can you replace a air bag with a spring
I guess you could. Why would you want to?
airbags have explosive force. do you want a spring in your face at bullet speed? I'm with tenspeed, what kinda nut? is there a reason to circumvent safety? planning a murder?
Not legally. It's actually against the law to knowingly and deliberately disable a vehicle's air bag system. HTH. - Jim
i hope this is a joke question..but to answer the question, i guess you could.
Good grief fellas you guys know better than that. I put coil springs in place of what some people call "air bags" which is a misnomer for air bladders on the rear suspension of my Town Car when they wore out. So, yes robinson you can, about $800 installed
Lots of people call them "air bags". I wish they wouldn't, it is misleading
It makes a very funny visual..a spring coming out of the steering wheel
Well Gary if you try real hard, I am confident you can do something really stupid today. Pour salt in your coffee instead of sugar. that should do it
Wow, robinson45,you sure stirred up some entertaining responses to a simple question!! While I believe DavidH25 answered your quesiton, I just had to chime in - so many people jump first, then check the water depth!! BTW, I have a Lincoln Continental and I've noticed many air spring replacement kits on there that seem to be rather inexpensive..
Noticed the kits on eBay....
the mechanical world sees them as "air springs" not "air bags"--------threw us a curve...lets just see how much of a stumblebum we can make of the gurus, shall we?
haha i figured it was about shocks, and yes you can. i prefer shocks compared to airbags.
