It really depends what's wrong with it. First it needs to be diagnosed and make recommendations based on the results. I's could be a leaking air line, compressor, distributor valve, leaking air shocks, etc.....

depends ??? if u need the actual struts around 800 each.....you probally just need the front 2.......if it is the valve box which is more of a slow leak than your looking at 450
Yes dude, it depends, since there could be more than just one failure.
You might be a part changer and don't mind to waste your customers money, but a professional would check the system first and replace the ONLY necessary part(s) - that's the basic difference between them and you.
Beside that, you should get your facts together before you give out a totally wrong info:
Front Shock Absorber:
Without Adaptive Damping 2203202438 $1300.00
With Adaptive Damping
Right 2203200438 $1660.00
Left 2203200338 $1660.00

your quotes are new parts, Front Shock Absorber:
Without Adaptive Damping 2203202438 $1300.00
With Adaptive Damping
Right 2203200438 $1660.00
Left 2203200338 $1660.00

We can find remanufactured part at much cheaper price:
Front Shock Absorber:
Without Adaptive Damping 2203202438 $1300.00 new, vs. $370.59 remanuf.
With Adaptive Damping (ABC)
Right 2203200438 $1660.00 new, vs. $628.95 remanuf.
Left 2203200338 $1660.00 new, vs. $628.95 remanf.

Also, the $1660 is dealer price, can get it for $1200 from auto parts online store.
