:???: Anyone have luck with decent Air Shocks? Removed my OEM pair because they always leaked, and installed Monroe HD spring shocks,.. Doesn't quite cut it, need to go back to Air Shocks. Any suggestions? - George
Bobby, What did they run you about, remember? And are your sway bars stock, part of that Sport Suspension package F-41? Think I've got the same. - GeorgeI took out my air shocks awhile back. Replaced them with Bilsteins and air lift air bags inside the moog cargo coils. Ran the new air lines and mounted the fitting as original under the gas door. It's a world of difference! Also have a rear sway bar but the bags/bilsteins really cut down the body roll/sway.
Great, Thanks Steve, appreciate the pic. They look like the perfect formula for my Camino. Are they also attached to inflatable air lines? Same brand as Bobby78 suggested, Bilstein? - GeorgeI didn't like the ride of the airshocks & I went with KYB's gas-a-just shocks with G-body wagon springs with airlift coil springs assist air bags ! Great ride !!
The rear sway bar is a G body sway bar I bought on ebay. Airlift bags were around $100 and then whatever shocks you choose. Bilstein shocks are a bit stiff, but I like them. I would have all 4 shocks the same brand and type. So depending on what you have up front, go with those for the rear. Unless you want/need to change fronts too.
I got the g-body wagon springs because I do a lot hauling with it !! Regular springs are fine for some !!Great, Thanks Steve, appreciate the pic. They look like the perfect formula for my Camino. Are they also attached to inflatable air lines? Same brand as Bobby78 suggested, Bilstein? - George
Now that I think about it, the wagons probably do hold more weight. Figure an elky with a bench seat holds 3 adults. So what's that? about 750lbs up front. Then another 800 in the bed. The wagon could hold 6 adults so say 1500lbs + cargo. Funny we think of these as light duty trucks but maybe they are just 2 seat sports cars in disguise.
there's also a spacer that goes up inside the arm. I'll see if I can get a pic of that too.
My OEM air shocks actually still work. I don't know if the the previous (also original) owner ever replaced them but I set the pressure at 25 psi the day I bought it home and I was still holding each of the times I checked it.
