Air ride

I have a 59 dodge pick up just wondering how hard it'd be to make it air ride equipted. I've never installed air ride before is this something that can be relatively self explanatory or will I need to take it to a local custom shop?

Depends on how you want to do it. It can be incredibly simple or extremely complex.

i have some guys from a local shop goin to help out they also said i could do coil overs but wouldnt that take away some ride quality?

Also if possible what is the easy way for air ride and the hard way. I want this to be done right no short cuts nor do i want to do any sort of hack job.

Unless your goal is to be able to air the truck out and lay frame, I would just stick with a static drop. Bags are cool but fairly intricate to get setup just right with four link rear, electric valves and compressors and such. I set out with the intent of being able to drop my truck all the way down which is why I chose to do bags. Coilovers would have been much easier with much less chance of failure.
