As a note on why regular cars don't use air ride.
Initial Expense, short service life (they Last about as long as tires and cost about the same).
Many cars came with them from the factory, easiest way to pick them out is to look for the cars that are now way low out back.
Few off top of head ls400 optional, Lincoln mk8, Lincoln navigator, and many Cadillacs.

Long ago at fords booth at SEMA I saw a converted f-150 with in board brakes, I asks an engineer about them, his answer was to comply with sregulations requiring friction brakes at all 4 corners, may be different now, but they went through great lengths back then
