Taking my 2012 gts, to a show, gotta prep it tho :? I'm thinking about maybe dropping it, I know there are springs, do any of you guys know if there is an air ride package that will fit the kizi?

I don't know of any aftermarket suspension kits for the Kizashi other than the German KWs. Not even the JDM brands seem to make kits for the Kizashi. However, the KW kit is not sold in the US and it's only for the FWD models. You'd have to order them from Europe if interested. Some of our European members have these KWs and praise them.
I've never heard of air ride kits for this car.

Any and all realistic option are going to require DIY. I have a set of H&R springs I'm willing to sell. Air ride wouldn't be too difficult although its going to require cutting and welding. Still pondering that for the long run but currently building a coil setup

The KW kit lowers the car according to people who have it.

Chances are you'll never get your hands on the KW kit. I've only ever seen 2 sets in circulation. You're best bet with out serious modification is to buy lowering springs and swap out your current springs for them

It's a complete kit for all four corners. Struts and shocks with springs.
I agree with kconklin33 that you'll be really hard-pressed to get your hands on them unless you have a contact in the UK or better yet, Germany.

Here's the link for the specific set.

Are those for just the springs?
