Default Failed air suspension

Ride level control of my 92SSEI is dead. Not sure of the problem, always leaked. Never worked well . Can the rear shocks be converted to "old style" air shock type control by connecting exisitng lines to exisitng air valve in truck? I would adjust by adding air from outside source. What do you think?

Yes that can be done...

My question tho, Are the rear air struts original to the car? If they are I'm sure they are more than shot... But again yes it can be converted..
