Own a 1993 Winnebago Brave.23RC.
To replace air bag inside coil springs need to know if it is a P-30! Neither Winnebago nor chevy can tell me! It IS built on a Chevy chassis with a 454 engine.

Also, while we're at it, here is a link to know how to decipher the vin of your coach.

Do not replace the coil spring airbags. Replace with Henderson Front Coil Springs, I didn't and I am sorry, My new Bags didn't last 4 yrs before one of them split the seam on the bottom. As it turns out the coach drives and handles great without them.

If you are going to keep the rig, get the Henderson replacement coils springs.
Or if funds do not allow for replacement get the replacement air bags, but not from GM.

P 30 front coil springs with the air bags. The Air bags are NOT a comfort installed system. They are required to be installed and inflated to get the chassis to correct driveability and weight classification for steering. Now, If the after market coil springs do that job, then get the coil springs replaced and forget about using the Air Bags as a replacement. That way you do not have to constantly air the bags up and check them or replace them when they wear out. Doug

PS, remember this is required for the aftermarket springs.

BE SURE TO HAVE YOUR FRONT AXLE WEIGHT BEFORE ORDERING. WE NEED THE ACTUAL WEIGHT AND NOT GVW OR WHAT IS LISTED ON THE VIN PLATE. PLEASE PUT THIS WEIGHT IN THE "ORDER NOTES" BOX AT CHECKOUT

The Motorhome IFS's are all P32.
Airbag replacement is a joke and a complete waste of time and money.
Henderson Super Steer coils is the only way to go and ordered according to the front end weight.
Tip...Go heavier on the coils, if anything.
