Ive put about 1500 miles over the past month on my new "bag-overs", as I like to call them, and all I can say is AWESOME! They handle just like a true coilover but better!
These are the much awaited coilover style front air bag struts with up to 3 degree adjustible camber plates and 30 adjustible dampening settings!

I have had several different suspension types on my Shelby: stock, lowering springs, high performance coilovers, air bags and then these high performance trackable coilover style air bags.

So with several suspension styles I can honestly say that these new coilover style air bags are the best suspension I have ever had in my GT500 hands down!
I especially love the adjustibility of these as its my daily driver and having a quality ride is important not only on the daily grind but also being able to take it to the track and make some simple adjustments to the dampening via a knob at the top of the coilover and have a great track suspension.

Out of curosity I weighed then vs. stock struts and the Air Lift ones are MUCH lighter! Stock is about 19.0 lbs ea and the Air Lift ones are only 13.5 lbs ea! Thats about 11.0 lb total savings! Also, I got a little over 1/2" drop from where I was before.

Here are some pics (sorry but the weather wasnt cooperating and I really wanted to get these installed lol)

Thanks! There is a knob/key that goes into the top of the strut shaft. In this picture it looks like a torx bit to receive the knob/key. You just place it in there and turn to the left or right clicks as you desire. Then ut the knob back in your glove box or whereever. Really simple and no tools needed.

Oh so you can adjust the strut as well as the air pressure in the bags? How do you add the air pressure?

Yup, the strut dampening is adjustible as mentioned but you also have the air bag with is ajustible for ride height by air pressure. Air pressure is adjusted by either a switch or a button depending upon your air management setup you go with
