Gotta love bags. No matter what car they are on they are sexy. They suck in the north east though. I have a Q45 bagged in Beantown and the salt a cold weather kill them, gotta store it for the winter. But damn to they draw attention driving down the road going front-back-side-to-side

nofinga - I will agree with you 1000%. Probably one of the coolest toys when it works but it never works 100% with nothing to worry about. I will also never do it again. Wont even think about it.

PS. There are air ride suspensions that are meant for nice rides mot people put them on classics but mine and I'm assuming nofinga's is setup for fun.

Nah bro. My 02 has custom upper and lower control arms and kept the AWD, bagged from front to rear on 24s and it rides great at driveable level. If I allow more air in the bags, I can get it sit about 4" inches from wheel well to tires in the front and 7-8" in the rear, then it rides like the truck is stock. It evens tows good with with it sitting about an inch from tire to well. I had the first bagged Escalade on the streets and only a few of them out there have gone as far as mine. Its a garage queen now.

Even some lowering kits will give you a poor ride like you mentioned. It just depends on the kit. With air ride, a lot of it matters on who the fabricator is. Most of the Escalades I have driven with lowering kits didn't feel better than mine... they feel super stiff. Point being, if its done right, then you can get a smooth ride from it.

I like this 07 Escalade in the video.

Well not only the type of kit but what actually changes the lowering. My Denali was dumped and it rode like a stock Cadi!!!! It all depends on the set up.
I'd like to get baggs but I think it'll be a waste of money. Anyhow my 64' Impala is lifted so I'm happy.
