You could also check out the rear shock absorber conversion kit on rockauto.com. look under suspension. Its cheaper than 300 bucks.

What i meant to say was i would replace the air shocks with a good Gas shock as the cost to get that system working all proper again would be not cost worthy IMO but that is me...John those shocks look nice maybe have to get some for the Lesabre

I was looking at using regular shocks but can't find what would work.

You wont find, and they wouldn't work well if you found something to cobble in. The coil springs on the Bonne are not made to hold her fat azz up and stable.They just "assist" the air shocks. And why they make the coversion shocks with springs attached. Without them the rear will sag severely and the car not "ride" safely.

You know...something that would be a good low cost way to go is to put air shocks back in it with one of Monroes manual fill kits. The kit is usually $20 or less.

I tried searching and didn't see one specifically for the Bonne, but they are just airlines and T'*. Nothing that can't be universal there.

Monroe airline kits have part numbers like ak29 etc
