In Reply to: Rear shock replacement eliminating LAD system-DIY? posted by Adrian Lee on August 09, 2001 at 16:39:46:

Granted, new LAD shocks are less than $300 ea., but I decided to convert my entire system. Got everything thru Bavarian for just under $600. In reading other forums and info, decided to do this instead of fix one shock, wait another year and then possibly have to deal with the other. Went with Bilstein HD. Ride and handling are great, no rear end sag others have reported of. Even with full tank of gas, I cant hardly push the rear end down.

Is it possible to change the rear shock absorber to regular not LAD system?
Mine is showing a little symptom of leaking fluid and need to change the shocks. How hard is it to eliminate since the LAD shocks are astronomically priced.
Thanks for your help.
