Thank you Grecian. Your update is helpful. The way the mags and reviews write it's like I'm going to get a jolt down my spine each time I hit a pothole....Keep in mind that mags like technology on cars and the "enhanced placebo" effect will make them wish for the top technology whether they have tried it or not.
The ride, without the air suspension and 21" is very good. Where the air suspension MAY have an advantage is that it may absorb some road irregularities better (again, without meaning to write that the regular suspension's quality is not good), provide slightly less body lean against tight curves and, of course, it allows you to modify the ride height of the vehicle especially in off road and dynamic modes.
