      I picked up a rear AirRide kit for Eurovan on eBay and have it installed. It doesn't really make the van sit higher when unloaded, but with the trailer on or a lot of cargo the back end doesn't sag much, and the ride is firmer.

      J.M. If you find any air - bag or other type, please post here or reply. I have been looking also. At times I need more ground clearance. I will look a while longer before I go to a lift kit, thanks, Tom M. http://www.MenzelEngineering.com

      i have had no luck with a air bag kit, looks like this would be a custom install, the rear would be easy due to the rear spring set up, the front would take som enginering, keep this posted up, and will try to find out as much info as can or may start a build thread.

      they don't make a kit AFAIK. It'd be a full custom job & the front will be a fabrication nightmare the way it's set up & lack of room. If it were easy or a kit existed we'd have surely seen one by now on SOME forum. A guy here had an air ride place sponsor a car show he puts on I assumed so he'd get a set up for his van cheap or free & it hasn't happened yet so I'd say they found out how hard it was. Maybe he'll post up more info if he sees this
