Here's my original thread leading up to the four link.

Looks like I am going to have a new project on my hands
carhauler;1558173; said:WhippledHD , Really Nice job!! If you want a better ride a Rolling Lobe type bag rides much better and will handle just as much wieght. Both goodyear and Firestone make them. A double convouluted will not have the travel while inflated. You may know all of this looking at your work this is not your first time. Bet it was a ton less $$ than Kelderman. Are you gong to do a front?

GMCJOE;1558501; said:Sikkkkk Setup WhippledHD! You did an awesome job on that air bag setup.
You know what man, you should mass produce a few of those kits once you get them dialed in. Then you could sell the kits to all of us on Diesel Place, instead of having to pay so much $$$ to kelderman airride.
Im sure many of us would buy your air bag kit over the kelderman kit!
Just an idea...
carhauler;1558578; said:WhippledHD , Here is a link to some data for Rolling lobe type bag, this is basicly the same as reverseable sleeve ,We have always tried to order the semi trucks with the rolling lobe bag to get the best ride , they also have a "sweet spot" in ride hieght that is critical , I have had a truck towed and the leval valve messed with and the ride went so bad you would think it was welded solid just from the ride hieght being 1 or 2 inches off . if you look at how the 2 styles work you can see why one will ride better. Click on the part numbers all the way to the right and it will give dimensions and working limits and this is a small sample. GMCJOE is right you might have a new calling.

Are you sure the weight carrying capacity is ok with the bags sitting on this plate and welds?
