Bought a set of these and having them fitted this week.
Ayone got any experience on what pressures i should run in them both unloaded and with a van with 300 kg ball weight?

Vehicle is LC100 Sahara with AHC. I would like to keep the ability to raise and lower when not towing - so need advice on minimum pressure for normal driving and max pressure for towing van.

Hi. If you have Active Height Control on a Sahara LC100 then I'm pretty sure you already have Air Bags in place of Springs in the rear. The ones I have seen don't have coil springs. Cheers,Bob.

If you mean these http://www.truckspring.com/suspension-parts/helper-springs/air-spring-kits/firestone-coil-rite.aspx
They are a helper not a lift and lower. They will help support the weight not lift the car, Minimum pressure usually 5psi, max around 35psi they come with instructions as to Psi.

As far as I can remember, those pressures were written in the instructions, when I put in Poly Air Bags ! (back in 2004)
Not real sure about Firestone helper bags, but can imagine it to be similar.

I put the valves inside the Fuel Filler cap, and used a bike pump to add air, as I found an air pump at Servo's too out of control. Just 1 pump er 1 psi
Simply awesome !

Cheers
