: 1998 Deville: go with Arnott, Suncore, Monroe air ride shock?

My left rear shock leaks a little. Compressor cycles fine and both shocks pump up (trunk test), but as soon as the cycle stops a small hissing sound from left strut 4 minutes compressor kicks on. Soooo

I'm going to replace with either Arnott, Suncore, or Monroe. I can get Monroe from Advance Auto slightly less $$ than Arnott. Suncore is about $40 less than Arnott. With money not an option, What system would you go with?

I lean to Monroe, only because of the big long lasting name. Input? , But like the total setup of Arnott.

what is the trunk test you are referring to??????????

With trunk door open, setting on the edge and alowing the compressor to kick in to level the rear end. It does that and a small hissing sound from the drivers side wheel well. Ordered Arnott's today. I'll get back when I have time to install in a few weeks....

Mistake on the Monroe's from Advance Auto, they are OEM and $430 each..... couldn't see spending $860..

Update. The Arnott air will work fine. My '98 Deville doesn't have the eletronic solanoid on each shock.
