there's a member on some of the boards, Kaci i believe, who has bags on her coupe. She's usually more than happy to pass along information on it. i know for sure she's on xtremesaturn.com, but not sure about the others.
Here is her cardomain site

i dunno if they make any kits so you'll have to get mounts made, but basically you need valves(one to fill and one to dump) the air, you could do 4 and control the front and back seperately or do 8 and have front/back/side/side, then you need an air tank and compressor, all the fittings, and then the all important bags, for cars most people use struts or air cylinders, look on ebay for kits and then have a shop make your mounts

ive often thought about bagging our saturn, it seems pretty easy actually, pretty much the mounts are the only fabbing needed, everything just goes right in, unlike my truck, i think everything in a car can stay where it is, anybody know if anything needs to be relocated

p.s. my truck took more damage from being bagged then when it was lowered and scrapping on speedbumps, something about throwing sparks gets to you

The air struts ought to do just fine. You can request a free catalog that is quite extensive. And the site has a good FAQ page. They've also got a section with customer cars; all sorts of makes and models. But to me, air ride is the way to go for dropping your car or truck. You can slam it when you park, or inflate it to near stock height when you want. Also, with trucks, some bags can actually increase the load capacity. Pretty cool if you ask me.

Fair warning, it's not cheap by any means. It will run you $2000+ for everything.......air struts, valves, tank(s), guages, pumps, tubing, installation, etc. But it's worth it. Your saturn will ride like a Caddy....well....better than it did before.
