Depends on what you want the air for... IMO the cups are WAY too damn slow!!! At least with the UAS kit you can slow it down with reducers...

I'd go with the cup kit. I am planning to save up for em.
rides low like coilovers, with the convenience of raising it up.

There's always Air Runners as well, but come with a pretty hefty price.

Last time I talked with Platinum VIP they told me the GS could not fit the cup kit without modification. The new UAS revision doesn't rub, but it's still bags, they can pop. The cup kit doesn't HAVE to be low.

Just consider what you're going for:

1) How low do you want to go?
2) When will you be low (parked only or slammed driving)?
3) How much time will you spend to maintain the suspension?
4) How fast do you want to change height?
5) When do you want to change your height?

UAS you can do yourself. PVIP's kit is real nice, everything they do is top notch.

Do you have the specified coilovers for the cups already? If not, the price bumps up to $3900.

I've talk to PVIP. The only modification they will need to do is the rears... Everything is plug and play. The cup kit is universal.

1) I want to go low... Real low.
2) Parked and driving not so slam as park. To a point where i can still turn.
3) I have all the time in the world at the moment till july 30th work 8-5 m-s and home that's all. don't go out much anymore.
4) Doesn't matter as long it can raise up and down, but not too slow.
5) not while driving of course.
