Mein Auto: X5 4.8is, 550i
Air Suspension Conversion to Standard Suspension

I've successfully removed my air ride suspension:

Well, I recently purchased a 05 X5 4.8is with only 52k mls. Within only days of buying it I had trouble with the air suspension, which started out as a bag front strut and escalated to a bad computer module and then air compressor. So I decided to get rid of the air suspension.

I will post a write up later, but for now, for those interested. I have successfully removed the air suspension and replaced with OEM Shocks/Struts/Springs. X5 sits about the same height as the middle setting on the air ride and rides about the same. Maybe a tad stiffer... Next step is to get the air ride removed from the computer, so the error goes away on the dash.
