Way too much to make it worthwhile or safe, forget about doing it.

I would try Air Ride Technologies to see what they say. They seem to be doing everything.
Personally I think it would be pretty slick.

Air Bags, are you talking the ones the blow out in a crash, or the ones used as spring in the suspension sys. it sound's like a previous poster was confused?
Hopefully it's the air ride ones becuse it's in the suspension section. those would be very cool

If it's the crash one's It would be very difficult and expensive to do. plus with a 64 caddy around you all that sheer weight makes up for air bags( almost). I mean you'd have to buy a steering wheel with the bag in it, make a new dash plus put the controling device in that's acceleration switch. and then you wouldn't want to test it, and would you know if it was going to work... no

Since there is no safety devices section I assumed he meant the explode in you face variety.

OH YA, Air bags in your Caddy. Probably the best bet for you would be to contact Air Ride Technologies, They will have a kit engineered for your car( bags,compressor,valves,switches,fittings). It may be a fair amount of work for the average person in their drive way but with a few tools and some time it is most definately worth your while. You'll have one cool Caddy.Go for it.
P.S. there are other ways ( peicing it together )and different companies ( Air Lift) but i have heard that Air Ride tech is one of the best for the COMPLETE kit.
P.S.S. good luck, keep us posted. I am excited to see it HAMMERED!

Pick up an issue of "Truckin" magazine, they have many airbag / suspension parts vendors listed in there as this is a VERY popular modification in the custom truck world. I spend some time hangin' at a custom suspension shop so I have been around this for a while, basically with enough $$$ anything can be bagged', from Hummers to Hondas....all it takes is enough cash. But your caddy' should be pretty simple (is it a 64'?) if it has leafs in the rear just take a few out and put the bags in it's place and bags just replace the coils up front. Air Ride Tech is a very good and reputiable company but they are also very expensive....it would be cheaper to piece the kit together.
