Are you sure you want to do that? I've had air shock after air shock fail. The ride is terrible. Fenders come down on tires when shocks fail at the worst times. Often cheaper to add a leaf than to purchase air shocks and you still get to run a shock for dampening.

Thanks Topless. I agree and have taken a different route.

So what route are you taking? Premium gas shocks? OER replacements?

I installed KYB gas shocks and am   satisfied with the results.

Glad to hear it. I have Gabriel premium gas shocks up front and Loadmaster shocks (shocks with coil springs) in back because I sometimes have up to 5 people in the back seat during parades. The ride is still good and it eliminated a set of air shocks that failed on me. I think you made an excellent choice.
