Default Air level system replacement

Does anyone know of a cheap replacement for my rear air ride shocks? Just a simple set of air shocks to hook into my factory air ride system? Cheapest set I found was $110 each! My one shock is blown out in 3 places!

Did you try Monroe struts? I believe they make an air strut replacement.

I had airshocks reinstalled in my 91.... I believe they cost around $160 (Cdn) each. (I could be wrong.... I'd have to check that $)
Not sure on the brand name/type, but they work excellent.... I'll see if I still have the receipt around here, or I'll ask my mechanic next time I see him.

If you can use shocks that work with the air ride definately go that route... they may cost a bit more ... but they are so worth it.

Went to the advance auto web site but they don't carry what I'm looking for.

I have an 89 SSE. I think I'll give them a call tomorrow and see what they can find.
I was swapping my wheels around today and noticed my other side is blown out too!!!
I also was cleaning out my trunk and noticed the tops of the air ride shocks(struts)w/the air lines and a plug going into them(for the air pump)--so that was interesting.

I can help ya and ill get you a cheaper price. Let me know what you want Monroe, Kyb, or Sachs?

Kyb is a air replacement.

Monroe has air systems and so does Sachs.

Monroe $79.00 each shipped in the US. To Canada we charge shipping, and yes you will be charged border charge.
