Front Air Suspension options.

Yet another air suspension thread.

I have a 40' AmTran Genesis FE bus.

While I have been able to locate pricing/availability for rear air suspension from Hendrickson, I have been told that Hendrickson will provide absolutely no engineering support for steering axle air suspension on my bus due to liability reasons.

I know from reading other threads that helper bag kits are an option, but I have only seen kits that go up to 5k weight.

Ideally, I would like to have full air suspension rather than just a helper system.

Are there any other manufacturers or options for front air ride, or am I stuck with just the rear?

It is available when the bus is new, but rare as hell.

Expect prices of 5 to 7 grand for a used system to install.
