I'm pretty much sure about failing on pure bags, as Locals don't have much of a hassle in this case, the lexus in your question..

The thing is that the technical inspectors are not informative and only know the stock stuff or know and are told to disallow such things, my undertanding, so anything that doesn't look standard, they are about to start marking & barking, unless the ride belongs to locals or wasta is involved....

GLuck on your query with those low riders....but I think hey might belong to a local...

Lexus LS I believe comes with OEM hydro suspension, and all you have to do is add a controller to be able to go up and down.(its very slow) But its still the same setup as factory = Pass

I tried talking to LAP57 about converting my coilovers into bags, but they weren't excited about it.. Maybe I should try somewhere else..
Are you sure the car won't pass if I have an air suspension?! I see a lot of crazy low lexus' on the road, usually parked. So I think they're on bags.. I will try and ask one of them :grin:

My only concern is the air tank and the compressors.. my trunk isn't exactly spacious :$

The only thing that matters when you go to pass your car is if you kept your car as stock as possible...your chances of passing get thinner by the amount of things you'v added

ofcorse these guys need special training on passing cars here but we are far far away from that day.

There's a Lexus GS on the ground near my house, I'll try and talk to the owner. But I think you guys are right, there's noway a non-lexus will pass with bags. I guess I have to try the new air system (bagless) :grin:

Have you guys heard of the cup kit? :!:

you know...technically you dont even need a coilover to do this setup...and its not like a coilover airbag setup is going to allow you to track race...i just gave my OEM shocks to this guy who has 15 years of expirience in air bagging...should be done in a few days as long as he works on it :arrow:

(keeping in mind this is all about street stance and NO track performance)

will update soon :grin:

I don't think it is a good idea to do this to your OEM Shocks, Coilovers can handle being driven with a low ride height, but OEM shocks won't. They will fail sooner than any coilover, it is worse than putting lowering springs on your OEM shocks.

AND Please PM the details of this guy/shop and how much is he charging you? :$
luckily I still didn't order anything :grin:

Good luck with your build!

If I were you I'd choose the Job Design kit:

And the WORK Varianza V5S wheels (They work will with the chrome Grille and parts on the bumper & I love the deep lip):

Just one thing, which size wheels are you planning on getting? You need something with a large lip, the ones in the picture are 19" wheels. To my knowledge, the lower the size (and width) of a wheel, the smaller the lip will be. Just wanted you to pay attention to this.
