I've done and like both.
My wagon rides the same on bags as my 65 SS did on juice.
I'm going with juice on my 62.

are you actually doing a body drop? or just lowering the suspension? I only ask since it said "i decided to do this since the suspension is shot anyways" and that dosent really matter on a body drop.

I perfer bags, less juice and less batteries, but more crazy stuff can be done on juice.

crispix: i'm just undecided on what i should do , i've been through this before with my ss , first i put hotchkis lowering springs. i was happy with the drop but unhappy when i would scrap the whole front end on everybodys driveway including mine every time i put the car away.so the springs had to go ,i got sick of scraping so now i have a choice when to scrape the floor, im very happy with the hydros , its not that bad the batteries are hooked to a street charger that keeps the batteries nice and charged all the time . instead of making the same mistake i'm going straight for the floor but i think i'm going to just bag it .
JIMMER818 : did you have to cut any thing to get the wagon to touch the floor ? i'm riding stock chromee ss wheels on the wagon now but it is definitly gonna see some dubs in the future. any tips?

Crispix396 : No body drop yet.
SSTUNNER96 : Cut fender wells, notched above axle, and no more sway bar
20's are the same height and width as my stock 17's, I havenít tried my 22's yet.
