Hi There.. First time we have left message in here.
Need some assistance please..
We have a 4WD Hilux with camper box sitting on the tray back.
Have 7 leaf spring suspension.
As we are heading up the Canning Stock Route and other outback areas in a few months would like to know if Ride-Rite Bellows Air bag be the best thing to assist the springs.
Anyone have any experience or comments to make on this type of suspension ?
Thank you..

Can't help with experience, but I wonder what the effect of an airbag being punctured/becoming u/s on such a remote journey ?

I would look at using Add-a-leaf, or Helper springs. Air bags are great in coil springs by seem to give problems with leaf springs, with claps coming loose or dragged off and the spring not sitting straight.
