    There are some companies that still service parts for your suspension, but they are not OEM (original equipment manufacturer). I do believe that conversion kits are available to make it a conventional shock/ spring arrangement. You will have to search the internet for the costs, because either repair route you choose, it is not cheap. Good luck.

    Strutmasters sell conversion kits very reasonable and easy to convert.

    I would make sure you know its the air bags. it could be a air line leak. then mostly likely putting the pressure on your compressor and you probably going to have to have a new one. Its a big mess to handle. I converted my 84 Lincoln Continental to a conversion kit with Strutmasters.com and i wouldnt change a thing. Its a lifetime warranty and saves you bunches of money.
