Anyone had issues with Arnott air bags?
A month and a half ago the front right bag let go on my V10 and replaced it with an Arnott bag, which has been great until today. I was at the dealer today for an oil change (because it's $20 more than doing it myself and I don't have to deal with 13qts of oil) and as they were bringing the lift down and the front right tire touched the ground, the new bag blew.
But if you look at the photo, it didn't rupture... It separated from the upper metal collar. With the suspension at full droop, that leads me to believe that there's a height issue with the bag assembly; either the bag material or the lower tube that goes over the strut is too short to allow full travel without coming apart...
Has anyone else had any issues with the Arnott bags? And if I decide to use a different bag, what brand have people had the best luck with?
Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!
