Still working on the old buggy. The inexpensive stabilizer works great. This is a 1985 Chevy G-30 van chassis and am trying to install the Air Lift 1000 in the front coils to level up the front end and ease the loading on the shocks. Their web site says to stuff the bellows in between the gap in the coils, not open enough, and the hole in the lower control arm seems too small also. Is it necessary to remove the lower control arm to install? Any experience with this out there? Thanks C

I put a set of these in a full size Bronco not that long ago. I used a duck bill spreader on my porta power to part the coils enough to slide the bags in.

My hands don't work as well as they used to, that's for sure. The warming up of the bags really helps (along with pulling the cap off!!) to deflate and roll-em up. The rest of it with running the air lines and such was easy-peasy. Just make sure the valve side is DOWN.... once they are in it's sawsall time to get them out.

Thanks David, Was a little daunted as the company vid and tech were not a lot of help. With this info and the weather warming I'm inspired to give it a go. Maybe a younger set of hands for the twisting and turning would be a good option. Starting to understand my limits. Unlike yesteryear.

There are great videos on YouTube for this exact kit. I put one in my P30 front end and I put the "bags" in a pot of hot water to soften them up. Yes, you may need to zip tie them once you roll them to push them through the bottom hole but the ties slide off as you push up. Push, twist, push,twist and they got in there. The harder part was slipping in those flat donuts of rubber on top and bottom but a long pair of needle nose pliers helped A LOT. My kit works awesome in keeping the Allegro's front end up and firm. No funny comments, Lakota!
