Hey Guys... So say I had a B-body I wanted to bag. I would like F/B control, but F/B/S/S is not necessary. What would be the cost? What would I use for materials? What is the lowest cost doing it right? Just wondering... Wink I know there's a few of you here with a lot of experience and I have never done it... Very Happy

between buying the set up ( so many to choose from), fabrication and installation it cost around $1500 to $2500 range depending on how elaborate of set up you want........

most complete kits cost about $1000 to $1500 ( more functions more cost, f,b,s2s,pancake, 3 wheel) add the plumbing, battery(s),modification time ( frame, a-arms, mounting the compressor, running switches, etc.)
plus if you start adding personal custom touches then the price starts to rise.......
there are quality set ups and cheap set ups but just like every thing else you sometimes are just buying the name attached to the product so due the research dont go with what everyone else is using....... ie ( i got cheap wire wheels but if it makes you feel better i'll tell you their dayton's.)

and if you know the right people........ S.S........... lol...... then yeah it is cheaper....

i would put parts cost between 1000-1500.
i just made a parts list for my brothers s10, he was just over 1000
and he needed notches. all he has left to get is some wire and a few fittings.

i would recommend fbss.
the cost of the additional 4 valves is worth the price to not have to deal with the air transfer from side to side on turns.

smith chassis and metal works is where i got my front bolt on cups.
josh is a member on issf. his username is the company name with no spaces.
they also make rear bolt in or weld in kits.

within the next month the rear brackets and bags i have in the car now will be for sale.

this is the kit i had my brother get for the air management.

there is always stuff popping up on the truck forums that you
can save money on if your not in a huge hurry to buy stuff.

if i forgot anything let me know.
