    Air bag suspension stiffeners

    Well since I pushed out the rear wheels 2 inches I'm loving it. That was however until the kids and I went to get groceries and my fenders hit my tires at every little bump. Well luckily I half expected this and planned accordingly. I've had these airbags for over a year wondering what I would do with them. Today the wait was over. Got them installed in the rear and for whatever pickup truck they were for they fit pretty damn good in the Micra. I can even adjust ride height with them. Got them at 45psi now max is 50.Name:  DSC_0037.jpg

    Took the on ramp with even less body roll, after the bars up front and these in the back there is hardly any now. Ride was a little rougher, those dips in the highway where I'd be bouncing like a trampoline are now quick and fast. Trade of of course is I can feel the roughness of the road a lot more. However there is plenty of room for adjustment between tire pressure and bag pressure, I may drop the psi in the bags by about 10PSI. See how that feels.

    Is there a part number ? I tried searching 28021 but nothing comes up.
    What vehicle do you say those were originally for?

    Not sure what the part numbers were for mine as they were open box. This page can help just get your measurements and they will tell you what kit you need.
