I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question

Do the aftermarket airbags plug into the factory electronic air suspension system or are they stand alone airbags with manual valve or their own pump to operate?

What brand are they

Please remember that I am not there and therefore may need to ask for more information at times

No longer have air bags, replaced with coil springs
Customer: replied 29 days ago.
These are stand alone coil springs and I do not know the brand name

Ok, sells conversion kits that have the inline resistor to install at the harness connectors that went to the old airbags. You can call them or email them and see if they sell them separately.

If not, then you will need to get 2 variable resistors from a place like Radio Shack and install them inline. The connectors were 2 wire connectors. You cut the connectors and install the resistors between the 2 wires.
