I purchased Coilrite Air bags from trucksprings in US and as my Patrol has 50mm lift I needed the Blocks to go beneath the air Bags
I found they are available from TJM and purchased them today here in Geelong at cost of $20 ea
I was going to make them up myself but as i found these it will save me the trouble
They also include a bolt and Nyloc nut to secure them to spring mount

Got mine today. Question you may be able to answer. The black top blocks, do they go flat side down or up. I assume flat down against the bag. Instructions do not specify.

I havent fitted mine yet but took a look underneath the other day
As best as i can determine the blocks supplied go flat side down and the rebate should fit inside the coil support

I hope that is correct

Good luck

Let me kow how you get on as I wont be fitting mine until a couple of weeks time

The Blocks for the base if you have a lift come supplied with bolts

Ummm, you don't need to fit spacers to air bags. Air bags work by squeasing through the sides of the coils and effectivly stiffening up the springs, not by taking the weight of the vehicle instead of the spring. When I put my 2" lift in the back I enquired about the same and then was instructed not to. I didn't and they have been spot on for over a year like that, work just as they did without the lift. In fact the theory goes that they will probally last longer as they are not under as much stress at full articulation etc...
