Hi guys,

i have another probably stupid question but i'm a bit of a n00b to it all really.

I came across a EL in the wreakers the other day and noticed it was sitting on it a***... on further inspection i found that she had Air bags/Hydros installed... which i have put a hold on at the wreakers for the time being...

My main question is would they fit into a BA Falcon? or would they be different?

Cause that would save me from that grinding noise i hear on speed bumps... :roll:

if its full on airbags, then its a rare thing.
*most* air bag isntallers can't or won't do the front of falcon's because of the suspension setup, they'll do the rear though.
but if this is the factory crap then i wouldn't touch it

it's a proper Air bag kit... for front and rear my uncle used to have it in his EL.

and they are going to cost me Nada... hence why i would be keen to do a little modding to fit them in.
