    New Suspension and Wheels for my E9



    I will go and do a full shoot later this week so expect more photos then, but I thought I'd share the latest on my E9. I bagged it and went with a new wheel setup.



    The suspension is an AirLift universal setup with a sleeve bag and a Chevy 2500 full size front strut in the back. The ride is legitimately phenomenal and rides like a cadillac, far better than I could have hoped for. There was for sure a bit of luck involved.

    The wheels are Rotiform SJCs, 17x8.5 and 17x9. Its as wide as someone could go while laying the car out. The car's inner wells are just so small!

    Anyway, just wanted to share.

    I respect what you do, but not a fan this time. That's a beautiful classic car, IMHO has no business scraping pavement.

    It's on air. It can be at any height he pleases.

    Loved the previous iteration. I feel like both the ride height and wheels have been downgraded in the current setup.

    You guys do realize how air suspension works right?

    The wheels are an opinion thing, although I will say I did love the RS on there.

    Don't worry the collective intelligence of most R&S members are that of a rock.
