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 and i wouldnt change a thing. Its a lifetime warranty and saves you bunches of money.

I have had the "check ride control" light checked out at auto shop and confirmed both rear air bags are leaking and need replacement. Special tools required?
Sagging suspension can be a result of air suspension struts and/or drier leaking air. These type of air leaks can lead to failure of the air suspension compressor.
Prior to jacking or lifting a vehicle with air suspension, you must turn off the suspension switch. The switch is generally located in the trunk or on the right side of the passenger foot well.
