    Well I blew one of the air-lift air bags on the chrerokee, went to a place that puts new coil springs on, guy said he could put some heavy duty ones on that would eliminate me having to bag it again. I also talked to him about tembrens (sp), he said the new coils would do the job. He wants $400 to insall the tembrens and versus $250 for the spings installed. What do you guys think, should I go for the tembrens or the new coils. Thanks..

    And when you take the plow off it will ride high in the front and stiff as hell.

    So, what would you do...., are you saying that then new coils would make the front end high and ride stiff or the tembrens would cause this....

    Coils would be to stiff of a drive with the plow off.

    I would use air shocks Life time guarantee from Auto Zone. Put the plow on pump them up take the plow off let the air out. the problem with using stiffer springs or timbrins is they add stiffness to the suspension ALL THE TIME. when you take the plow off you still have the stiff springs or the timbrins.

    I thought they don't make air shocks that fit a 99 cherokee sport anymore. if they do do you know the brand and part number.

    Why did the air bag blow? Too much/little air pressure? Wear thru? Since I have Air-Lift in the front, I want to be ready!!! BTW, you can buy a replacement air bag for about $40.

    Was the red plastic washer-type thing (about 3-4 inches in diameter and about 3/8 inch thick) bolted into the bottom of the bump stop to prevent that from happening?
