I need to replace 2 front airbags on my mc8.  Us Coach has them for 92.55 ea. which is about the same as MCI.  I have had a few people tell me they can be had for around 65 ea. but I have not found them.  Any suggestions?

The best price I found besides US Coach was closer to $130.  And you get a quality Goodyear bag, not offshore junk.

go to a decent truck parts store, they can usually get anything.  Shop around though, I had one place charge me X3 what the other (smaller ) shop down the road wanted.  Also this site

 http://www.finditparts.com/t/categories/suspension-and-steering/air-springs-and-parts/

Might help you get an idea for prices etc...not sure about the bags for a MCI  but lots of the mechanicals for buses were just pulled  off the shelf truck parts.  There is a better site for truck parts that gives dimensions etc of the air springs but I can't find it right now.
here it is   good site for dimensions but the prices seem high.
