Air Bag Suspension

Does anyone have experience with Air Bag'd suspension? It looks like a kit runs about $300-$500. Once I get the T2 installed, I'll need a semi-new suspension to help get the power down to the ground. It'd be rather trick to get airbags with maybe 1-2 leafs in the rear, and bags up front.

Opinions?

I saw the air bag episode of 'Trucks' on TNN a few years ago and wondered the same thing myself. And here I am a few years later and still wondering (in otherwords, it'd be interesting to learn about how they might work on our trucks, but I've never done any specific research on them). Anyone else?

Bags would be nice

Airbags would be nice to but in the truck. The front would bve fairly easy to do and the rear end wouldn't be to much harder the problem is getting the right size bag and shock combo so the truck would ride properly. Any experience shop that does custom suspension should figure this out. Another cool thing to get would be a 4-Link rear suspension. This would greatly improve the traction. I plan on doing this to both my Mazdas, my 1975 Repu and my 1990 B2600i. One other option that would involve a lot of custom work is to get an RX-7 independant rear end put in. Ive seen it done, with airbags to and I heard great things about the ride and handling.
