    Hey all,
    I have a 2004 T2000 that we use for hauling our race cars. Cruising down I5 we hit a piece of metal in the road and it put a hole in my front air bag on the front drive axle on the right side. It's a slow leak rite in the side of it. The question I have is it safe to patch/ plug it? If so any recommendations on the best way to do so? Not looking for a permanent fix just a fix till I can find the airbag in stock. Thank you

    Just pinch the line with locking pliers and you should be fine, however it may not be legal. Patching won't really work. Airbags are not too expensive yet.

    Unfortunately the lines are metal so pinching them is not an option.

    If you go by most any Truck Pro or any Truck parts store's they'll have a new air bag in stock.

    See if you can get a crossover number on the bag - I’m sure there’s a Firestone number for it, or TRP.

    Fleetpride or Freightliner should have one without getting the shaft from KW.

    Is it an 8 bag system?
     
    cke and Bean Jr. Thank this.
