Question Is there any bagged riders on the forum?

So i just put my car into the shop to install some bags! im so stoked, and i was just wondering if anyone else had a bagged monte carlo?

If anyone has some basic knowledge to be passed on let me know, i did my research on my bags but im just a noob at suspension mods period.

i will post pictures and videos of my car when i get it back, which is like the 19th of july.

Wow, your making the leap and actually getting your Monte bagged? Very unique, think you will be the very first 6th gen ever to have this done. Going to look so bad azz with your already cherried out Monte. Gopint to be a good looking car dropped like that. Rolling with the homies...

Been planning to do mine for over 2 years now, just havent been able to save up the $3,000 so just been researching all I can, different companies that have a kit especially for our montes, which I only found a couple. Someday. Was hoping to do it this year but lack of funds stops me again. I made a thread about it last year here somewhere asking if anyone else was bagged so I could get some advice. Are you getting it done at a place that specializes in bagging or just a regular shop?

I've been planning to bag turbo monte as well but haven't done it yet. I know what I'm getting and how I'm doing it though

Nice John, your the only one I could even think of who will be going the extra mile to do a serious mod like this. from what you have mentioned before it won't be so very easy to do. But from how I have seen you work, if anyone can do it themselves, your the man!!

The slammed Monte in Dave's post does look pretty inspiring.

Best of luck Hawaii, can't wait to see your finished ride bro...

Nice, thats pretty much the money you need...mines cost me 3400 installed. Im not sure if they specialize in bags, but i know they did do previous installations on the many bagged cars we have in hawaii, so im thinking theyre reliable...and for your bag setup you should look into viair, universal air suspension, and airride products...thats what my parts are composed of.

So you dont think I would be going the extra mile to do mine? lol
And yes it is alot of work and modifying and research. Some things need to be flipped, some things need to be cut, etc... Money is what has been stopping me. Not everyone can afford to do all they want to their cars so we just do what we can a little at a time. It will be done, just not sure when.
