Ok, alternator fixed. Front struts checked and they are bad. Does anyone know of a place I can send in the shocks from my car to have rebuilt? If not, than other than ebay, where is a good place to find some re manufactured or used ones at a good price?

Thanks, I've been looking at that. I have found some that say they are for:
Front Hydropneumatic Air Shock for Non 4 Matic Vehicles without Active Body Control. How can I determine if these are correct for my car?

Contact them and discuss. They do a whole range of products for suspension but you must contact them and discuss your needs.

I see they also have a conversion kit. If I converted the from airmatic to regular shocks would my resale value increase or decrease? Whats your opinion or what have you heard?

Airmatic on these models is a nightmare for owners and if anyone wanted to purchase a car that had been converted would at least know the can forget airmatic problems so it is actually a plus.

However I do not know how it would affect the ride as not too many people have given feedback on this. But they do do the rebuilt air struts as well which are much cheaper than originals, you may have to send your old struts for this.
