Looking for more information about the suspension on my car, (84 touring wagon with pneumatic height adjust). Since it has springs as well is the air suspension does it use the same struts/ shocks as non air suspension? Likewise with the springs? Asking because my wagon now seems to bottom out really easily with passenger/s or any load. If i wanted to improve it (even just back to stock) is it possible to keep the pneumatic height adjust or just replace with non penumatic all round?

All info appreciated.


Cheers, Tom

Just replace it with something else than air suspension. The air suspension is pain in the rump roast after it is done. There ain't no displacement parts around and from my opinion normal shock/spring setup is much better handling than the air ones.
