A 30-series tire on a 20" rim? Holy low profile. Have fun driving your SUV like a sports car over potholes and ****.

they aren't bad about potholes around here and the ones that are still here i know about.

driving a bagged car that was less then 1" off the ground kinda got me ready for this.

I wouldn't really consider that a SUV Aken...

Should have opted for the black one. How do you feel about suicide doors on the back? That'd be sick.

Ha ha, it was just a thought. I sat in one the other day and it felt small.

What other lights are you going to do?

If you were driving the car with 1" of clearance you were stressing the suspension far more then you should have been. That is not how air struts are designed to be used.

Has some good potential, can't wait to see what it ends up like. :D


P0rk, so are you saying they're not meant to be driven at a constant low PSI level, and are more for riding slightly lowered and only dumping super low for parking and short times while driving?
Just kinda curious as to what you're getting at.

Every time the bag bottoms out, it puts a ton of stress on the strut and the mounting point of the strut. At a ride height of 1", that is happening constantly. Not to mention the alignment is going to seriously be off riding that low, which puts stress on ALL of the front end suspension and steering components.
