It'* doable, you'll need to get the air tank mounted somewhere, and get the bags in but otherwise it'* not too bad. It'd look good for sure, specially with your wheels.

Pretty soon you'll need a custom paint job buddy

It'd be pimp and you know it. Hurry up and schedule the install.

one word...HYDRAULICS!

But really, lowered springs/struts would probably be cheaper if the bags get too expensive. You will have the most pimp ride on here.
