    Exclamation BDS Air suspension lift problem

    I recently had the BDS 4" air suspension lift kit installed on my 2016 EcoDiesel. I continue to have problems with the truck air ride suspension. The right rear bag has been replaced twice, once by a BDS authorized dealer, and once by a Ram dealer. Neither could find an installation error, both suggested that it was a payload issue. Iím trying to understand how this could be a payload problem, since the payload, a 4 Wheel brand pop-up camper (about 900 pounds), hasnít changed. I used the truck/camper for 2 years before installing the lift kit without any problems. Since the lift kit install, the rear airbag has ruptured twice, each time immediately after loading the camper back in the truck bed.
    BDS says that the payload doesn't change with their kit installed, but obviously something has changed.
    Any help greatly appreciated, I'd like to use my camper again!

    Sounds like something is rubbing the air bag might only do it when compressed.
