    Seein as your truck is a halfbreed there is no "silver bullet" kit that's plug and play....best bet is to build your own set up using what you prefer....

    Coincidently I have a 49 AD with a camaro clip that's bagged.....check out my build thread it may give you some ideas.

    Saltys got it right. You might have to spec out exactly what you want and give those directions to the local shop.

    Where is all the bags are for grocery folks?

    we pioneered the air bag game in the early 90's most of us have graduated to classic mods. The front end will be easy just some s10 cups and a couple of dominators. i would 4 link the back. run two viar compressors for 200 psi at least ten gallons of air run 3/8 inch line.
    look these guys up they know there stuff.

    ignore the bs with the grade school kids and look at some builds.

    you can pm me. i bagged my first truck in 95 when there was no kits you just built it. now a days its a credit card and a catalog. so i have a little idea what im talking about.

    The 2 link kit is easy to install . Check the You Tube for jimenez bros customs . The video install will show you and you can do it yourself. We also have front ends for your truck.

    Avoid them, and any entity of the Hoffman Group (Helix), like the plague.

    You get what you pay for, and there is a very solid reason why they are so cheap. Saving money on suspension, or going short on the engineering could be suicide, or homicide.

    Deals too good to be true are. Designs that deviate from from accepted engineering principals should be considered suspect.

    You will find examples of all of these, on this board. Be aware.
