    I been exchanging emails with Tom Parkinson from airbagit.com--they specificly design each of their kits to match factory top and lower mounts for the struts/shocks/springs. Basically; they should be capable to build any kit for any car.

    After taking some pics and measurments of the OEM suspension setup on my 05 STS V6 equipped with only "soft ride"--it should be a pretty straight forward setup to install the air suspension.

    Here is some info he sent me in an email--very informative IMO:

    " This kit here is a great start for your vehicle. It comes with everything you need to get started. There are many ways that we can put these kits together and if you call me here at the shop I can tailor make this kit to suit your needs and more importantly your budget. I would love to assist you in your build. If you have any questions at all please do not hesitate to ask. I look forward to hearing from you soon. Have a great day.

    I will state, however; it's been a week since I've heard from him--I hope to hear back soon.

    Another option, may be using AirLift's universal kits but you will in fact have to make your own top and lower mounts.


    I NEED MORE INFO ON THIS!!!! I have ordered tons of stuff from airbagit in the past with mini trucks I just hope the ride will be sturdy enough because most bagged sedans are coil over air struts and my buddies KSport Evo X rides as good as my stock STS but only because the air struts still have coils!

    It's a pioneer kinda thing--he forwared some pics I sent him of my stock suspension and said it shouldn't be a prob for his guys who fabricate. The rears would be a combo of airbag spring and a custom lowering strut/shock--the fronts I would like to go with a triple bellow true airstrut but that shall be determined by the experts.

    As of right now--I'm waiting on Mr. Parkinson's guys feedback.
