“I remember back in the early ’90s when I had my 1954 Chevy Bel Air airbagged (modified stock suspension). Despite being overly impressed with having the ability to drop it on the ground when parked, I wasn’t as impressed with the ride quality when it came to cornering—and for quite some time, I’d attributed the extreme amount of “body roll” with the side-to-side air pressure transfer between the ’bags. Well, that was partially true.
Over time, as the air suspension systems evolved in my vehicles, I was able to notice a bit of improvement, but nowhere near the performance of any static-dropped car or truck I owned at the time.
