Without using a conversion kit? (98 Expedition 5.4, 4WD) I have air shocks and the front one need replacing. Spending that king of money is draining, so I am looking for an alternative. I have heard that it is and isn't possible to do this. So before I anything I would like to hear your opinion.

Do you
have the same problem?

Every penny has its worth. Regular shocks are not designed for air compression functions so I wonder where you get the idea it can work.

LOL. Thank you. I was going to replace them with the air shocks anyway.
