Does anyone know where I can find these? We have an 8' popup camper that we tow with our 850 T5R. With standard suspension, the rear end sags terribly and makes steering iffy as well. I looked at airbags but frankly don't want to modify this car away from stock if I don't have to. The 740 wagon has them and they work great.

Anyone know of a source? I've exhausted all the typical manufacturers but have maybe missed something.

Thanks for any help.

Nivomats? You'll need those and the correct springs. They're not air shocks, though. I don't think the 850 sedan was ever offered with Nivomats so you'll have to check on compatibility.

My 760 Turbo sedan had Nivomats and they made towing a breeze.

I would try a pair of overload springs first with a new set of rear shocks.
NAPA list a "Heavy Duty" spring which maybe the same thing as what I refer to as an overload spring:
Part Number: ATM 8614556
Product Line: Altrom Imports
IMPORTANT INFO: w/o Nivomat Self-Leveling Suspension,Heavy Duty,Sold as Pair

Of course contact IPD too and see what they have.
