yeah I googled "air ride in an austin mini" and this is the only forum that came up that actually had people contemplating on doing it. Rayvern out of the uk does hydraulics but its not a great setup however its the only kit out there

so if i understand you have a morris UTE? those have full frames right? i wonder if you could get a Mustang II subframe and weld it in? my traveler is a unibody like the saloon so i am looking at the fatman frame kit. possibly even an s10 blazer frame might fit. that would make it way easier if i went that route.

but if its something small here is what i was trying to convey before.

just the airbag itself. this is normally used on big rig trucks and is used to cushion the cab. i'm sure they are available outside of here. not sure of the price though. hope it helps.

I think I hve found a solution to this problem. You can use universal brackets to fit coilovers for mini suspension.(has been done before) or you can buy a kit here http://www.minispares.com/Product.aspx?ty=pb&pid=37266

All you would need to find is a set of air struts that fit the critera of the coilover so it doesnt rub ( SKW 7000 by ride tech has a few options).

The front would be easy enough to do however the back I think would need to be turreted so the strut did not rub on the wheel well.

the only thing I forsee is you only being able to lower your truck 2 inches or so. Not really worth the money I dont think.
