Hi all, any bagged guys in here? If so, would you share any install pics? I have never done anything with bags. I just trying to get a visual on whatever I can. Thanks.

I've been interested in this as well. I've seen some generic kits on ebay that may work if your up for some fab work.

Why bother ? My last wagon I used a spring package from Hotchkis #1922 for an Impala SS I'll be doing this on the one I just purchased the kit runs around $350.00  .I run fat 60 series TA radials on 15x8 Vette style rally wheels the lower sidewall tires also drop the car a bit and I have no issues with tire rub . No fabrication ,you can install it in an afternoon ,still maintains a  nice ride and for me gives it a nice look .

Because a car on bags is much different than a car on lowering springs. Some folks want their ride on the ground, others don't. Don't need an expensive set of lowering springs either when some cheap parts from Moog will do just fine.

OP, you will have better luck over at ISSF for bagging info. Majority of folks here like em stock and high in the sky.

That would be me. cheers "Low is no" in my world of cruising around wherever we want, or going on couple of hundred mile country drive. Never know what the roads of driveways will bring and don't want leave parts along the way. Shocked

Just wanted to give the OP another option if he was not familiar with my set up , when I did my first Roadmaster 12 years ago the only way to drop them was springs or bags and I'm not a big fan of bags . . How much of a drop does the Moog springs give and do you have parts #'s always looking for a way to save . Nice car and I really like the wheels brand and size as this is on my list of things to do .
