My 89 has it but I think the driver side rear shock is bad--the car seems to lean a little on that side, although it does go up and down. How would you know when the shocks are bad(air ride ones)and could I replace w/regular air shocks hooked to the factory air ride system? I've seen this on a j/y SSEI and it seemed to work nicely.

I think the air ride shocks use the same bounce test as the normal struts. Someone correct me if I'm wrong...

When I was looking at new air struts, I saw that Monroe made some that were compatible with the existing air pump system. I went with AC Delco struts anyway, but there are others out there that make them.

You might have a problem with your spring.

that would suck! I always thought the car leaned because of my driveway sloping--but it does that on level ground too. Would stock LE or SE springs work? do they have aftermarket lowering springs maybe? That would be cool!
