1991 30 ft Winnebago Itasca Air Bags

I have a 1991 30ft Winnebago Itasca with 4 air bags. The two at the back springs have leaks. Do they really do anything? I am wondering if they need to be replaced and just how much they effect the ride? I have been quoted $300 to $500 to replace the back two.

That's a better price than what I paid to replace the fronts on my P 30 chassis. I would have it done as I think you definitely get a better ride with the airbags absorbing the shock. Besides, those bags will help with the weight in the rear of the coach, as well as assist in giving a level ride height which in turn will give you a better ride as well

All of what jdoran said . They make a day and night difference in the ride and handling of the your coach. Some people also think that the airbag inserts in the front coil springs don't really do much but they really do a lot more than you think. If you haven't already added extensions to the front airbags, do so and you will find you can adjust the ride and handling of your rig. Same with the rear. Your post should really be on the Workhorse chassis forum. You would get a lot more input.

Replace them. The suspension is designed with the air bags in mind. My front air bags went out on me and it was like riding a bronco, and when the wind hit it from the side I could barely keep in on the road. I installed mine for $80.00 and a day of hell, but I'm glad I did.
