Hi, I have a 2000 blazer, 2dr, 2wd. And I am going to bag it. I have a little knowledge of how air systems work, but I don't know all the ins and outs. Looking to do this with out dropping the 2 or 3k tht air lift wants for their vehicle specific kit. Where exactly do I start.

What are you wanting to achieve? How much do you want to drop? Depends on what you want you can easily drop 2” to 3” with suspension components and maintain a great ride without the problems that come with airbags for well with in your budget.

Hmmm...........Taken literally, that would seem to be problematic, in conceptual or actual circumstances.
Okay I know you can only go so low with suspension components and then you will loose ride quality. Depending on your fabrication skills and mechanical abilities. I know to install bags you will have to remove some really important suspension components which if not careful will render the truck inoperable. Cutting and modifying The suspension and installing air bags is one thing to fab and install all the components to make it work is going to be a headache. Might want to reconsider and buy a good kit. Just my opinion

$800 will just about cover air management alone. I went for a budget set up on my s10 and spent about 3K for air management , front bag cups and shock relocators and the 3link, notch and bracket kit for the rear. Unless you have some connection with a fab guy and free steel you’ve got to have a bigger budget. Back in the early 2000’s this forum had a ton of info it’s all still there probably just not as many pics

Message me on IG if your on there. I don’t come on here as much. @fatherson_gmc

thanks, thats helping a lot

thanks, this helps a lot
Also read the stickies at the beginning of the bagging section, very helpful. Something’s that can make you create a budget are:
Front bag cups w/ bags
Rear notch kit (basic bridge kit is the cheapest)
3link kit
Rear bags
Rear shocks
Air management kit.

go to Thorbros.com they have all of that stuff. I got my air management kit from avsontheweb.com.

Now you can find all that stuff on the sites and give yourself a ballpark of what it’s going to cost you to do bags. 3link is $750 alone.
