Question Bridgestone Praxis suspension???

Anyone hear anything about this new system for the STI. It's sold at the tirerack. about $3500 big ones though Looks and sounds like a sick setup.

Ya I saw it in the tire rack,track mag in my mail.I would'nt want to go lower or firmer(except for track racing).I would like to bring it up higher for off road and the winter
storms,also it would be nice to soften the ride for long highway driving on bad highjways(live inPA,worst roads in the USA) but like you said the money factor,I would like to try the shocks that were in the same flyer on my older classics,they are adjustable
never been in a car that had them,would be nice to be able switch damping etc. from inside the car( harder,soft) on an old pontiac
goat. Matt !!

If this suspension setup is as good as they say and LASTS, it is indeed something that is awesome. If they priced it 1g less, it would probably sell like crazy. One problem though, no one knows a damn thing about it so who knows if that would even help.

Anyone?

It seems people are skeptical about the whole air suspension thing, since they used to suck. Being that this is very new technology, I am interested. It seems like a rather involved install with air compressors and whatnot. Might be heavy as hell too. No one know anything about this setup yet. You have to take tirerack's review (and reps) w/ a grain of salt since they sell the damn things. i don't think anybody has independently tested it yet.
In car ride height adjustment......sick. Apparently you can raise it as well, rallyx mode (+.5 to +.75 inches)......another thread (http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/sho...ghlight=praxxis)
about this had a tirerack rep saying you could......that would be a deciding factor if this system can stand with DMS and the boys. The extra dough might be worth it.......

Someone (with $$ to burn) buy it and tell us about it!

Yep your right,about the old ones.It seams this is the new way to go,Bmw uses the same principal in there big sedans 7,6,and new 5 series also the Maybach and Mercedes
is using air ride systems,Audia just put it on the new A8, and Volkswagon puts in the Tureg,Porshe(I do not remember if they put it in the Cheyanne).Anyway I think this will get
alot more popular and the prices will come down as other companies come out with there own systems.All the car mag reviewers like it, say it works great on heavy cars,so maybe it is real good on 3200 lbs.Matt
