Replacing Air Suspension Springs/Bags

The air springs/bags on my 2000 Alpine are showing signs of cracking and I'm going to replace them. If anyone has replaced these do you have any tips or suggestions? The rear looks easier to replace than the front. Also, who is a good source to purchase them from?

I was just talking to Keith at Redlands about air bag replacement. He says he removes them and takes them to his truck part supply place to match. If its in a big town, should be an off the shelf item, and ~$125 ea. Both fronts & rears should be not very challenging, but use jack stands for safety.
Call a truck stop or truck repair place near you and ask, "where would I go around here for replacement air bags?"
Also, I believe, the part#'s are on the metal plate lid. There may be a choice of with & without rubber bumper inside; you need the one w/the rubber bumper.

On a 2000 the chances are that the bolts are rusted and will be difficult to remove. I had one of my fronts replaced at a Freightliner shop and the other replaced at Cummins Coach Care.
The part number for the front bag on my coach is
Triangle: AS-8311
Firestone: W01 358 9039
Goodyear: 1R12-095
Holland: 90557023

I haven't change the rears yet so don't have a number for those.
