How did you deal with the air fittings, did you have individual fittings or T's?

I had t fittings I replaced them with the Parker air brake t swivel push fittings and air brake hose from McMaster Carr $50 for hose and fittings. I coiled up extra hose and spliced into original hose so I can replace the rest of hose and fittings at a later date without having to open up the floor again.

Congrats on getting the new bags installed, and thank you for the part number. We need to do the same on our 88 real soon now.

Rear Sway Bar - ours was out of the bracket when we bought our motorhome. The dealer we bought from fixed this and a few other things, and after 11 years of light use it is still in place.

Rear Diff should take the standard 80W90 diff lube that most open differentials use. You can go synthetic, but fresh clean fluid will be a significant improvement.
