Its cool if thats what you want to do..I can see it being nice for a show car maybe...like be able to drive it somewhere at regular ride height, but once you arrive be able to drop it down to where ever you want it...I bet most people are turned off by the price tag.

Ive been building air setups for about 10 years and the price tag is extremely high. Especially when you see what you get from them.. If you priced out what your getting off Ebay or one of the 1000s of web site that deal in Mini truck parts, you would find you would spend half to build the same thing. I bagged my Malibu and i love it very nice ride and it low..(im not much of a drag racer so it works for me.) I built the exact same kit they have on there site for less than half but i upgraded many components. and it wall all basically bolt in.

The lower rear control arms wil bind the daylights out of the suspension...

i disagree as you can see i could go lower in the rear before it begins to bind i have bump stops in place to prevent any further drop. but Poly bushing do flex quite abit. so you can get a large amount of rear axel travel before things begin to bind up.

It's not about travel, it's about torsional rotation. The axle needs to allow one end to go up when the other end is down. Poly bushings restrict that rotation too much. Those lower arms are more or less a drag-only setup.
