Spartan Air Bag Noise

When inflating the air bags on our 2018 DS on a Spartan K2 chassis, we hear several loud “pops” or “ bangs”. Over the few minutes that is required to reach travel height, the front bags pop 3-4 times, both sides, and the rear once or twice. This is getting progressively worse. Any ideas?

Sounds like suspension joints are making that noise. Mine will pop sometimes after sitting for a while and especially if it's rained a lot.
Do you have your chassis lubed regularly? It could be you have some dry joints.

When the suspension lowers, sometimes the bags fold over themselves and pop when they are expanding back out. I have that happen occasionally with ours, especially when the front end is high because of unlevel ground. The first time it happened I was standing right next to the front wheel and had to go back inside for a change of underwear!
