    Aftermarket Suspension

    Hi

    I was thinking about upgrading my suspension to an aftermarket system, I want something where I have can change the ride height, and feel of the suspension, one that has a system that is compatable with the onboard computers in my car so I don't have warrning lights and messages flashing all over the car. Of course the system has to better than the current one by that I mean more comfortable, and improves the cars handling.

    Any ideas? Oh by the way I drive a 2008 STS V8, air ride I believe.

    This kind of setup will not interface to your current dashboard setup. Basically you have to bypass the factory setup. A regular airbad setup will not have as much performance as your current setup when it comes to handling. The ride quality will not be as good either. I have installed many air ride and hydraulics set ups.

    Actually, for a 2008 "STS", you would be better off posting way up ^^^ in the new model "STS" threads. There's a lot of action up there............but the ghost is correct - aftermarket and airbag suspensions, particularly for these electronically controlled vehicles, are a far cry from the real factory suspensions.

    Those airbag suspension setups are more for the lowrider guys like me (although I dislike bags and perfer hydraulics)
