You guys are awesome!!! April 5, 2016
Reviewer: Bruce N. from Seattle, WA  
Thank you so much for allowing my old Lexus to stay on the road just a little longer! I was pretty down after a trip to the dealer, as I knew I could buy another car for what they wanted to repair the air suspension. My father said the kit was easy to install and was good quality. All I know is that the ride is comparable to the air, without the die-at-once threat. Thanks for answering all my questions and getting me back on the road so fast. You guys are awesome!!!
