Introduction
Air suspension parts Range Rovers are hard to find at reasonable prices. Also, RR owners are always looking for some solution to bypassing the air suspension sustem when it breaks down.


I recently stumbled across a company in Australia that deals in all manner of inexpensive air suspension components (including emergency bypass kits) for a variety of vehicles including Range Rovers. For example, they deal directly with Dunlop, makers of the original Range Rover air suspension system, and stock all the parts we RR owners need including spring bellows and compressors at amaxingly low prices. Even if you do not lie in Australia, you will still come out well ahead by having them ship your order to you.

Normally we do not devote pages to specific companies or suppliers on Rangerovers.net. However we are making an exceptionn in this case due to the unique opportunity that Airbag Man's products present to fellow Range Rover Owners. This page is certainly not intended to coerce readers into purchasing from this source without checking others -- for information and price comparisons with other suppliers of the same parts, please refer to our general air suspension parts sources listings. If you do decide to purchase from Airbag Man, please make sure you mention Rangerovers.net as they have kindly agreed to help support this website based on the inquiries they receive.

Below are listed the main components they supply that are specifically relevant to Range Rover owners.

Air Springs and Bellows
Airbag Man
supply air bellows worldwide for front (their part # AB0001) and rear (their part # AB0002) of all Range Rover models, with their own specially made versions produced by Dunlop (same factory as original units) thus providing the assurance of performance at least as good as original units (they state the Arnott's units appear to be quite short once aged).  Their export price is A$110 - about US$80. (Prices for Australian customers are significantly higher due to having to include local import duty and sales taxes). See photo at top of this page for illustration of these units.

Airbag Man's rear bellows are longer than the factory units as the originals start to leak and fall off once aged; this also allows a small suspension lift as has been carried out by Hardy Neale of Australia recently -- see the Hardy Neale Air Suspension Lift Page.

They can also supply the upper and lower plastic spring ends or complete spring assemblies.

Compressors & Rebuild Kits
Compressor Rebuild KitThe genuine compressor is still expensive at the time of writing (November 2003) and costs about $440 at the dealer.
Atlantic British has them for $389.95. The lowest price I have seen for new ones  lately is $375 (with free shipping) at SpeedyCarParts.com. More recently, I found that Airbag Man in Brisbane, Australia, sells them for A$400 or US$300 and ships inexpensively worldwide. (Prices to Australian customers are considerably higher due to local mport duty and sales taxes).

I also recently discovered that Airbag Man sells a complete Thomas compressor service kit that includes new sleeve and piston/conrod assy (see photo), sells for A$200.00
or about US$150 to worldwide customers. (Prices for Australian customers may be higher due to local import duty and sales taxes). (Photo: Genuine Thomas rebuild kit from Airbag Man)

Emergency Kits
Emergency Valve
A very inexpensive emergency air suspension bypass kit is available from Airbag Man, an Australian manufacturer who ship worldwide. Their Range Rover Safety/Emergency "E" Kit (part number DRK001, A$200 or about US$150) enables each air spring to be inflated remotely and independently. The system locks out the air supply from the valve block and allows you to add air from any source such as a service station pump or another vehicle with an onboard air supply. You can also isolate a leaking spring so it won't cause all the others to deflate. The kit comes complete with 4 lockout valves, 4 remote inflation valves, tubing, tube cutter and full instructions. (Picture at right: one of the lockout and inflation valve combinations included in the kit)
