Installation went OK. I had to be a little creative in finding a route for the air tubing that stayed away from hot exhaust pipes and the muffler. Some addiitonal mounting clips that could clamp over a rolled sheetmetal seam would have been helpful to hold the tubing, not just the cable ties. I was hoping the air tubing would have been more substantial in wall thickness. Also, I was expecting a more airtight connector on the bottom of the Bladder like a regular tire valve stem, not just a little brass fitting with a regular squeeze pipe clamp to hold the tubing on the brass fitting. It seems to hold the air, though. I have experienced a slight pressure drop over several days. I anticipate keeping these at 10 PSI in the unloaded state so the pressure does not drop below the required 5 psi. They did lift the van nicely, the ride was fine when the van got loaded. I hooked the bladders and air tubes individually, so I used the minimum amount of squeeze connectors on the tubing, to reduce air loss. A diagram showing the air tube routing through or around the coil would have been hepful. Installers should be reminded not to run the tubing through the coil and to leave some loop in the tubing for vehicle bounce.
