I understand money is a problem for many people but, airbags even on the suspension you really don't want to trust "used". If a bag or bellows was to blow at highway speeds or curvy back roads who knows where you might end up due to the sudden loss of control. My vote is struts if you have to.


Airbags leak - they do not and cannot "blow". My choice is always go OEM but, as stated, if money is an issue - go cheap.


Replace them with struts. The airbags are troublesome. HTH. -Jim
