Which Airbag/airspring kit 1991 Minibird

I am at the point where I think I need to consider some suspension improvements. My 1991 Bluebird Minibird Chevy P30 Chassis with 6.2 diesel engine leans to the drivers side even when empty. Accordingly I have been looking at airbag spring lifts. My issue is that when I go searching for them online I find that depending on who you ask that there are several different part numbers stated as being correct for the make model year I have (talking about Firestone kits as they seem to be the standard). Has anyone actually installed air bags on a bus like mine and if so which kit number did you use.

You would use the one for a 1991 Chevrolet Motorhome P30 Class A just fill in the blanks with the description above. ($289.51 for 1 set). These things made a huge difference in how the Class C rode, drove & handled. They were easy to install as well.
This post is my opinion. It is not intended to influence anyone's judgment nor do I advocate anyone do what I propose.

I don't even concider using steel springs on anything built in my shop. Air bags are just to easy to install.

If it leaans, it sounds like you have a broken spring. Rather than try to Band-Aid it with airbags...why not replace the bad springs with new ones?
