Does anyone know or have experience in repairing an air bag suspension.I unfortunately staked a smallish hole in one of of the Firestone air bags on my last hunting trip and tried to plug it without success. I know a replacement will be quite costly

If you know the size ,ie length and diameter you can order direct , cheap as chips, postage is not bad either . http://www.truckspring.com/suspension-parts/helper-springs/air-bags/firestone-coil-rite.aspx

I reckon these things are replace only, I wouldnt want to be relying on a repair

Good advice Bonz, under compression these things would blow any repair to bits.

They don't run much pressure, but they seem to be made of different stuff than tyres but in a pinch I would plug one and see how it goes, but not for a long term fix
