    I figure I'd start a dedicated thread for aftermarket air suspension for those of us wanting to discuss in more detail.

    Is your car RWD? Curious as to how they did the front struts.

    Yup, RWD, struts are like coilovers replacing springs with air bags.

    Interesting, wonder if they could use the front drive unit cavity on the RWD instead of the frunk.

    For those wondering, I just measured my AWD in the front. The stock clearance from the strut base to the axle is about 40mm, factory ride height with oem tires on Aeros is 70mm fender gap.
