air rite air bags

I have air rite air bags that came with the truck when I bought it. I don't use them much a couple of days I decided to use them so I added about 15psi maybe a little more but they deflated within seconds.not to familiar with air bags any advice on what's wrong and estimates and how much it would cost to fix them.oh and also who can fix them ei . firestone???
Thanks

If you are referring to the Firestone Ride-Rite kit, they need to stay inflated to atleast 5 psi to prevent bottoming out and damaging the bags.

I'm guessing by the rate of deflation that the bags are ripped and will need to be replaced. You can spray soapy water on the bags and airlines while you pump air in the bags to find the leaks.
