I have to ask , what chassis is your coach built on?

Are you looking to replace an existing air bag on a chassis with air suspension, or add air bags to supplement a chassis with spring suspension?

Here's the Built On Freightliner info for the 2004 Journey w/Allison 2000MH transmission and the 2004 Journey w/Allison 3000MH transmission. Both chassis have Neway Air Suspension.

If you are mechanically inclined, an air bag replacement is pretty much a straight forward task. Block up the frame, disconnect the airlines and remove and replace the bag. These airbags are standard commercial truck items and can be sourced through most HD truck parts outlets. You will need the part number for the specific bag you need. Freightliner at Gaffney can provide that based on your chassis serial number.

Hey sewerdog,
First off, if you haven't already, you should register your coach with DTNA (formerly Access Freightliner). It's a tiny bit of a hassle but, when completed, you can look up YOUR EXACT COACH CHASSIS, and see EXACTLY what was installed. You can get EXACT part numbers for anything and everything that had/has anything to do with the chassis, not the box on top of it. The Freightliner parts guys just love it when you call and ALREADY have the part numbers for motorhome parts. It saves them some work.

Anyway, as has been stated, air bag replacement is not all that hard. It's a matter of supporting the coach high enough and stable enough so that you can wiggle around under there and R&R that air bag without being in danger.
Scott
