Will Monroe load assist shock conversion kit 90009C work on my 2000 ETC ?
=====================
the MONROE 900009 is a COIL-OVER shock -

coil-over shocks are a really BAD - TERRIBLE - HORRIBLE - WORST choice -
they are a SUPER stiff coil spring wrapped around the shock -
they WILL make your Eldo ride like an empty 1-ton pick-up truck -

stick with the MONROE 40046 air-assist shocks -

Well I got a set of them sitting here so I need to send them back.
Also my compressor does not work so I ran manual air lines

Sending back the 90009C back today. So if I Need to Get 2 Monroe 40046 & Monroe AK29 Shock Absorber Air Hose Kit (Adaptor Kit) ? my car is setting pretty low could the rear springs be shot as well or will the shocks and adaptor kit get me fixed up? I wasn't really wanting to spend $450 :confused:

CORRECT - 2 shocks and 1 AK29 kit -

my car is setting pretty low could the rear springs be shot as well
with an empty trunk and back seat -
the springs alone should maintain proper ride height -
if not - you might consider a new set of springs -

I usually recommend the MOOG coil springs -
HOWEVER - in this case I recommend the ACDELCO 45H2125 -
$80 for the pair - with free shipping -
