I had been wanting to try using OE gm rear air struts, but more up to date ones.. And boy was it a good thing i did.. The aftermarket air struts were pretty stiff to me didnt allow the car to bounce much and i want a smooth gliding floaty ride.... Although i need to check the part numbers to kno which ones i actually hav..
put on rear air struts for from a lucerne or deville the guy at the junk yard didnt kno which exactly it came from he just knew it was 1 or the other .. But sold em to me for only 35 bucks for the pair and in very good condition!!
Installed em and test drove a little bit ago!! And a much more comfortable ride from the rear! Just giving a lil info for anyone wantn a slightly smoother ride..
"They are gas charged & also uses air ride"
Sounds like a great deal & that they are working well!
Would be interesting to know what part #* you do have there.
On My PA the only new replacement air shocks available were the Delco'*.
I am happy with them, a bit firm, but still floaty. Did tighten up the back end a bit too.
You can see my old ones were really rusted, tired and cracked.
The first pair i took off looked exactly like that! Lol..
Ive used the monroe max air shocks and they were ok just wasnt soft enough.. Gave a pretty firm ride and didnt seem to add any dampering to the bumps to me...
I even tried using the other "no air" monroe shocks they make.. "SO NOT WORTH IT" a big waiste of money.. They were so firm!! No softness at all...
But these im really liking!
Cool those gas/air look very interesting indeed! Wonder what car they are from..??
Shawn can you get a shot of the side/whole car on level ground, so I can see the ride height/fender clearance of the rear please. Thanks!
Will do! But my front sits kinda high, i believe i was givin the wrong coil springs when orderd and it was to late to do anything after installing em lol.. I hav more on order from the auto part store so it will sit how it suppose. I can say tho! It does sit higher in the back a little more than before!
