Airbags

Can anyone give me a diagram or an explanation of how to install suspension airbags, i just bought a 1980 Chevy LUV and the guy gave me a set of airbags for front and rear. He already has the compressor installed because of the fact it has airshocks, but id like to get these bags installed.

did he give you any valves and switches? how do you plan to run them just front and back or all four corners? what compressor are you using? tank size? just need more info to help you do it right...i just did a full front,back and side to side set up using an air manifold it worked out pretty good and was easier than trying to all the regular valves

you need 2 valves per wheel if you going f/b/s/s one for lift one for dump wire them to your switches the way you want your prolly going to need to fab up some brackets to hold the front bags in and on the rear your going to need to pull out the leafs and build a 2 or 4 link set up...try airbagit.com or suicidedoors.com they will have all you need and more than likely some diagrams
