I have a set of inflatable air shocks on my Nissan pickup for heavy loads 
and they work quite well. The gentleman (friend) that I purchased the truck 
from installed them as he used it for hauling lead products. He replces his 
trucks after ten years. His replcement truck a Toyota Tundra, did not have 
air shocks availbale for it. So, he installed inflatable air bags instead. 
These seem to be working equally well for him.

Can you give me your advice (or experience ) on my problem: I tow an old
trailer ( 1300 kg ) with my rover P6 3500 to go to meeting of old teams.
The rear of my rover is too low solo, more low with the trailer.
I bought a new head AL-KO (with pads like in brake calipers ) ,it's better
like that but not enough.
A friend fit 2 big leaf springs ,each side of the head of the trailer ,to
tow with a rover P5B, old solution and heavy.
Monroe had doing inflatable shocks absorbers: impossible to find in Europe.
My car have 100 000km:is it necessary to fit new rear spring.
Alone the high of the spring is right.I don't verified the high between
Second question: what do you think of polyuréthane bushes?is it better for
towing ? Is it more noisy inside the car ?

Au revoir           denis
