Air Bag Shocks

Has anyone installed them, used them, pulled a 22' boat (roughly loaded down would be 5500#) ?

Re: Air Bag Shocks

No, I do not. I have recently seen these on a Toyota Tundra, and was amazed at the rigidness when a heavy trailer was attached. 20#s of air in each ( manually input )
I would really like to find some for mine for a new boat that is coming.

Re: Air Bag Shocks

I have looked for these over the years. There are none on the market that have been designed and tested for the Ridgeline that I can find. The Odyssey, yes, for some reason.

If you want them, you will probably have to have them expensively custom made.

Re: Air Bag Shocks

I searched too and came up empty handed for the ridge. I installd a set of Firestone airsprings on a k1500 Chevy....instant 1 ton it's amazing what they can do. Unfortunately, due to demand, I really doubt we will ever see them on the market for the ridgeline.

Re: Air Bag Shocks

Supposedly a company out here in Arizona can help. The company is located in Mesa, a few miles from my home and they're supposedly one of the major suppliers of air bag suspensions.

http://www.airbagit.com/Air-Suspensi...x-r-hon-80.htm

I don't know if this is a kit specifically designed for the Ridgeline, or a combination of parts that are needed to do the job and need to be adapted to work on the Ridgeline. (I went through their installation instructions and they seem pretty generic.)

I know when my truck was customized with a four wheel airbag suspension a number of changes had to be fabricated, including disconnecting the rear anti sway bar and installing special shock mounts to replace it.

I do know the compressors, air tank and manifold will fit nicely in the trunk, but you do loose some storage space.

Good luck, I hope this helps.
