Air bags

Need to stablize the drop in the rear end of the car. Any comments on
air bags pro's and con's? Air Bags are pretty much all I have to do since
The rims were cut wrong size, but i love the look so air bags will have to work
Tried putting air shocks on but ran into room issues any other suggestions?

I havent heard any cons to air bags other than maybe the installation time. Seems a good idea to me.

I have air bags on my truck that have been there for ten years and still working..Go to and you can get the individual bags and make your mounts as it is not likely anyone has a kit for your car..

I have tried most all of it and now do what is known to work..
