaning does the system stiffen up in cornering or aggressive driving.

I am unsure about the setup of which is the best system for longevity & use. I would like for the system to do more than just go up & down when parked. I'm looking for the best system available for my GS.

From what little bit of research I've done (I'm also going to be going air in the future), I'm pretty sure that the majority of systems out now are semi-active. However, I don't believe that any of them actually stiffen up during cornering or aggressive driving, although I could be mistaken...

Aftermarket air ride bags don't have that. I think only Mercedes has the ABC (Active Body Control), which they use a hydraulic strut and a lot of sensors to take measurements.
