Can someone suggest a good source for air bags that install in the front coil springs of 2002 Workhorse P32? Could remove and install be a diy job or best left to a truck garage? Thanks.
Steve

Firestone makes a line of air bags called Ride-rite. Not knowing your level of skill to do this makes it difficult to say if you can.

This should be moved over to the Workhorse Forum.

Replaceing the bags is a time consuming job. But it is a DIY job if you have the time.

I have never done it but many have. Some also replaced the bags with bigger front springs.

This is the way i replaced mine. Jack up the front end(levelers work) and cut out the old bags(slice them between the coils and take it out in small pieces). On the new bags before rolling them up soak them in very hot water(wear gloves when handling). Take them out of the water and roll them up as tight as you can get them(they need to fit through the hole in the "A" arm) and tie them with a string or plastic cable tie. Soak it down with soapy ater and slide it into the hole. Before you untie the bag put the plastic washers on the top and bottom. Untie the bag,position it, and fill it up with air.

Camping World. I think they charged me $80 to install them. For another $12 you can get a lifetime warranty.
