Default air ride issue

once again 01 bonneville

where can i get oem air lines and shocks...

the rear shocks were replaced with what autozone said were stock air shocks from gabriel. but in the package it says their for an 85 truck.... these shocks werent meant for lower pressures such as the ones for luxury air ride cars min psi is like 30psi

i was told the pump dont build up enough pressure for them. and thats why someone ran separate air lines to a valve like on trucks where you air them up with a compressor
