My left front air spring on Rover 2 has a small visible crack in it and slowly leaks air when the car sits for a few days.

I meant to get it changed but am taking a long trip tomorrow and mildly concerned about it.

On Rover EAS air springs, has anyone ever had one suddenly lose pressure while on the highway? Are these air springs known to "pop" or rather just have slow leaks and slow deterioration?

In an emergency, are there any products I could use to emergency patch an air spring on the road and get going again to limp to the nearest service center?

I appreciate your thoughts.

I've not heard of an air spring just explode violently on the highway so your front or back dips dramatically at speed, and in my experience vehicle will gradually drop to the bump stops and you'll just gangster down the street. This being said, I wouldn't recommend taking a truck with a gash in the air spring for a long trip. Maybe rent a car if this is the only method of transportation, but then this is just my opinion.
