Baggin' a '51 Chevy truck on the cheap side

Hello people! I am in the hunting and gathering stage of my '51 Chevy truck build. Some of my loose ends have to do with the suspension. I have decided I really want to put the truck on air but have checked on what this might cost and that alone tells me I may have to go bag-less. This brings me to my question. I am a firm believer in that you get what you pay for but a lot of times you are paying for the name only. Does anyone have and experience/advise on a low budget air suspension? I am not after the latest super cool controllers and the ability to "lay frame". I just want a basic setup that wont break the bank. I already have plans for a budget M-II front end and a 4-link rear. Anyone?

Thanks "Dead". I looked at that website before and they seem to have decent prices. I suppose I will give them a call and see what they are able to piece together for me.

Hi "Dead", could you suply me with the part number of the valve(s) your looking at on this website? I couldn't figure out which ones they were for sure. I, too, like to bypass all of the unecessary expences if at all possible.
Thanks for the help.

Sure, I'll have to get the book out and get back to ya.But the cheapest,most basic way is to use a tire (type) valve. You'll still need compressed air to lift it back up.BTW ,Those bags are on sale, buy two get two free.
