#1 of 12 05 Trailblazer - Replacement Airbags
Jul 13, 2007 (4:15 pm)
Hi everybody - I own an 05 Trailblazer in Quito, Ecuador. It was recently in an accident, and I'm trying to save money buying the airbags in the US and shipping them down here.
Unfortunately, when I look online or even call dealers in the US, they can't use my VIN to look in their catalogs because my vehicle was assembled in Venezuela.
VIN - 8ZNDT13SX5V313809
I need to know how to find the exact part numbers that a US dealer can understand! The parts in Ecuador cost 2000.00 per airbag, and I've found them used in the US for 400.00, for both bags!
Here are the numbers I got directly off the bags:
Driver's side - AB2395QIE8BRD5
Passenger side - AL1177M9YARW29
Impact sensor - AD7445X58M7R and 15077445
On each part, they say "Made in Mexico". Does anyone know if all the parts are the same, no matter where they are assembled? If I buy parts in the US for an 05 Trailblazer, will they fit my Trailblazer here in Ecuador?? Do I run any risks trying this?
Any help, suggestions or ideas will be MOST helpful. Thank all of you in advance, I really need some good advice on this one!!

My 2005 2 wheel drive Trailblazer seems to have a too-soft suspension. It rides really smooth but has an uncontrolled feel about it, especially on the highway. Does any else feel this way, and has anyone done anything about it? The least amount of crosswind makes it extreamly tiresome to control.

Replacing the factory rear sway bar with a heavier aftermarket one helps a lot. I read somewhere it was designed to ride soft to appeal to a certain market group that was being targeted when it was designed. I can't say for sure if that was the case or not.
