Yo, Usually on carpices, S10 cups are ran up front, that or custom bracktes. And out back, custom ones are used. MY boy bagged his carpice and that is the setuip he used, s10front brackets, and custom rears, with my kit, and it worked great. Pretty damn fast too, just what he wanted. Lata

you should slam on 22's. ive seen a couple bagged caprices and SS impalas with 22's and it looks sick man. the wheels will butterfly a bit but looks bomb. but thats just me, i think 20's are too small for bubbles.

hey man i had to register just to reply... to get a bagged caprice to lay out on 20's

front
1.you must remove the inner wheel well up front
2. you cant use you factory hood shocks (they hit the tire)
3.you have to trim some metal on the frame around the lower control arm so it can travel more
4.remove the sway bar trash it)
5. need to notch the frame for tie rod clearance.
this will get you about a half inch from laying in the front have to get drop spindles to lay compleatly

rear
1. you need to extend you upper and lowe factory 4 link bars 3/4 inch to center the rear wheel
2. you need at least a 2 in notch in the frame for extra travel
3. be sure to re route abs and brake line becous the link bar will crunch em (found out the hard way)
that should do it.

run 2600 bags all the way more travel and a much better ride. as for line size i run 3/8 valves with 1/2 line at 180 psi and it pretty quick. would recomend at least 10 gal of air and 2 viair 450s

hope this helps if you need anything else let me know

man i compleatly forgot about taking the hump out from under the rear seat, i know what your sayin about dont be afaid to cut .. i about out of metal...
body droopin a caprice is pretty tuff the main thing if your runnin 20' theyll stic up higher than the top of the fenders you have to modify the fenders and where the hood rest. in my opinion more trouble than its worth.
