Had a cavalier bagged for 2g's and had many, many problems with it and was professionally installed. I ended up taking it off and parting it out after a few months of headaches. I say 2500 isnt all that bad really. What kind of ride is this going on?

My bad, I should have asked if you went there already... I figured someone there would be able to better answer your question and more important, point you in the right direction. There are a lot of Buick mechanics that know their stuff. Sux you would come up empty handed from a Regals forum. :crap:

I have never seen a new style regal bagged. I have seen many older ones though. I kinda think it would be strange seeing a more luxury type car bagged. That is just IMO though.

yea, I have the AIR RIDE TECHNOLOGIES air system on my car, and it was a complete bolt on kit. It took me a day to install it, and turned out awesome. I think the kit shipped was around $2500....well made and worth it.
The cool factor is amazing:cool:

get some air zenith comps, and 1/2 lines, 1/2 valves for up , and 3/8 for down. $2500 doesnt sound too bad if its good stuff. hell, ive got about $1200 tied up in my rear setup alone on my truck, and thats just parts :)

had air ride on my s-10, very cool with the wow factor, but wears off after a while, i drove it through 3 michigan winters with no problems, all in all id say I had about that much into it, and my dad and I installed it

not a bad price, depends on what they use, see what parts that 2500 includes...i spent almost 2k just on parts for mine...and my friends charging 600 to install it all. 550 of that 2k was spent on a 4 link though that i regret, but its already done so...

but airbags are so tight, i wouldnt hesitate bagging a ride :)

mines need a serious restoration, i think i posted pics before i got to find them, i want it slammed on 20" boyd-coddington's. I would have to find some pics of mines, but i know they have some real nice ones on cardomain that are bagged. If i went 22's i would probably still try to bag it, but im suppose to go pick up my engine for it today so i can tear it all down and rebuild it.

$2500 is a nice deal. Check my CarDomain link, I got pics of my truck laid out.


Read what people say about each brand. DEFINATELY read reviews. Being bags are more popular on trucks, go to truck sites and read up on them. showtruckscene.com is a good start. You will learn whats worth having and whats a waste.

i think when we first got it about 9 years ago we paid $900 and it ran well with a slight knock, but we had pulled the engine and got rid of the engine cause it was cracked somewhere i think and it has been sitting for like 8 years and now that i have grown up ive taken the annitiative to take the restoration into my own hands.

I wouldnt mind finding one for parts, G/L on your find for one with no rust, i often check ebay

Go spend a day looking around WWW.StreetSourceMag.COM.

There are over 100k members and at any given moment, nearly 6.5K active.

And there are more shops active on that forum, than any other.

My friend got his truck bagged for like 1,900$ I'm not sure what kind of bags they are but it's got 1/2 valves. Really nice and smooth ride...
