    Morning 8P people.

    I thought I'd ask this here as know at least one of you with air ride (N8?) over the other sections.

    What is ride like on air ride?
    Is it any thing like normal suspension, sport, bogo or even Coil overs?
    Apart from the height, what else can you adjust?
    Does it work the same way as you see it in movies or rap videos (lack of a better example)?

    How does your bushes fair with the lowering and raising?
    I know bushes are meant to be tightened up when in the rest position (or what ever its called) but on air ride, it don't have that position does it?

    Apart from replacing the shocks/springs with air bags, what else is replaced when fitting or modified?
    What happens to the arch liners when you lower the car fully?

    I think that's it.
    Sorry if they are daft or simple question.

    Can you adjust height whilst you're driving? (is it safe to etc) ...seems a bit of a pain to have to stop to raise your ride when you reach a speedbump!

    i have a question also, when lifting the car on a scissor lift or jacking the car up i know the bags arent supposed to be operated without being loaded, im assuming that jacking would create the same condition

    I was under the impession that 'rap-video hopping' etc would result in bent chassis...

    Yes you can adjust it anytime, yes it is safe. It's one button to raise it, takes 1 second.

    It's fine Phil, no problems.
    Air ride isn't hydrolics.
