1978 Chevrolet Camaro Repair Question
Chevrolet Camaro Shocks Problem
Possibly a kinked hose, but you have a different problem. Shock absorbers do not raise the car up or set the ride height. Air shocks have an extra air spring that IS adjustable, but no shock absorber can make a car sit lower. You need to replace the leaf springs or have them re-arced at a specialty alignment shop. Weak springs is probably why the previous owner installed the air shocks. They get the ride height back which solves the handling problem from insufficient "caster", one of the main alignment angles, but the "spring rate" is different between the air springs and leaf springs. That mainly affects ride quality and comfort which is already in short supply.
