    Exclamation 2002 EXT Rear Susp. Disaster Where to go from here

    2002 ext air shocks are shot. first vehicle ive owned with air ride system.
    is there a setup or a kit i can use to just switch to regular shock system? or maybe a different setup thats more ideal for where i live. the roads are little rough here in Dillingham Alaska. any help would be much appreciated
