"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."

"Any buffer will do, I think that you can rent one at from the hardware store. Our RV is 21' and I don't think that I used a whole bottle."

"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…"

"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.…"

RV Front suspension

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 CSee More

Looking for a little advice/experience on improving the drivability of  a class C 1985 Mallard. Drives perfect on a smooth road, no traffic & or wind. Trying to sift through the steering stabilizer, shock, Air Lift conundrum becomes baffling after a while. Obviously the suppliers are a great source of info, HUH!Yours Truly C& D aboard " Adrift".
