What's the go with airbag suspension in the E series? Anyone heard of people doing it?

What's the go with converting a car to airbags, ie engineers reports? depends on the amount of fabrication i'd suppose? Been watching monster garage and it's made me wonder what kinda hoops you've gotta jump through to do it legally.

i looked into it a while ago, the main problem with fitting bags to a falcon was the clearence thorugh the top arms on the front, however the guys from tss said they could make up a ground zero kit, for a fair few extra $$, that uses cylenders instead of bags. And yes airbags deffinately have to be engineered, in NSW anyway.

Ring up vicroads and ask them about the legalities. I think i remember hearing that all airbags are illegal in Vic...
