Hmmmmm thats actually very interesting, $2200, for an airbag suspension. Ive been wanting it, just for the fact so i can be a a*** with it, and park my car in the thing called "the pit" (basically a small reserve has been made into a small dirt car park, one of those square gutters which i cannot get up without damaging the front bar or underbody), so i could get up there and slam it to the ground so ppl look and think WTF howd he get in there.
Actually i just want it for cruising.

What was that qoute for though, was it actually for a falcon, including all the bits and pieces and fitting etc?
Asked around today with some of the guys that are into the mini-trucks and they all think the price is frickin amazingly cheap.

$2,200 will hardly get you the kit.
If you want it donw properly, you need to upgrade the lines, get a bigger tank, bigger compressor, and usually a decent controller.
Thats'll take it past 3k, plus getting it fitted, wont be cheap if you dont do it yourself.
Also, unless it has been done, a few months ago, the guys in Melb, or any of the stores around AUS, still havent got the front sorted out. Unless they have sourced it all from the states, like a guy i spoke to said they were going to.
If you can get it all for that price, and it does what you want it to, then go for it!
