I have the Air Lift bags (w/o compressor) and they don't leak at all. I can go months and they will still be the same pressure. You need to do the soapy water test starting with the bags (spray the bags too not just the fittings) allt the way up to the controller in the cab.. By the way, they work great...

I'm running Air Lift on my H3 and have had no leaks; running Firestone on my Silverado and no leaks. Neither system has a built in compressor.

I recently installed Air Lift bags (w/o compressor) and I have not noticed any leaking.

When you haul your trailer how much pressure do you put in your bags. I have the Ride Control on my Ram 1500. I had 40 lbs on each side during the last trip and it seemed OK.

I would consider removing the compressor from the system. Mount the air fill valve near each bag and fill them to 75 lbs. Check to see if they are leaking. Then you will have a good Idea where to go next.
