air shocks

in another 3000 miles i'll have to replace my rear shocks. i was asking my dad about his car and i noticed how before he'd raised the back end up just with an air tank. he told me he had installed air shocks on it. so i'm wondering what they are exactly, how hard they are to install, and cost. thanks.

on a 92 regal, you have struts. as far as i know, there aren't any air struts available for your car (unless there is an air ride option for w-bodies--and that would have to be kind of a custom deal to install) plus, w/ your car having irs, you'd get som pretty funky suspension geometry going on if you raised it (a la 60-63 corvair) so i'd advise against it, personally...

not sure. it's got a big transverse monoleaf spring in the back, so that kinda limits you. maybe check out some w-body websites. it could be that you're not the first one to want to rake a regal, cutlass, grand prix or lumina...
