Re: Has anyone installed "in spring" air bags to by-pass leaky air shocks?
johnny k, The AirLift bunch has been around since at least 1960 or so. Used their excellent stuff in a '65 Chevelle SS and a '65 Pontiac LeMans. Before I would ever go to passive rear shocks in the car in order to "repair" a faulty ELC system I'd go to a pair of their manual bags and keep the active controlled shocks.
One could then set the bags at a tad over normal ride height and no amount of rear load would compress the springs.................
