Need help cross referencing for an off the shelf air bellows for the mci5a.  The mci part number is 12-3-660 (may be an upgraded number of 12-c3-51) for a 12 " airbag for the rear suspension.

Anyone know what a goodyear or firestone cross match would be for an off the shelf acquisition?  MCI is backordered.

Thanks,

Tim.
PS. arrived in Charleston SC today and hopefully they will change out the dropbox in short order and I will be on my way again.

FWIW Luke had airbags cheaper than anywhere I could find, and Goodyear.

this site is useful for Firestone.  http://www.truckspring.com/products/Firestone-Double-Convoluted-Bus-Air-Spring__W01-358-7430.aspx

Once again, LUKE DA MAN.

ps ya reckon carrying a spare bag for front and rear really wouldn't take up that much room next trip out?

You could, but the bags I changed were almost certainly 30 years old, so I don't think I will bother...   Cheesy

I'm with Brian unless you are worried about having other bags that are getting old. In that case I'd change them in the convenience of home rather than having to while on the road.

i kept a couple of the best bags from the front and rear as spares when i changed mine. They weren't that old but somebody used hardware store bolts on most of them and the heads caused the bags to start cracking if they didn't have enough air in them. I changed them all just to be safe.
