Airbag or Coil-overs?

Hi all!
I was wondering the pros and cons of airbags vs coil-overs? I want to upgrade the suspension in my 05 ls balt and I've seen both... Any input is great!

The advantages of bags are obvious. You can get as low as you want without worrying about scraping etc. But you won't get any real performance from airbags. It just matters what you are looking for.

Oh ok so bags are less performance than coil overs. I dont care about going too low I just want stiffer and better handling so coilovers it is
