Talking Air Suspension

Hi Everyone, I'm sure you can guess my name and vehicle from my username but if you can't I'm Dave and I have a 2002 E53 3.0i. I really love my x5 despite an array of issues from a non-working passenger door handle to intermittent starting (I'll make another post about that). I have a strong urge to lower it; I love the appearance of lowered SAVs and I'd appreciate the sportier handling. I know that my model only has the stock air suspension in the back and I'm curious if anyone has any suggestions on going about adding air suspension to the front and how to control the ride height. Any and all feedback is appreciated.

Honestly if you are looking to lower your SAV it will make more sense to delete rear air suspension rather than the opposite IMO.

But if you really love challenges this is the high level difference between single (EHC) and two-axle air suspension(EHC 2)
