I was chasing up some modifications today to help my SIL who drives a Rodeo tray top for his work and it sags like b...gry in the tail due to the nature of the equipment he carries on it.

At first we thought about beefing up the leaf springs. Poly airs were not suitable, but then I found this crowd who can handle anything from a mini to a cement truck. I had seen the product before but never knew where to get them. They deliver and have full DIY instructions

Should be the thing for those with trailer induced sag as well.
Hope it's of help.

Depending on how quickly you require the product, they can be purchased and shipped directly from the U.S for about 50% cost of local supplier

Hi Rolande,

I have tried contacting trucksprings by email several times now with no response. How did you contact them? Was it by phone, fax etc... I am trying to get a set of airbags for my patrol.

Cheers

I bought a set of the Firestone springs from Trucksprings for my 80 Series Cruiser, and they were pretty quick to get back to me.

Remember it was July 4 this week. so they may be a bit behind. I did it all via email, including forwarding them the details of my card so that they would get paid.

At the time they were out of stock, but kept me advised all along the way, and when they got their stock, they arrived here in a matter of days.

Worth perservering, although I am sure a "reminder" may not be out of place under the circumstances.

Good luck.

Captain

I am currently ordering some for my GQ at the moment, they had no listing of the kit so I sent them the listing from Airbagman in Aust. Landed here will be about $170 oz dollars.

Email this guy marcw@truckspring.com

Captain,
Back home now so have info for you. For a standard height GU the kit number is 4129. It is the same number provided locally so it should be right, price is US$77.98 plus US$43.85 shipping via UPS, (should be here in around 2 weeks. On the latest exchange that is AUS$169.07

The kits contain all the necessary parts, 2 air springs, inflation
valves, air line, ties, thermal sleeves. The kit does not include a
compressor (optional).

Use the EMAIL provided. Marc suggests you start an account, use any state and then email him the details, which he will follow up.

Hope this helps

I installed a set of extra springs which bolt on to the existing springs. They were a half spring?????

They were called helper springs or such some thing. Cost just over $100.00. got it from a auto supplier store.
Sorry if I am not being more clear but this was a few years ago.
All I know is that they worked for me but I had to get the brake load sensing valve readjusted because it left me no back brakes(drum brakes) due to the lack of sag.

The product I think you are reffering to is Ironman Load Plus, work really well, adjustable and easy to fit.
