Default AA air suspension

Evening all,
Not into all that lowering stuff, I'd rather get to places off the road
However with a fresh Ex AA in the drive the question is what do the airbags I hear about do & will a little fertle (play with) soften the ride slightly.
There are probably threads in existence but I can't track em down.
Instructions appreciated
Thanks in advance

the air bags give an extra load capacity to the srping. ie when pumped up will harden the spring and level the van when loaded.
min pressure 10 psi max 50psi

the bags r classed as air asist and as rallyraid said do give extra load capacity or thow is only about 50 kgs i think is states but thay do make a big difrence when your loaded rite up,
just pump them up to level the van and all so make the handling wen loaded alot better, takes out all the wollow the you normaly get when loaded up to the limit.

as for psi mine had a sticker stateing
min 1 bar
max 5 bar,
is about 15psi to 74psi

but if you dont have enything in you van rember to lower the psi as if you have it pumed right up it lifts of the load comp whitch basickly turns off the back brakes and if you brake hard the frount tends to lockup.

do work well wen you park on a slop for the nite to kip can get a 2-3" lift/drop
