finally got what I wanted since i bought this car. found a nice air ride kit for my impala at an awesome price. I'll be holding off on installation until after winter so i don't have to worry about frozen solenoids. I'll be piecing together my top swap this winter also so hopefully I'll have both mods on for next show season. time to get myself a winter beater!

I want air ride SOOO bad!!! What kit is that?
Being that you have been wanting to too, mind if I ask if you know what kits are offered for the imps and what they go for? Or if you've considered piecing together a kit?
I'm still trying to figure out the whole bad on stut idea

the price of these kits are anywhere from 2200-3200 for a full kit (with everything you need) or about 750 for each pair of struts so 1500+ the amount for the solenoids the compressors switch box tank and lines and fittings(+ additional electrical components and wiring) and because of the crazy price is why I've been waiting for someone to sell a used kit i found this kit on grandprixforums.net i almost got one from this site awhile back but i didn't have the funds at the time but i definitely got a better deal this time around id say search forums for a used kit unless you wanna spend that amount if so this links should send you in the right direction and my kit is from airbagit.com which are built the best you'll see that when you do a little research

The front looks good but the rear needs to be raised a little. Its too low in the rear

Looks very good! Always wanted to bag an Impala just to see how much complexity it would be (mainly the electrical portion) congrats on the mod! Let me know how the ride quality is with the bags compared to the normal setup if you don't mind?

Thanks man. And yeah the wiring was the worst part , I made sure to get that out of the way first (bit by bit)so I wouldn't have to worry about it after.the rides not bad, I don't have my gauges hooked up yet so I'm not sure exactly what pressure I'm running in each corner. I'm sure once I know all that and get it dialed in it'll be much better

Stock? Really? Lets see i have different headlights, grille, different tails dual exhaust, tints, the black spoiler to tie it in then Air Ride, and 20s.(+ an alpine w550 double din, 7" headrest tvs,13" flipdown, rearview camera where the trunk lock used to be, kicker ks components,3 l7 10s 2000w amp and custom trunk)Damn what else you want? i don't like the body kits for this car, besides the one from street trendz. I go with the clean look not the overdone look. And it looks even cleaner laying down. the mpd hood is next on the list to feed more air to my supercharged engine! Then the front bumper and paint. They don't have a whole front end i could just"bolt-on" like your magnum, sorry. One step at a time man. Lol. What would your suggestions be? I'd love to hear them.
