Hey guys Im looking for alittle guidance, where would I find an airbag setup for an 88 astro van weighing in at about 6500 pounds? I have never looked for these and dont know the reputable manufacturers out there for this stuff. Im thinking I may need to put a stronger rear axle in, it is basically stock.

I was going to sell this van but I cant, I love having it too much, and when I take it to competitions I want it to be very roadworthy. It rides good now but the suspension is maxed out, the front coils are bigger and heavier duty than stock and they are starting to sag, and the rear fiberglass leaf springs(stock ones) and coil over shocks(added on for support) are wearing out.

What are some options? Not looking for "top of the line" here, just something to handle the weight better, and Im definitely not looking to lay frame or anything, just a heavy duty suspension, thanks for any info----Dinty
