I just bought some for mine and I have seen replacement info but I have not started to search for it again. As I remember, you push the new bags in to the spring from below, then hookup and do an overnight pressure hold test on them. It didn't look too hard.

I would suggest replacing the springs. It is a permanent fix. I replaced mine for about 30% more. The labor cost is about the same and the front end alignment is less of a problem.

I do not have air bags anymore. The PO replaced them with the blue super steer springs. I like them a lot no maintenance.

I did it a few years ago, hard to do without reading about somebody that did it and posted the tricks to get the 10 pound bag in a 5 pound space.
Boil it and hot it can be compressed, but without a bunch of screw clamps it would have been impossible to push in through the hole under the spring.
