John at the Sprinter Store (Upscale Automotive) in Oregon is a really good resource for Sprinter suspension items; they service Sprinters as well. Ping him about the air bags to see what he says.

I've done AirLifts on three different vehicles, and have been very happy with the results.

Leveling side to side, raising one end, leveling at a campsite, carrying a heavy load sometimes, etc.

Re: Sprinter 2500 Air Spring Air Lift

Sportsmobile has not responded. They initially offered to add airbags -- for a price, but said not to worry about side to side out-of-balance.

Mercedes Benz Body Builder Tech reply was

Do not add airbags since they may impact adversely the adaptive ESP system.



Sounds like airbags may confuse the computer.
