Bagged Vs Static Car Stance

December 17, 2023

Bagging a car is one of the most popular modifications in the car scene. This is because people can easily adjust their ride height on the fly and get that perfect fitment for their wheels, tires or to lay their car out as low to the ground as possible for shows or photo shoots.

Static Vs Bagged Car Stance

Static suspension setups are a more affordable option for your daily driver, but they offer limited adjustability and will wear out faster than an airbag setup. They also offer less road handling and performance characteristics than a bagged car, which could be an issue if you plan on taking your vehicle to the track.

A bagged stance is a more complex setup that uses airbags to control the car's suspension height. The system consists of an air compressor, switches and valves to inflate or deflate individual airbags on each corner of the vehicle. The airbags can be inflated or deflated on the fly, which allows you to easily adjust your car's height. This allows you to maintain a certain look with your wheels or tires, such as hellaflush or fender to lip fitment, while still having a stable and comfortable ride.

While a bagged car is more expensive than static suspension, it offers more flexibility and is ideal for people who are constantly changing the look of their car. It also has the added benefit of being able to quickly raise and lower your ride height on the fly for driving over bumps or going up steep entrances.
