Coming from someone who has an air suspension for a totally different reason, they are a pain in the arse. Expensive, especially when you consider that in order to control it you will need some sort of valves and switches with air pressure gauges.

Many high end set ups have memory settings where its a simple function of pressing a button to reach a pre determined pressure. But over time the maintenance becomes the hassle. The bags rarely break, but the valves freeze, it is nearly impossible to get a leak proof system and of course the air compressor is noisy, not to mention you need space to store it plus the air tank.

Some have done dive tanks which have 2000 psi and it lasts quite some time with minimal hassle except for the ocassional trip to the dive shop.

So unless it is an oem application that is currently trouble free, all you are asking for is something really cool that requires constant vigilance.
