Lets put it this way...
I was given a quote of $4400 to do a full bag job layed out on 20s.
Oh..That was with me supplying everything except rear link, notch, cups, lines, tubs and fittings.

It was from one of the best shops around and its in california, so it might be on the higher side, but I doubt it'll vary a whole lot from that.

Expect to pay $1,500-2,500 for parts.
If you're going to have a shop do it expect to pay them $1,500-2,500 for their work.

I have a friend who was charged $1900 to lay his 01 Noma out on 20's all around and that DID NOT include parts. He had to buy them himself.

First and foremost, do some searches on this forum, read the stickies, and check out www.bagginit.com That's one of the best (if not the best) websites for learning about air suspension. Once you think you've got an idea of what you want, check out www.suicidedoors.com They've got *almost* everything you'll need to bag your truck.

seriously man search, new post everyday on this. but anyways, read up on the forum and if you just want a basic set up look into the airbar for the rear and an SD front special and do it yourself, very simple install.

All my bag stuff together came to less than $2000. s10forum front special plus fittings and upgrades came to close to $1000 and the rear is Airlifts Slamair (The exact same thing as ART airoverleaf buts only $170) on a 2 leaf setup. It was really not hard to setup but it was quite time consuming because there are so many little things to do.

is that 2000 just to install it if its just too install it it sounds right but with everything you need it doesnt really sound right make sure what you are gatting is worth it youll regret it in the long run and you probaly know this that if you dont cut it up it will sit at a shitty angle when aired all the way down

ive spent about 4g's on mine. and i did everything myselfe. firewall was the only thing done profesionaly. that was about 6-700 i dont remember. ive spent so much becuse i bought the fbi crappy "lightning" air kit and ive replace everything but the valves and tank. i have ss bags at all corners, art control arms, 3 link, monster notch, 2 viar 380's, all hardlined, and then crossmembers, fixing exahust. so it will lay frame. i bumpstoped it up when i put the kit back on. so try not to do it cheap, it will come back around and bite your ass, and make you dish out more money to fix it. do it right then you can leave it alone.
