You need 8 valves, 1 fill and 1 dump for each bag. It can be done with 4 valves if you get 3 position valves. Havair do manifolds that control everything. Probably your best bet

Range rover suspension won't have anywhere near enough travel surely?

There you go, that's not a bad price either.

Havair seem to be a UK importer from airbagit in the states. Airbagit stocks those manifolds but with wiring looms and pressure senders. I'm going to contact Havair and ask if they can supply them like that

That's the kit I want, but the fact its in the states makes it difficult. hopefully Havair can sort me out

It wont go any lower if the leafs are left in. Youll need shorter uprated shocks then replace the springs with the bags on some sort of mount.

How much adjustement do these rangerover bags give?

if thats all you want it for, id jsut leave everything as is, and mount a couple of bags on the rear axle with a couple of 3way valves and a compressor so you can jsut raise it when you need to.
