02 caddie deville lowrider???

ok i have a 02 caddie deville i have always loved lowriders but i dont have a lot of mechanical skills. This car is my daily driver for now. All i want my car to do is a simple hop, 3 wheel, front to back, and side to side. I think i have to use hydraulics or can i use bags, and how can i find someone that wont put in some crappy system that ill have to have fixed and wat is a good system that can last a while and wont fall apart when i park my car for 12 to 18 months? Any help will be appreciated.

Unfortunately the only way to make a lowrider hop etc is hydraulics. Airbags will not allow the suspension to hop and stuff. Airbags will just let you lower or raise the car. Doing a hydraulic system is very pricey and I would get someone who does this like a low rider shop.

Do not run hydraulics..... besides the fluid mess, hacking of the car, and possible electrical fire... they are just down right messy.

You can get your car to hop with bags.... check some YouTube videos. You run big valves and can use a nitrogen tank. The thing about an 02 Deville is the strut setup. This can be done but is not the ideal setup. Seriously think about this.... over time hopping any car will destroy the integrity of the body. You would be better off running a conventional bag setup and just keep it clean and simple.
