Before ordering this kit be aware it only allows you a way to fill you air shocks/struts via a compressor. It has a line that goes to each strut and connects with a tee. At the tee is a valve stem to hook a compressor with a tire fitting and air up your struts. This does not replace the line from the compressor to the struts for electronic leveling.

The previous reviewer mentioned the listing said this kit was required to install air shocks, but thats only true if a.) You did not previously have air shocks/struts installed, or b.) You are eliminated you electronic leveling but still have air shocks/struts.

The bottom line is its a quality product at a very affordable price and i would recommend it.

    Comments about Monroe Shock Absorber Air Hose Kit:

    Bought these to complete Monroe air shock installation on the rear of my just acquired 2001 Park Avenue Ultra with factory rear air ride. When I bought the car it's shocks were super dead, to the point of being an embarrassment and annoyance. It already had new front struts so I got some Monroe air shocks to go along with them. What an improvement! Car changed from a pogo stick to as firm and smooth a ride you could get from a big boat of a car.
    Easy install, I quickly hooked them up by splicing into the existing air feeds.
    Work as designed.

              Comments about Monroe Shock Absorber Air Hose Kit:

              Installed these on my 2000 Pontiac Bonneville SE. It has been 3 weeks and these work well, no air leaks. I also purchased and installed the Air Hose Kit AK29, if you have old hoses I would recommend it. My level ride compressor is toast, but with the hose kit you can adjust the ride easily with regular air pump/compressor. The installation instructions suggested 80 psi, but that raised the back end too high so I let some out until it looked right.

                    Hi. My 2004 Buick LeSabre needs a new "Shock Absorber Kit - Air - Rear" to pass inspection according to my mechanic. I'm not sure whether I need just the part MA822 kit or this piece (I read this part was related to hauling and towing). Any advice I'd appreciative much. Thank you.

                      A:

                      Happy to help, Isaac! The Monroe Max-Air Rear Air Shock Absorber - Part No. MA822 is an exact fit for your 2004 Buick LeSabre. That is designed to be OE replacement units and could be connected directly up to the original airlines if desired. If you not using the original air system it would be necessary to use the Monroe Shock Absorber Air Hose Kit - Part No. AK29 and an external compressor accordingly to air up the units. Please keep in mind that this air line kit is designed to be used with an external air compressor system and is not capable of being connected to the vehicle's original compressor.

                      A:

                      Glad to assist, Dawnta! The Monroe Max-Air Air Shock Absorber - Part No. MA822 that we catalog for your 2001 Buick Lesabre Limited were designed to be OE replacement units and could be connected directly up to the original airlines if desired. If not using the original air system it would be necessary to use the Monroe Shock Absorber Air Hose Kit - Part No. AK29 and an external compressor accordingly to air up the units. The KYB unit - Part No. SR1002 was designed to also be an OE replacement unit that could have connected up to the original air system, I would have to believe that the airline kit # AK29 would also fit and function properly with your current KYB shock. Please keep in mind that this air line kit is designed to be used with an external air compressor system and is not capable of being connected to the vehicle's original compressor.

                      A:

                      No, it will not be a problem if the size of the Shock Absorber Air Hose is slightly different. However check your air line routing to avoid moving parts. Try to keep them as close to the fender wall as possible. If they stick out, any debris picked up by the tires will be more likely to catch them.
