Ok so I have my flame suit on and I am ready for the bashing.
I have looked and searched and have not found what I was looking for.

Will the air ride 1000 bags for a 4x4 work for a 4x2?
I saw a post that mentioned a kia sorrento but with no detail
any and all help would be great.

Oh and by the way its a 2008 4x2 path

Rear suspensions are the same on 4x4 and 4x2 so no reason it shouldn't work. Very happy with the airlift on mine. I also have Bilsteins on the rear.

Flame suit? We're not that harsh around here. See if this thread helps.

The AirRide 1000 is super easy to install and works like a charm. I found it easier to remove the spare tire and jack up the rear of the vehicle and you should be good to go.

So I took the leap and added the air ride bags to my 08 path and all I can say is wow. running 10 psi with no load and loving the diff.
To top it off I installed the Garmin docking station with a few mods so it would use my 756t unit with blu tooth.

Thanks all for the help and feedback on this issue

FYI, here's the detail on the 4x2 Airlift issue:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Guess us 2-wheelers are SOL as far as the air bags are concerned. Following are exerpts from my email exchange with AirLift -

"I'm beginning to think I can't use this kit. The inside diameter of the spring is 5.25 inches, so I'm okay there. But as closely as I can measure, it's only 9.25 inches between the upper and lower rubber bump stops. I'm guessing that you require 1/2 inch more than the length of the bag to compensate for the thickness of the protector, correct?

I suppose 4WD Pathfinders have a slightly longer spring, because according to Nissan's specs, the 4WD truck stands 0.4 inches taller than the 2WD model. In fact, I confirmed with my dealer's Parts Dept that they do require different springs. They just weren't able to tell me what the difference was.

After reading AirLift's warranty, even if I were able to make the kit work, I would have no warranty because it would be an "un-cataloged application."

AirLift's response -
"Since you only have 9.25 inches in your coil you would want to use one of our smaller bags. We have one that is 4.9 x 8 that should work fine. Itís kit number 60792 which fits a 2003-2005 Kia Sorento if anyone asks.

We could be a little lenient on the warranty for the bags. If you have the bags for only a few weeks and the seal is starting to leak then we should be able to take care of it."

An 8-inch bag for a 9.25 spring length sounds a little iffy to me. Guess I'll pass until they come up with a dedicated application. If anyone else decides to try the Kia kit, please post your results.

This might be a stupid question but can't you just put on air shocks?

What do you guys think of these..look just like air lift 1000. A little cheaper price to. Maybe I'll go with these.

Looks identical except for the color. Obviously more of the Airlift versions out there and quality seems good...I guess without seeing it and feeling it....hard to say which is better. You can be the first.

@mitchsti - Can you share where did you get it install in the Bay Area? I know it's probably super easy but I don't have access to a location to do the installation.
