The rear airbag kits for the P32...good or bad idea?

Also, where the mounts bolt on to the frame...would it interfere with the frame mount for my henderson trac-bar? It looks like the right side would be pretty close.

They will also cut down on the body roll.

I used them to stop my porposing before WH
agreed to replace the front shocks. Now that
they are on the MH (front) I lowered them
to around 30#. Or about half of what I used
before the BILSTEINS were installed. TENN.

My 1995 P32 came with the Jet Air Bags in the back which are self leveling and they do make a world of difference in the way the coach handles. If you get them with a dash controlled compressor it will make them even nicer. Mine can be individually adjusted to trim and level the coach and sometimes they are nice to have to temporarally raise the coach to go over an obstacle or up a steep ramp. Just put them back to normal once you have passed over the problem area.

Don't tee them without check valves or they could make your coach sway worse by transferring air pressure from one bag to the other via the connecting lines.

Regards,

Neil
