OK, so the question is... how do you describe the difference in ride?
It's approaching a year since I fitted the air-suspension and in consideration...

It's like the difference between sitting on a wooden bench to a comfy sofa :)

Well I've had my bags nearly 6 mths now and they are great . But I now have the answer to my previous questions further back on this post .
The top cap is missing from one of my air bags and they are there to protect the bags from the metalwork of the spring cup . I am guessing it dropped during a punctured tyre change . Then didn't reseat properly on removing the jack , then fell out down the road .
I sent off a message to Air-lift this morning requesting help .Will let you know how I get on .

Unless the suspension on a 2002 Bongo has changed significantly from a 1997 one then you should be able to fit them without having to do anything else. It is a bit of a fiddle getting them inside the springs I grant you but the elbow grease needed pays huge dividends. We have recently returned from two weeks in France where we covered loads of miles in complete comfort. Without the airbags we would have rattled to bits. The ride has been improved so much I can't say how pleased we are with the air bags.

You could be correct as the later models have a different part number from the earlier ,they might have a tighter coil profile.

Good Luck.
