Ride Quality - "Air Ride" vs Coil over

I'm getting close to letting go of my LX due to the ride quality. No one wants to ride with me. I recently installed new Bilsteins and CC plates with no improvement. The car was lowered with "C" springs before I bought it.

Which of the two will yeild the best ride quality?
Air Ride or a coil over with low springs rates?

Anyone with experience or knowledge please chime in.

install full length subframe connectors. That will tighten up the chassis a lot. Also, buy a set of FRPP front a-arms. They have better bushings and balljoints. Doing that made a hugh difference on my car.
Switch back to a nice set of 15" rims. The taller sidewalls do make a big difference, as well, as opposed to running 16's or 17's. Besides, it's a perfect excuse to spring for a set of Draglites and some skinny and fatty Mickey Thompsons... :D
