Air Struts Recommendation

Anybody know currently what's the best Air Struts for the E9X Platform?

I've run air many times in the past, I've used many different brands, but, each car is different, so just want to find out which one seems to be the best.

I recall reading about the rear Airlift Bags "twisting"? Was this fixed in a newer revision or anything?

Thanks in advance!

I had this problem that I was SURE was Airlift's fault.

Wound up being the OEM BMW subframe bushings. I actually tried to get in touch with everyone who had Airlift on their E92Ms, and a bunch of them had the same problem.

I went through two sets of bags, saw that the retainer plate was hitting the axle and it was making a hideous grinding noise under load.

Got aluminum/delrin subframe bushings, and the problem was gone.
