I have had them in my Elkie for a year so far, the only problem I had was with an air line. It got pinched at the bottom of the bag where it enters the spring through the perch. Other than that no problems. When you run the air lines try to leave a loop of line somewhere on the run so you'll have a little to play with if they get cut down near the axle.
I'm a carpenter and use my truck for work. I frequently have heavy loads in the bed, they work well for me.

I had no problem with mine !! They even help with racing ! I put about 5 more pounds in the right bag to help in the hookup on the starting line ! (I use two air valves) I have another set to put on my 87 ! KYB shocks & these are a great ride ! :beer:

I've used them for about 10 years on my '87, with an onboard compressor. I had to replace them this year because the rubber got old, cracked and leaked. 10 year service life isn't bad. They are great when you need to haul something heavy.

We used to install AirLift products on RV applications and they make a a superior product . I have a set for my 86 El but haven't installed them yet.I may not need them since I don't use my El for hauling or towing heavy loads. Great product,install with confidence !! WP

Same here, I've had them on Gumby since 2001. Even after sitting parked for six years they are still holding air. Definitely improved hookup and ride.

I've had them on my '86 for about 6 years now with no problems. I also installed a set on my GMC Yukon for towing, and they have been great. They're a lot more durable than they look.
