Default rear air bag part numbers

I need some help finding part numbers and suppliers for the rear air bags on my coach. It failed inspection for the rear air bags but they need part numbers to get replacements. Before I have them take one out of the bus, anyone have this info handy?

Marcus,

Pretty sure the rear on yours is the same as the FC. FS 9039 Sent this off to Tom Sorrentino (87 PT 38 )and he switched one out last week based on this. Here are photos. The first is the new bag and the second is the old one. The Firestone numbers have been the same for a long time.

Part number is FS9039? Guess FS stands for Firestone? Wonder if drive axle and tag are the same?

Pretty sure they are but, better wait for a PT guy to confirm.

If the info I found in the chassis parts catalog is correct, each axle uses different airbags/part numbers.

On mine, it seems that 0961250 (Bluebird number) crosses to W01-358-9039 (Firestone) or 100-358-9039C (Ridewell).

Now to decide if I have them install them or try this myself as Jim did to Tom's coach...

Markus,

The numbers Curt posted are what I went by. I ordered from here:
http://www.truckspring.com/.
Jim Nichols changed my tag axle bag for me. Not to take anything away from Jim, but the drive axle bags didn't look as easy to get to.

Default Group Air Spring Purchase

Suggestion: Anyone care to take on an Air Spring group purchase? Stephen? A forum member did this about 6 years ago, Wanderlodgeforum I believe. I paid $90.00 /average for 10 Air Springs. I believe it was the same company that Tom just posted.

They said they were dry rotted and leaking. Not sure what you have in Texas, but here in PA there is a safety inspection where they check things like brakes, tires, lights, turn signals, etc. On an air system like ours they check that too and this is what they caught. Makes some sense as my coach would air down in about a day of sitting. When I picked it up tonight to take it to the generator guy, they said its about 3-4 hours for them to do it. I think I'll pass and let them do it, 3-4 hours of their time translates into 2-3 times as long for me, some busted knuckles, maybe broken parts, lots of grease and swearing. Some things are better off left to the pros.

Trucksprings did seem to have the best prices I could find. We'll see what my place comes up with.
