They can actually be rather cheap. JcWhitney sells a pair of Gabriel Air Shocks (top of the line stuff) for $70 for a pair. Then you lift the car up but raise it from the frame so the shocks that are already installed can relax. Unbolt the shocks, take them out, and the air shocks just replace the ones you have just taken off. Bolt them on and you're ready to go. If you have common sense you can do it.

I was thinking of buying a 77 LTD and putting overloads on it. Does it have leafs or springs?
