I want to replace the shocks & struts, got a good peak at the front today while changing the oil, am I correct to assume only the rear has the air ride? I didn't see any air lines piped into the front struts.

who carry's the air struts?

and what should I expect to pay for a decent brand?

thanks~

Air shocks in the rear. I'd suggest the Monroe Max-airs. Monroe Sensatraks for the front struts. You should be able to find them for a good price at http://www.rockauto.com/.

I paid about 200 bucks for new shocks and struts all around. I went with monroe sensatracs struts and monroe max-air shocks in the back. They work great and are pretty easy to install.

I did find them cheaper on RockAuto then locally. I printed off the price + shipping and brought that into Advanced auto and they matched it. :)

when i was in fargo I bought mine at advance auto parts for the air and autozone for the struts. Should have bought all four at advance since they actually had everything in stock. Payed just under $400 for all 4. Up here in canada I would have paid over $600 for all 4.
