I just got a 87 XT GL-10 Turbo, First and formost I need to work on the suspension....it is "Air" The left side has some lift to it and the right front, does too. RR has none, I have gone through the threads and I am going to check this out and try and fix it with some help, from my electrical savy buddy.
But, if this does not work, can I use a 88 wagon non adjustable coil overs, on this 87? Front and rear?
Any spare parts out there for sale?
Any other help or suggestions would be appreciated.

The air suspension system is a common prob, i think its usualy the air bags that go. You can swap them for coil overs from another ea82 just fine, its probably not worth trying to fix the air suspension.

I wouldn't use the struts from a wagon because it will raise your ride height. You should find some from another XT.
