This video is designed to inform ASE certified mechanics how to remove and replace a failing Volvo SPA platform rear air with a new Arnott designed air spring.
Arnott’s aftermarket rear air spring A-3307 fits Volvo SPA platform models equipped with optional electronically controlled air suspension including the 2016-2019 XC90, 2018-2019 XC60 and 2017-2019 V90 Cross Country, excluding hybrid models. The Arnott air spring features a cross-corded, multi-ply, ContiTech air sleeve engineered for extended service life. Arnott assembles this air spring in the USA with Tier 1 components such as heavy duty crimp rings, high impact resin top and piston, dust cover and 6MM air line fitting for a fast installation. This universal air spring fits the left or right side of the vehicle.
Note: Arnott recommends replacing these air springs in pairs.

After years of searching I came across this DC 103 in Maryland for a fair price and it seemed as though most everything was there so a deal was made and she hitched a ride west to a new home where I eventually plan on restoring it. right off of the trailer the rear brakes appear to be hung up so the komatsu will help with the unloading! Subscribe to see move videos in the future from this project, hopefully next time she will be freed up and running!

Firestone Industrial Products Company, (FSIP), a leader in developing technology to eliminate vibration in global transportation demonstrates its body and axle control air damping technology. This video was first shown at the 67th Bi-Annual Internationale Automobil-Ausstellung (IAA) Commercial Vehicles Conference in Hanover, Germany.
By using air instead of hydraulics, Firestone Airide™ Pro air damping technology delivers an integrated damping system that is a lighter-weight alternative to traditional damping modules. This simplifies a commercial truck’s suspension system by channeling air into the trailer’s suspension. The lighter-weight equipment also allows for load proportional damping, permitting more on-board cargo and making hauls more efficient.
The result is true body and axle control, which can lead to longer tire life, lower total cost of ownership and improved ride quality. Firestone Airide Pro air damping technology delivers a consistent ride performance and helps reduce maintenance requirements by limiting the impact on the road.
Now that I knew this thing still worked, at least somewhat, it was time to fix what went wrong and replace the missing pieces with what I had laying around.
This was another one of those “redneck” fixes where nothing has to look original or perfect, it just has to work again. That being the case, there are no holds barred on what to use for the repair.
I found there was a device at the top of the cylinder head (I presume to release excess pressure as the unit is running) which had failed. It had an air vent that would stick open once the machine got to about 100 PSI, and started blowing air out. Because the piston is very hot, the air being expelled was as well, which actually melted a small hole in the housing. That clued me in where to look, the fix was my own idea.
I don’t think the wheel is going to end up working out; hot glue is not going to hold it. I can try to epoxy it in, but I think instead I might have a rubber foot that will fit over it, which I can then fill with hot glue and that will hold.
