Oh , should say also, in the rear , front outer bags need to be compressed to get them between the duals then moved forward if your tires are on. Ratchet strap works well. I had my vacuum hvac pump set up to do it but it wasn't needed.

I ordered 1/4x1/4 brass fittings to raise up the push to locks as the rears are 90 degree. Also gets them up out of the hole they would be sitting in for debris and water. Mine were all 3/4 thread originally. You could also just order a bag without the base that mounts with the one center bolt. Just mark carefully how it is clocked before taking it off . You dont want to play in and out three times to get it correct. Also you'll find with the 1/4x1/4 you can mount the 90 push to lock in it, then still get a wrench on the 1/4 hex to install it once the bag is in the coach. Without a fitting you're hamstrung trying to tighten some of the fittings due to space.


Thanks, I may call a couple local shops to see what they say/offer.

To the OP, glad you got them replaced. I commend you and how you did yours. After doing mine with tires/wheels off there is NO way I would do them any other way now. This was actually not a bad job at all and removing the tag axle lower trailing arms was cake, not exactly what I would call heavy lifting. My skinny son squeezed in on the first one but I removed the driver's side lower control arm and I was even able to fit my big ass up inside of there without too much difficulty.

Air tools with my 3/4" Snap-on wobbly impact also was a time saver but if not a good ratcheting wrench will be almost the next best thing.

I have the number for my airbag right off the parts page that I have 9376(1T15L-2), which crosses to a Firestone W01-358-9376

So I have done a search and almost every place says Out of Stock but Trucksprings.com said ships in 7-10 days >>> NOT. I placed an order and got an email this AM saying the air bag is on back order until late October. Price with tax free shipping was ~$197.



The only place I found with them in stock was REV but the price was ~360 without tax or shipping, which I will not buy at that high of a price.


Anyone know of a place to order air bags from???? Going to call a couple local truck shops to see what they have.






Too bad, I just recently sold my two new spares but these guys are great to deal with if you can't find them anywhere else.

Thanks Mike, I read all your stuff on any project I'm going to do. The ratchet wrench was needed on the tag bags up top. The 18 inches was needed due to age, mine not the airbags , �� being in a grass field I wasn't able to safely pull the tires. I'm trying to get a pad in this year but everyone is so busy and out of everything.
