Air Suspension

Postby TheWalshyWay » June 30th, 2018, 11:32 am

Just had my first prolonged drive with newly installed air, started off with 3.5 bar then settled on 2.5 bar. So here's my question has anyone started off with a continuous line and then split so as to have individual ( left and right) it's just that when I park on sideways on a slight slope the airbags seem to have different amounts of air ! and the effect seems to increase the lean ? and i'm wondering if the same effect happens on the drive ?

I've only ever installed on vehicles with bags piped in tandem,

the benefit gained inflating them individually are; they can hold less or more air
(so a fridge full of beer on N/S needs more to level camper) and secondly on cornering,
the compressed bag isn't forcing air across to the opposite side.

While I think I can see the plus side in this, I don't hit a roundabout at speed as I'm on holiday and it would require doubling up on pipework, electronics & valves in my case so hasn't been worth it.

2.5 bar BTW is about spot on but you could go more if you feel the ride is better
