Hey guys, I looked up where to find factory replacement air shocks for my '92 Brougham D'Elegance 3 years ago but have lost it. Would anyone who has been through this give some advice or share what would work just as well? I don't want the car sitting higher than its supposed to be and I like the level suspension adjustment that the air provides. Is there a cheaper way to go than factory? Where could I even get factory and not pay $400 each or something??? Mine are leaking oil.
On my 89 I went with Monroe to keep the level ride system intact. I think you will need the Monroe MA819. You will have to buy the AK16 adapter kit as well. Bought mine from Amazon for around 60 bucks a pair. Seem to do the job OK.

Double check that Monroe number. I show MA751.
HERE are the specs on the Monroes (http://info.rockauto.com/Monroe/DetailLclRmt.html?ma751.jpg&http://info.rockauto.com/Monroe/MA751.html)
You can also use AC Delco 504-511.
Here is info on the Delcos (http://info.rockauto.com/ACDelco/Detail.html?AirLift.jpg)
Both brands are available locally, and at rockauto.com
I thought it was the MA751 as well until I checked rock auto. For 92 they show the MA819.

Hmm, wonder what's different? Did you compare the specs (use the link I posted)?
Yeah the specs do differ a little on compressed and extended travel lengths. Heres the link to the MA819. http://info.rockauto.com/Monroe/DetailLclRmt.html?ma819.jpg&http://info.rockauto.com/Monroe/MA819.html
