    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.....

    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.
