Air Shocks dry rotting?
 
2 Attachment(s)
Haven't had these under the car too long and they are splitting and in a couple spots bulging like they're ready to burst.

Can I replace the rubber bags or will I have to replace the whole shocks?:confused:

Thanks,
Shad

Not sure but what are they on are the shocks or air ride ? look like air ride to me. JMO
Either way it looks to me like you would have to replace the whole thing . IMHO

Contact Airride, or your installer if you didnt do it yourself. Definintly doesnt look good.

Anyone know if you can just replace the bags or if you have to replace the whole unit?

In most cases that i know of you have to re-place the whole thing, but i agree with the above post call airride they should be able to tell you for sure,
but i really think you will have to re-place the whole thing either way, i know the bags we put on my son's ranger you had to re-place the whole piece to fix it wasen't no changing just the bag.
