air ride suspensions?

hey gang, my internet got brokedededed cause of lightnning [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img], anywho, got to looking and came across air ride systems for leaf springs. I figured if you installed this bag and took out shocks and maybe even a couple leafs out of your leaf pack, you would have a fully adjustable front to back side to side suspension, not to mention be able to control how stiff/ soft your truck rides, maybe my thoughts are wrong..but if right, wouldnt that help out a lot offroad? The kits are not that pricy at all...

Re: air ride suspensions?

I actually thought about this for a minute or two when I was trying to figure out what I wanted to do with the stone wagon. I would think something could be adapted and made to work one way or the other if nobody has done it already. but....then I just ordered the jeep eater kit from rocky road. which I'm still waiting on if anybody cares.

Re: air ride suspensions?

The air springs are just springs..no damping in them. Put them where the shocks are and you get boing! You still need shocks. Maybe use the main leaf plus 1 or 2 others to locate the axles and use the airsprings for lift? Or build 4-link setups like the lowrider truck guys do. [img]images/graemlins/40BEER.gif[/img]

Ben Olson's Air Zuki

Air setup works well for this guy, more fabbing than you're probably looking forward to do though.

Re: air ride suspensions?

toyguy thats exactly what I was thinking/saying, maybe run 2 main leafs and even shocks to have a literal fully adjustable suspension, sure would be cool everytime your stuck on 3 wheels and need traction, with the flip of a switch your back online lol Ya it would be fun to play with Honda's at stoplights as well...Im probably gonna study more, but I would say with 2 main leafs it would keep the axle inline...Prolly would have to throw some links or a traction bar...Any other thoughts on this??
