Angry Bad baggin experience on 05 civic

I reacently bagged my 05 honda civic. I't has been nothing but a nightmare. Not because of poor instalation, I'v done many air suspension installs, but poor product.
I purcased a set of air struts, front and rear, from a company called AIM INDUSTRIES. Also known as AIRBAGIT . COM. When the struts arrived the rear struts(800.00$) were great. The front struts(800.00$), on the other hand, were way to tall. I called AIM they told me that the struts were correct. After pictures and countless e-mails they finaly agread to replace the struts with lower ones. Two weeks passed and the new struts arrived. I installed the struts and everything was great. It sat low when it was aired out and road great.
Two months into having the civic bagged the right front strut broke. I called AIM INDUSTRIES they told me to remove the struts and send them in. I did. Finnaly after two weeks they told me the wouldn't warrenty them. They said they were installed wrong. Pissed off I spent another 400.00$ to get the front struts replaced. 1/2 the price of new, but still new. I told them to make the new struts the same height as the old. They said "no problem."
Two weeks later the struts arrived and they were wrong!!!! To tall like the first set. Called AIM and went round and round with them again. Two week latter they finaly told me to send the struts back. I did. Two weeks latter my new struts arrived and gues what they were WRONG!!!! Only had 2" of travel. When they normaly have 4-5". So back to AIM for another shot. A month later the struts arrive and are great. Sit low ride great. Two weeks after installation the left front strut broke. Sent the struts back to AIM INDUSTRIES.
This is where I stand now. The original rear struts are still in the car with stock stuts up front. Won't warrenty the struts or give my money back (800.00$), and now won't send me back the broken struts.
THIS GOES OUT TO ANYONE WHO IS THINKING OF BAGGIN a 05 HONDA CIVIC. DONT USE AIM INDUSTRIES OR AIR BAG IT . COM.
Would appriciate any advice, Questions or any other experiences.
IF ANYONE KNOWS OF A REPUTIBLE AIR STRUT COMPANY PLEASE LET ME KNOW.... Thanks all for listening to my bitch.
