AIR CYLINDERS vs AIR BAGS

Hey, I know a lot of you guys know some good info on this topic. So please post all you know that can help my decision. I am so tired of scraping the pavement so I figure since my car is not lowered any and it does this I need some method of lifting the car up and then puttin it back down for shows and show off purposes lol

you are going to need way more pressure with cylinders to get the front up. They will need to be rebuilt sometime in thier lifetime, i believe that the seals inside go bad after a while, and some are not rebuildable. Is your bird a daily driver?, you could go with the cylinders, they are cheaper than the bag setup for our cars, but you should look for cylinders with internal upper and lower bumpstops. This helps them last longer. I actually tried them and didn't like the ride, mabey it was because I didn't use an accumulator, plus I felt that they weren't good enough for a daily driver. I now have the airwave bags coming in the mail sometime this week. They are now 399.99. Not much more than the cylinders.
hope this helps.

EDIT: you can find the airwaves at http://www.truckn-store.com
