Does anyone have a PN and a website for a 05 V1?

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

Cool im interested to see your results and some installed pics. I assume you are installing these on stock springs right?

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.
