if your compressor still works or not you just get oem shocks for your car. then if your compressor fails you can replace it with the ak29 kit. it adapts to the stock type struts. you dont ever need to buy different(conversion) struts.

if you like squishy
MONROE Part # 71798 {#931798} Sensa-Trac Strut

if you like controlled ride like bonnie ssei oem ones
front;
KYB Part # 236007 GR-2 / Excel-G

KYB Part # SR1003 SR Series; Air Leveling Unit
Rear; Except Electronic Adjustable Suspension; Air Strut, A Coil Spring Compressor is not needed

Ok I'll probably just oil the compressor since it still works, and go with Monroe 71798 in the rear. Then probably when I do the front i'll get the whole new strut assembly and go with Monroe 171822.

not a big fan of the assembly because the springs that are on it are the proper ones for the car with equal wear, most of the time those package ones make it sit catty wompus at best at worst make it ride bad because who knows were the spring came from. there were a ton of different springs for h bodies there may have been 2 or three rates just for oldsmobiles, let alone bonnies and such. most of those places offer one part for all h bodies.
