    The air bags on my front coils keep leaking down, I put new valve stem in, just the little threaded stem, not a whole new one. But still going down, can the whole stem be replaced? Would fix a flat work? I bought the truck used with them already installed years ago, I've never seen one outside of the coil. Trying to sell the truck but it's a half ton and front squats bad without the help from the bags!

    Need to find out where the leak is coming from first. Air up, and soapy water the whole system

    Fix it right. Sounds like ur trying to fix the band-aid with a band-aid.

    I hope you're not one of those unscrupulous sellers you always see on CL.
