Im planning on bagging my truck while in my first semester in college but i know little about the process and suspension work in general. If possible could someone give me a detailed list, or any kind of list of what items i need that way i can get started in getting them. Thanx

Do a search on the internet. A quick list

1. Compressors
2. Air Tank
3. Air Line
4. Air Line Fittings
5. Air line Valves
6. Switches
7. A power source (upgrade your battery)
8. Four Bags
9. Upper and lower bag mounts for the front and back
10. C-Notch if you want to lay frame
11. Ditch the leafsprings, Have a 2,3,or 4-link installed
12. MUCHO DINERO

If you don't know what your doing, have a reputable shop install everything. Don't get some hack to do it for cheaper, because more than likely it'll break, won't look professional, and you'll have to pay to have it redone. Trust me, I did this.

You'll have to have the mounts welding on to the frame, and a notch will have to be welded to your rearend. Many companies sell complete kits for specific vehicles, but you still need to have it installed.

Some links for pics and other links

www.dropjawmag.com
www.layinbody.com
www.dropndrag.com
www.silverstarcustoms.com
www.ifcustom.com (a good one with lots of install pics)

Read Truckin, MiniTruckin, Street Trucks, and any other Truck Customization Magazines.

Good Luck and be prepared to spend some money.

Justin

one of the best places to go (and my favorite) is www.suicidedoors.com the best thing about them is: "they ain't no damn corporation!" and their **** is beefy. all items are better price than anywhere else I have seen. I would suggest building your own 2-link using 2x3 tube with 3/16 wall (two lenths 30" a piece, and thier bar ends ($20) bolt it up to your stock front spring perch. they are very sturdy, easy to do, and reliable. the only problem is you don't get sick side-to-side action. If you want that buy one of their triangulated 4-link kitsor do the two link with their super pivot ends as opposed to the knuckles. good luck, and remember to take your time and do it right.
