Bolt-in air bags

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by 60olds98, Oct 3, 2011.

  1. Is there such a thing? I have a 1960 Olds that desparately needs to be bagged but I ain't got no money. Any suggestions?

    X2......Its your cars suspension! If you cant afford to do it properly right now, make it a goal to shoot for. I spend more time "rebagging" inproper installs then I do starting from scratch.

    X3....Get a big ol beer mug and throw your loose change in it if you have to to save up a little extra. (Plus drinking less beer will save some money as well :rolleyes:). A 1960 Olds will make a really cool mild custom. Don't screw it up by dicking up the suspension and running it into a lamp post.

    Good Luck

    however, for a budget build it's a different story. I bagged my '59 Biscayne(see my pics) for roughly $1,000 and it was pretty much all bolt on with the exception of relocating the shocks.

    picked up the brackets from Canada http://www.airassisted.ca
    *check on the metal fabrication tab on the left. i paid $99 for the front and $99 for the rear. if yours don't show, pick up the phone and yap at them...that doesn't cost a dime.

    The bag setup came from right here on the HAMB(kustombuilder). the cat's name is Mike Brimm. He took care of me with a sweet set up and he's easy to work with. all brand new and kicked ass.

    Good luck with all that.
