Default CCR strut problems anyone?

How well-known are the reliability issues with them?

This should give you an idea.....at Monroe'* website, they have these instructions for disabling the system and replacing with non-CCR struts:

My friends old 1995 SLE with 235,000 miles still has a functioning CCR.
My SSEi'* started to act up just before I sold it. It road smooth as glass, but the lights would both come on about every 4-5 times the car was started.

What kind of difference would it make to change from air to non-air struts in back (aside from the obvious price difference)?

BTW, just rolled over 100K with my CCR'* still going fine. I did have one time when they went psycho and I had like 3.5-4" of gap over my rear tires, but that was it. No lights, no nothing

CCR has nothing to do with air. I'm not sure what you're asking. The air is only for the ELC function.

If you check that link I posted, it shows how to switch from CCR to standard gas struts.
