Lugsakke

Postby Coltenator » 10 Jan 2012 09:03

Ek hoop iemand kan my help met die vraag :think:
Ek sleep n 2011 explorer met my 06 4.8
Sy is stock standard,soos die engels man se.
Waneer die patrol gelaai is en die karavaan gehak is,sak die gat redelik baie en kry ek daai V lyn.

Nou is die vraag? :helpsign:
AS ek twee lugsakke agter in laat sit en hulle pomp soos nodig of per vrag, sal dit die wip uithaal as ek sleep en die rig se lyn verbeter.
Is daar enige nadele aan die instalasie verbonde ens?

Dankie manne

Talk to Tinus Lotz, he does exactly that.

As far as I can tell, it fixes all the problems you mentioned, and the only disadvantage is that your flex is reduced when they are pumped up.

The air helpers are a wonderful invention. They will sort out your problems. With what you have explained, your only answers is air helpers. They cost on the region of R 2750.00 fitted.

I fitted airhelpers at the back and it does not really influence the flex that much. See picture below, the Patrol was heavy at the back and the airhelpers pumped to 3 bar. Due to the suspension lift (2 inch) I also fitted spacers in the coils to keep the airbags in place.

Fit the airhelpers and if you are concerned about flex get the installer to link them with a valve of some sort that you can open so it forces air from the wheel thats being pushed up into the opposing wheel , have seen this in practice and works very nice off road , have even seen a more extreme vehicle that has an airbag on every wheel and a cross link of sorts so it pushes the air to the wheel with the least weight on it , that thinged seemd like it was glued to the rocks

Ek het toe met Gremeltech in die kaap gepraat en hulle sal eers volgende week die "kit" he vir my patrollie.
sal dan al die hardware koop en laat instaleer,moet se ek sien uit daarna om met n vrag te kan ordentlik sleep
en nie meer wipplank te ry nie.
Weereens dankie aan almal vir al die raad .
