I just helped put bags on my best Friend's 96 Impala. He bought a kit that was for an s-10 and then we modified it to work on his Imp. In the rear, we used his stock shocks, but up front we couldn't use anything because of the bag taking the place of the spring. So the only way to use shocks would be to relocate. We also had to notch out his frame (in the front) and weld some new pieces of metal in for strength. All in all, its not to hard to do. While driving behind him it looks quite bouncy but riding in the car you can't hardly tell.
