They are rubber and if they leak they need to be replaced not repaired. In most cases changing out a bag is not to big of a job. most of the time 2-3 bolts top and bottom and the air line.

Paalehorse89,

Thanks. I have looked at them and didn't think it too large a job. Any suggestions on where to find the replacements?

We sell replacement bags, and depending on your current bag model number, we may have an exact replacement. If you have a part number, I can definitely check.

Also, leaks can come from various areas in an air suspension system: bags, valves/manifolds, lines, etc. Soapy water is your friend.

I doubt the bag is leaking. Spray soapy water on all fittings, if you see bubbling you found the issue. Also, check your arilines. The bag itself will rarely leak.
