anyone got any experiance fitting air bag kits?

I've swapped out air susp units before on old X5 - easy peasy, but just away to start researching (rear only) kits for the Sprinter.

Previous use of the van and our trailer have the rear a bit low for my liking, so looking to give it a bit of extra 'spring' to level the van out a bit when fully loaded with trailer.

Any words of wisdom?

Might as well try spec one with a decent size tank, then you can have onboard air as well which would be prime for cleaning bikes, tyres ect
