    so long story short blew a airbag n/s/f . replaced both fronts with Aerosus my mate has is own garage helped me fit (no instructions included ) think we had it right.went on road trip broke down .got home thought it was calibration tried allsorts rebuilt compressor etc etc today bought in on ramp to remove and clean cross link valve and garage tells me can hear faint leek maybe from top nut tells me to get new seals.
    i contact AEROSUS they tell me to purchase new part ( airbag only ) and send back old part if defective would reemberse i have asked for o rings they say dont useally supply o rings only.Not sure what to do now trying to do on tight budget but not winning do i throw good money after bad or get new different parts any advise deeply appreciated. Ihave read on other threads someone else had leeking pattern parts but did not say if got round it .thanks hopefully Andrew

    The general opinion is......dont ever fit them. A search on here and on the tinter web will tell you why.

    Hi

    Do hope u get on ok and indeed a right pain when u expect something to work correctly

    I fitted complete front struts from Dunlop on my D3 , was like night and day

    They didn’t come with any new nuts and bolts , so bought all new ones

    Really pleased with them, don’t creak earthier like some struts can

    Fingers crossed u get the refund and no hassle

    There are makes to avoid, like Britpart fuel pumps for the 38'..
    Britpart air suspension parts..
    Dunlop's part hmmm.. Good choice. It's a case of homework and doing what you are doing and asking fellow and female owners for their best info.:cool:
    Sometimes we all make mistakes... ;)

    Thank you very much.
    I did some work on an L322 for a client, he wanted to replace both front shock assemblies as one of the bags had been changed and the other had a slice through it. He bought a pair from e ay.... I warned him about the quality of said units but he wasn't concerned. It was stated in the box on the info sheet that they were actually using continental air socks.. debatable but it's been three months so far but not a recommendation...
    I bought the Brit part air bags for my 38' after I had just bought it and before I knew the great world of landyzone... They lasted 2yrs before crazing up on the finish.. they were already 6yrs old off the shelf... Now.....it's all four on Dunlop's. Massive difference in quality.:cool:

    I've used jgs4x4 before.
    For my brake sphere and my shocks.... Never ending story with the shocks as they replaced them under warranty twice so far. I'd recommend them. Not affilia-flip-flop-ted....
