View Full Version : Anyone use airbags on an RBV
09-25-2007, 10:40 PM
The back of my B2 is starting to squat again. I have replaced the springs once with new B@ springs (ouch).
I added a set of helper springs, the two piece jobbies, and they are still starting to sag. I especiall hate it because when accelerating and shifting the truck bobs up and down.
I saw I could get a set of Ride-Rite airbags for the rear end. Has anyone had anything like this before? If so how did it work out?

Another option would be to swap in some explorer leafs

I thought about that, but I was hoping maybe to retain the stock leaves. If only so I could make the ride height adjustable with different PSI ranges.

Im sure it owuld work fine, but if you when ahead and went with explorer springs you would get a lil lift and better ride.

Well I found a set of hellwig helper springs at work that was in a box that had to have been at least 20 years old. It is a good size spring. I think it was a set for a fullsize truck, but they leaves are the same width as the B2. I started putting them on tonight and the side I got done sit higher now than the front. I had to cut off the ubolts holding on the set of helper springs I currently had on it. They were a 2 piece design and worked for a while.
I am missing a U-bolt so once I get it tomorrow I will see how it works out.
