Air springs vs. air bags

I had chassis work done recently (1998) and had to have the airbags replaced (all)I noted (later) that they also replaced air springs.Are they one in the same, front vs. rear? I thought the chassis had 4 air bags did not know about the term air springs.

Thanks Gene

The air diagram for my 99 F/L chassis , refers to the suspension support component as an, " air bag " I do believe the names are interchangeable in the case of the suspension component.
How many parts were billed for ?
If only 4, then the parts are one in the same.

Not really unusual , could come down to a different parts person giving out the part, or a person not up on parts names finalizing your invoice.
When I started working at Chrysler in 1975 they had 5 different names for an , ignition coil.
Or the ongoing confusion over , relays and solenoids.
And the list goes on.

Air spring; An inflatable structure made from reinforced rubber to support a vehicle,
to replace a steel suspention spring.

Air Bag; [moderator edit]Structure in a blimp or dirigible for
holding lighter than air gas for lift. also may be full of hot air.
