Im lookin at a 86 xt that has "bad suspension" The car is kinda far so i cant go look at it but what are my options? Can I just replace the suspension with regular struts and springs or do I have to fix the air suspension? I know the air suspension is proabibly alot to fix so Im just wonderig if the car is worth buying. I should be able to switch it out with a regular gl or gl turbo right?

You might want to find out exactly what's wrong with the air suspension. You may be able to fix it quite easily or you may not. There is a lot of great info here and on the xt6.org site about the air ride. I actually love the air ride and a lot of others prefer to swap it out. Either way whatever you choose there's tons of info on here and the xt6 site about both. Let me know if I can help.
