Folks have read the comments on here since Sunday when I had a Polyair bag blow with the sound of a gunshot. Nice 3" split in it. So the GU tray topper came home lopsided with the camp box on on top. Pressures were 26-27 psi

There is recognition given elsewhere to heat and heat shielding, but can't see any installed.

I have neen told I will have to buy a new bag and the other will be sent for testing and I should be reimbursed. I am wondering if others have been faced with this procedure for a warranty claim.

I will put the bags back inside new TJM heavy duty 50mm extended springs too. The local workshop has done about 30 sets of spring replacements and only 2 have the extended shockers Truckster talks of.

Tim & Jan, They have been great but have the feeling this one must have heated. Is on a GU ute and the exhaust must be too close or something. Is a 4.2 intercooled current model.

In other sections of the forum there are comments on shielding in a Pajero of the exhaust. I was travelling at 100kph in Brackstate on a made highway so should not have overheated I would have thought.

As stated below will go with heavier coils from now too and adjustables in the form of bags at lower pressure and some form of shielding too possibly.

I have seen on another site that Queensland will be barring height adjustment while travelling, meaning in cabin air adjustment stopped, also some forms of extended lift stopped too.

I Think the maximum you should inflate them is 25 psi.

Some run them at 30 psi, indeed a friend went to Cape York at that this year. The friends heard at Mt Isa mines they tend to throw them out at 2 years at 50 psi.

This one actually seems thin in the spot by the tear/cut so I guess the heat of the exhaust may have allowed the stretching so it opened up three inches or so with a real bang!
