thats like asking... Does anyone have 10 grand to waste on a full hydro system in a car? Sure I know you can get a full kit for 5 grand, but they have to be custom installed. Plus you need to maintain them also... imo its not worth it. Also I think air suspensions arn't worth it either. just my opinion though.

you can make air ride go faster than some hydro's and you can make some hydro kits really slow if you don't use too many pumps. They can be just as safe on a car as air, but its just a lot messier if they leak.

Hydros also seem to ride a lot harder than the air would...

easystreet makes a really good kit but the rear won't go very low
AIM makes a kit for the rear that goes low but their fittings suck if you bought a whole kit
(had to replace mine from them after a month)
Air Ride Tech will have the best kit if they ever finish it
