Cool Front coil spring to air spring conversion.

Hey all,

I want to throw a crazy question out there...

Has anyone had a hankering to convert their front coil springs (with airbags) to air springs on the Airstream p30 chassis? Meaning; Get rid of those steel coil springs and replacing them with air ride suspension. Has anyone actually accomplished this?

Wouldn't that be the answer to a softer ride, endless leveling possibilities and less shock on the shell as you motor on down the road? Our fabulous rigs already have the air compressor and reservoir for the rear air springs, why not take it to the front?

Has anyone found a air spring and height valve setup that will work?

Am I crazy?!?

Ive done that conversion on a '60 Cadillac, but don't know if they make a set that would handle the load of a motorhome...good question, might be worth a call to ridetech....
