      Bagged E36 Beast
      09-29-2011 10:07 AM #1
      So I am getting rid of the coils on the car and decided to go with air on this car.

      Most of the setup is being transferred from the MK4 since it is being parted out. I have to custom weld the front strut mounts on my airlift struts to make it work though.

      Just curious if anyone else has seen any decent bagged e36's as they seem to be practically non existent?

      Pic of the car:

      And from what I understand, it was a completely custom setup, so I could do it myself much faster with my airlift struts.

      Jaze aka Jesus Christ on stanceworks is bagging one, there's another one in northern CA that was posted over there at one point. So far none have really been lower than some of the static e36's though, which is disappointing. Good luck dude!

      I really don't see bagyard making just one set of custom one of struts and not putting them into production. You may want to contact someone more knowledgable.

      Sorry didn't mean to sound harsh at all. I agree no kit should ever be needed for an e36 or e30. I remember welding up my own struts on my e30. Of course that was before bags hit big and everyone started making kits. I personally prefer to use the bagyard stuff for build quality alone. They do it better and prettier than me all day long. As well as better than any other company,still around. (yes I said still around because MasonTech was right up there with BY) Too bad I don't have fab equipment. lol

      Go do work and show us some pics!!

      I'm curious, why did you decide to use sleeves up front instead of bellows? There looks to be a good amount of space.
