I know this may be the opposite direction you want to go in, but I have a lot of experience with air ride. I did a custom drop in my Acura and I had to do a lot of welding/customizing for fitment... so I know more than i should have. I would say whether you are looking for low or high rides it all comes down to the quality of the system.
#1) get compressors that run @100% cycle (dont shut off due to voltage variations, they wont overheat)
#2) Dont get too big of tank
#3) Get big enough airlines and high quality, dont cheap out
#4) Get the proper cylinder/bag. If you get a cheap one, it will leak and you will be paying big in the end
I had a complete EAI kit with 2 chrome viair 100% duty compressors
I used 1/2 lines because the front end was so heavy and it allowed for faster air transfer. I vowed never to do air ride again, but I honestly miss it. I blew out cylinders because of pressur problems, but EAI always replaced them for free.
If there was a set up for the Commander where I could get a good ride quality with NO air in the cylinder I would do it (with air bags I think you can somehow still utilize a stock strut) but I am not an expert with 4x4s
I purchased my first car about a year ago, a used 2006 Jeep Commander. She's been a great car, handled the mountains and trails of north Georgia, so I'm looking to give her back some love. I've been doing a massive amount of research on what I should get, and I've settled on a Rocky Roads...
