That is what the guy said. I don't know. This is the same guy that wrote down 120000 miles as 102000 and that it is a dodge dakota lol.

But... He did say however he hasn't seen a set up like it on a ram. They aren't listed as a factory option in their book. So therefore, he had to custom measure the shocks to find out what in the hell they are.

Air shocks are a aftermarket piece . You order them by application . They do have air lines going to them , don't they ?

Yes, he said the air lines had a hole (which he replaced) but, there was oil everywhere. I do have the valve on my bumper to fill it. I've noticed it, and thought it was factory. Now they are holding air pressure and feel amazing. Wednesday I'm replacing the whole assembly. I'm stoked for it.

If they hold air then they're fine. Air shocks really can't go bad unless the leak air...lol

And...if it makes you feel any better...I finally got my GLH Omni running good enough I can drive it around, and...I dumped the clutch and when I let off the gas I heard a knocking sound. I thought I trashed a CV or blew out a bearing in the trans. I got under it checking everything...come to find out...all my lugnuts were finger tight...lol

So...you're not the only one. We both seem to have the issue of thinking everything is worse than it really is...haha.
