I am replacing the brake discs on one of our 2390s and after sawing off the bolt that holds the rubber bushing or as case calls it , shock absorber, I got to thinking. Since a new shock absorber is $50, why not replace it with an air bag like the cab of our Freightliner?
I think that I can replace both rear mounts with air bags. Hook in an equalizer valve and lines to a small 12 volt compressor. I have a small air tank I can hook in.
This might sound frivolous , but it is not. I ruptured 2 discs in my back in 2000 and had surgery to enable me to walk without a limp. 2 years ago I reruptured one of those discs. An MRI showed all my lumber discs are bulged and I now have arthritis in my hip and back. Currently I get about 3 epidural shots each year. Narcotic pain meds help me through most days. My doctors are working with me to hopefully keep me from having a fusion. I have lost 60 pounds, huge help.
