Springs in the rear are as easy to put on as the shocks.

I installed the new air shocks Sunday morning. I hooked up individual lines and what a difference. The stance is so much better.

Bench test your old shocks to see if they were leaking. Test each one separately, in the event that one failed, and the other is still good. Keep it as a spare, should one of these also fail.

Standing tall again but still just a Band Aid for weak springs. Those springs are still under that rig after 47 years and you just gave them new crutches.
