  • Air bags. What pressure?

    Picked up a second hand '08 Hilux which has rear air bag suspension. Checked the pressure, one has 10psi the other 25psi. Being a farm ute it will carry some tonne plus loads.
    Any idea what pressure they should be?

    Thanks.

    Equal. I assume it has airbags and leafs not just air bags?

    It's really about ride height. Drop the pressures down to near nothing and check the ride height. Then put 20psi in them and see now much it lifts the rear.

    Ideally the ride height loaded should be the standard ride height to maintain handling and suspension angles. They should also be marked with max pressures. Follow this.
