Pump up air shocks

Gday all i have got a pair of pump up air shocks on the back of my XA, the valve is in the boot. I can pump them up and have the XA looking like a four wheel drive but at the moment they have no air in them because they have a leak therfore the back tyre is about an inch under each guard. What i want to no is if i get new gas shocks will this affect the ride height of the XA. I should depending on money be getting the car lowered in the next month or so. I will be using lowering blocks untill i can afford to get the leafs reset. Up the front will be a pair of King Super Lows that i got quoted $125 a pair from Auto Barn.

Thanks Chris

Re: Pump up air shocks

If it is sinking lower than you like, with standard gas shocks I would expect the height to be back to normal for the short term till you lower it, try buy some from the wreckers cheapest way out.

I did put something here, but it vanshied, I think

"So long and thanks for all the fish!"

Re: Pump up air shocks

changing from stuffed to gas new shocks should not make any real diferance after awhile they will all be stuffed from bottoming out you need to fix the sagged rear leafs first even if you only lift it 25ml with the exta leaf that should be put in when reseting then worry about the shocks in the rear and then look at the front cheers

Re: Pump up air shocks

How much will King Super Lows drop the front? I want to get mine to look the same as the silver XW GT DOGNUT. Low in the front but on its arse at the back.
