Well.........I could understand if you had hydrolics on it so it was bouncing up and down but airbags are gradual so I wouldn't think it would be as rough??? It would be more for looks unless I could get some suspension that would drop it about 1" or so and improve the handling aroud corners!!

FWD is totally different than RWD when it comes to lowering and such. I think 1" drop springs would be about as far as I'd go, but if you're looking for handling, you need to get the FE2 suspension off an SSEi FIRST. Then go from there. It'* like you're jumping right over the first logical step.

Get all 4 springs and both swaybars with their centerlinks. Use new endlinks on the sways. I don't think you'll be disappointed, and it'* likely to drop you by about a 1/2".

going up and down on airbags can not be any worse for the car than going over a speed bump. If you want the car to handle better DO NOT get airbags... Air ride suspension destroys the cornering ability of the car.
