air bags = no performance quality, used mainly for show cars

coilovers = ultimate performance suspension components

So are you looking to dump your car and not really make the best of your suspension? If so, then I guess air bags........

If you want to have the ability to adjust your ride height to whatever you want, and maintain performance quality then I suggest coilovers.

i really want coil overs, but i don't want to have to drive on grass to avoid speed bumps :)
its takes a while to raise your car up with air bags anyways :) its not like hydrolics where you can pop your car up in a sec :)

Actually you can...Around here, there are cars that pop up fast and some are just slow..It all depends on how much air presure you have going to each bag and you whole set up

Basically the air bags are for show. I have a few friends with air bags and they are pretty phat but if you want performance go with the coil overs because they will help your suspension alot. If you juist want to be a show car go with the air bags.

i think airbags are pretty sweet, but they have their place, and that place is not on a prelude.

please dont put airbags on a prelude...the handling will be the same, if not worse.

for the same price you could definitely get a set of Tein HAs, the ultimate coilover setup.
