Air ride/bags

Looking into an air ride suspension for the car, but haven't had too much luck with finding a decent kit. I am able and willing to fabricate my own setup, however first I would like to get ideas and opinions from others on where to find a kit and all...

K-sport has no options for mk1 designs sadly. (Totally messed up)

Keep in mind that whatever route I decide to go, the car will need to have the ability to lay frame (or lack there of a a frame) to the ground.

To "lay frame" there will be more modifications needed than a bolt on kit. On my set up, my wheels are the limiting factor in the front but in the back the the bag is the limiting factor. Even with a sleeve set up in the rear, you will still need to rework the rear end.

BaggedSE is probably the closets to "laying frame" that I know. At FR12 for the locus limbo, we had 10 guys in his car and his subframe was just barely scraping the ground.

Check in with AirLift for bags. You can piece together the "air management" side pretty easy.

Already contacted them, they said they don't make them. Kinda false advertising

Yeah I know it's Goin to take all kinda of work, but I'm willing to do it all. I have a shop up here that might hook me up with a custom kit. Fingers crossed
