I finally had the spare dollars up to get Darkie some much needed assistance in the rear. He had polyair bags fitted and should now sit level when loaded up with gear and the trailer and not drag his backside on the ground.

What maintenance is now required to look after the air bags apart from leaving at least 5 PSI in them??

Cheers Kev

Hey Kev
surely the sag in the rear would have just balanced out the inherent sag in the front end of an LC, and made the rig sit straight albeit low. LOL.

Towing the recovery car trailer to pick up broken down Missans really sucks as Missans are just land based anchors LOL

I was just looking out for on comming LC owners to level out the load and not blind them in the headlights when towing the above broken down Missans he he he

Kev

I find with my 100 series (not chopped) that leaving about 10psi in them gives great handling without compromising the ride set up. Experiment around with yours until you find the happy balance
Cheers

HI kev.

I have just fitted polyairs to the paj. Was told to keep 10psi when unloaded.Will drop them to 5psi & see how it goes.
No other maintenance required.
PS Trying to forget the blood line. At least they are living in NSW LOL

G/day fellas, yep,you`re right Vince, I have had polys on the 80 since I bought it in 93.Its fitted with a drawer system, probably carries 40kg all the time,I run them at 5psi round home,just to stop them from pinching, Ive never had any trouble at all,put em up to 15 when the vans on, sits nice and level and rides well. No probs in stony country either.

Regards Keith C.

When you start working over here then I am definately going to put an alarm syatem in Darkie to keep you away from him LOL

The bags got rid of a fair bit of body roll as well, means I can drive corners a bit harder now :)
