    Remember to jack up the rear end (I used the trailer hitch receiver) when installing the shocks. The whole job shouldn't take more than an hour and a half.

    I've put 12,000 miles on mine and they work great...you will be pleased. My partner was so impressed with mine that he replaced his rear shocks and compressor with the same deal on his '07 Escalade...he's also happy after 3 months.

    I have been on the fence for which one to get for awhile so I will get the rebuilt shocks since I don't want to spend a lot of money on them

    Re: Arnott shocks and compressor ordered today

    I installed a new Arnott air compressor on my 2002 Escalade about two years ago.
    The factory unit was completely junk...the piston and cylinder were totally rusted.

    The new unit installation was a snap, with no issues at all. It still works like a champ!!!.
    I feel their products and service are outstanding.

    The exact reason I bought the whole assembly new as I didn't know the history of the compressor
    Though I may reuse the old one for something else
