    Well....

    I have spent the best part of the weekend under the Rv....

    Thought I'd look at fitting the Air Ride units today....

    They went on like a dream....

    Took the original Rebound/Bump stops off and assembled the units....

    Can't believe how thick and solid the chassis is though...:Doh:

    Just got to make up the mounting plates for the Schrader valves ...

    Looking forward to trying her out when the valves are fitted and Units inflated....

    I could not believe how well they went on...

    I was expecting a real challenge this time...Beautiful day...Too good really but had to make the most of it...

    i also fitted mine on the cheyenne today, managed to do it wth out even jacking the van up, got my rather large belly stuck a few times on the skirts:BigGrin:,
    i fitted a twin inflation gauge and secured all the pipes and air bags in about 4.5 hours i just have the rod for the brake to ajust, but as you say not as hard to do as you think, what is the optimum pressuer for the air bags ?

    Hy Freelanderuk,

    I believe mine states not above 60psi or below 20 psi

    I'll try initially at around 40 I think.I don't want a rock-solid ride...Just need to bring the body roll back into line...

    Glad you sorted yours ok too.:thumb:

    It's fun under there isn't it?

    Steve.

    I'm sure I heard Pammy saying it was dead easy.
