I would contact air lift directly to see what will fit the application.

Bags I bought were airlift 80753, seemed just a little short but worked, got that number from a post on cadillac forums back in 08 I think

But like itsslow98 says , might not be a bad idea to check with airlift to see what they show

Did the bags help with the wheel hop?

Aready had the 9" in for some time when I added the air bags , Was adding them trying to resolve traction issues.."....... So I can't answer that one , didn't have a wheel hop problem?
For the cost of the bags I think I'd give it a try on the wheel hop issue . Been aprox 3 years since I put them on , but it seems like they were about $120 for the kit with air lines,Ect .

Did it help with traction? Is your rear coils the same as a regular V?

Have KW shocks & adjustable springs , Make that "had" because when I added the air bags I had to go back with stock springs because the kW spring are to small diameter for any air bags I could find
So to make a longer story shorter ......... Yes they are stock springs but have been cut down some & they retain the kw spring height adjuster
And yes they have helped with traction by experimenting with different pressures on each side

I just got the bags yesterday and will be installing them tonight.
I am also putting on a set of MT drag radials 305/35/18. FYI, I don't have any wheel hop issues, just traction. I will also get some pics.

I got the 305's on without any visual rubbing....(I didn't take it for a test drive yet) and no spacers. I also installed the drag bags and mounted the air valves on the rear trunk scuff plate. It's late and I didn't want to wake the neighbors for a test drive. I did take some pics before my phone died and will upload them tomorrow.
