    I ended up smoothing out the spring pockets in the front so there was no chance of interference

    I'm installing an accuair elevel on my 61. Does anyone have pics show in where they mounted the ride height sensor on the front and rear. I'm running stock arms and plan on installing front shock relocators.
    Thanks for the help this is my first go at this.

    Awesome info here! I'm very new to air ride but just picked up a 4 door 64 impala that I just want to put bags and wheels on. I know the route I'm going to take. EDC (Sanden, I've built EDC from a Sanden for my jeep before) with an 8 gallon tank and FBSS. I know I want to use SS bags but here are a few questions I have.

    Keep in mind this is a budget build as its a 4 door

    1- what size bags should I consider using? I want a fairly fast setup and will be using 1/2" valves. Who has the best brackets for said bags?
    2- what valves and controls should I consider? It's a four door and I dont want to break the bank on a cheap cruiser.
    3- would a y bone be enough to solve the pan hard bar issue. Any opinions and what one I should be considering? Ditch the sway bars?
    4- lastly I want to run 14" wires. What size works best with a bagged 64? (14x7, 6, etc?) and what tire should I be looking to run so it'll all fit.

    About me- I have access to a lot of tools and I fabricate custom motorcycles and parts for a living so fab work is nothing for me, I'm just super new to impalas and air ride.

    That's what I was told. Sounds like my best bet is to get my EDC on the motor and pumping air then call aac to put together my "kit". Thanks man, clear cut answers are a huge help

    Hey NFA any chance you could give us measurements on those shock mounts you made? I joined the forum because of this thread. I just got a 60 bel air that I'll be bagging in the next month or so. This thread has been super informative.
