Don't understand the question?? A diesel pusher will normally have air bags.. A gasser will normally have springs.. BOTH will have shocks.

The only ones I've seen are done by Kelderman. They install a lower rate springs on the front and add in the air bags. Adding bags to a coach with no change in spring rate will only make it worse.

Howdy and welcome aboard. As mentioned Kelderman has a system for air bags on a gas coach but is quite $$$$$. Do a search and get some reviews and ideas on the installation.

I did get the Kelderman system on my 2011 SOB on a 22K F-53 chassis. The cost at that time was roughly $5,000 for front and rear. I won’t use terms like “night and day” or even “significant improvement” since those are relative terms that have different meaning for different people. What I will say is after experiencing the ride improvement, I would do it again and for me it was money well spent.
