Air Ride Seats in a Cobalt?

Anyone ever done it? If so where did you get the kit?


Nitrous is like a hot girl with an STD, you always want to hit it but are afraid of the consequences.
I purposely down shift when i pass a prius so they can hear me hurting the environment.

Had a class B CDL for awhile, and yeah, those seats in any car would be awesome on trips.

I'm a little too long in the torso for that. I have the base of my seat all the way down and my head is about 1 inch from the roof. I don't see how to fit one in...

Yea, unless you are below 5 foot there wouldn't be enough head room. I already have a hard enough time with soda bottles and I am only 5'10". Do not think they would do much good as the bags would have to be at least 3-4 inches tall to be of any sort of useful purpose.
and yes I have ridden in a civilian semi with airbag seats and have driven a HEMMT with spring loaded seats across 700 miles of Kuwait/Iraqi back roads back in 2003. They are cool, but again don' think there would be any way to have functional air bag seats in a small car of any kind.

It would take a lot, but basically you'd have to have the seat assembly on the floor and then the air ride would have to be small and I do mean small bags that could inflate to give you the same seat travel as what we have now, then the tracks would have to mount to that... it'd be hard but it could be done.
