    POP went the air bag...

    Was at a stop in a left turn lane, went to go and heard a POP, then dragging. Pulled off and looked under, one is flat, one is leaning towards the front of the car! Anyone had a bag burst like that before? These bags are less than six years old! Anyone have the make and model of those heavy duty limo bags handy? I'm going that route this time!

    Looks like the Arnott limo bags are A-2220, is that right? Anyone have experience with using these? Some things I've read suggest these are too stiff for comfort.

    I had went with the Ford OEMs. Car air pump rarely comes on since they seem to hold air real good now. Cheapest new I could find them was an obscure seller on Amazon. Maybe someone found a better price elsewhere online. But there sure were some insane prices for them on some other sites.

    Both Arnott and Suncore are quality replacements... and I believe they're guaranteed for ever...
    Suncore was a little bit less costly, as I recall from last winter's experience...

    Never! Much like the AC in this car, over the last 7-8 years I've owned it, I've put too much time/money into the system to give up on it now lol.
