Now that's an awesome setup, now if only you would've substituted Slams for the 'Stones. :head:

g_unit, if you want a nice setup, don't even think about bags until you have at least $3,500 saved up. :read:

Assuming you have a NBS truck, here's some figures for thought

FRONT
$999 for the cool ride with upper & lower control arms
OR
$549 for the cool ride kit alone

BACK
$500 KP Bolt on 4-link
$430 KP Cantilever setup
$150 2 Airbags

Air Mangement
$1099 RidePro-E 4-way

So about $3,200 with the control arms, or $2,800 without

Have you looked around on who's going to do the work, or are you doing it yourself?
I havnt looked into labor or anything yet, i knew some people. i was just asking to get a overall figure of how much it would cost, cause i never heard of anyone talk about a price before. Thanks for the answers.

I fabbed the one on my old dodge. Total cost to the frame was $1100. Just for things I couldn't make myself. I would sudgest scraping things from everywhere you can. Look for old busses and what not that have air suspension, good parts to be had there. That is if you're feeling lucky.

The reality is: It is a MUST that you use quality parts, especially for your hardware. You can't flake out on that. KP, Air Lift, and Air Ride Technologies are some of the companies with the best quality components (4 links and front setups) there is. Now, how much more you spend will rely on how fast you want your setup to be.
You can go with a very mild setup like 1 Viair 450 compressor, 1 5 or 6 gallon tank, 4 valves (SMC's, Parkers, or GC's), 3/8" air line, and some slam specialities or Firestone Air bags (plus switches and guages etc). That'll run you a bit over $2000 w/front setup and KP 4 link. You can add more valves, more comps, more or bigger tanks, and the cost will increase. You can go with an ideal setup like some of the guys here mentioned and spend over $3000 easy. It all depends on how fast you want your setup and how long you want to play around with your switches..

good responses!


valve size is what determines the speed of the bags right?
It's a big factor but not the only one. Line/fitting/bag/tank port sizes as well as type of compressor also have a factor in the speed.
