More often, it is the lines. The plastic lines and fittings harden, crack and leaks. The repair shops spray the bags because they are easy to change and they make a good profit selling them. Air lines are cheap and harder to install = not much profit. --- You could convert to regular springs or maybe air shocks.

You could also install new air lines if you find a leak. All you need is some ramps, basic hand tools and time

I guess the air line could be leaking. I saw the bags being sprayed and their was no bubbles anywhere? Is their much involved changing the line? Thanks.

" Is their much involved changing the line?" --- Find the leak. Measure how much line and what fittings you need. Install the new line where the old line was. --- You'll need fittings, pipe thread tape or dope, air lines and tools.
