On Ebay Motors, there is a vendor who sells the complete kit that comes with the air shock package. the kit gives you the extra valve tee that you need, and you cap off the branch of the tee that you don't need. You also get miles of extra tubing that you get to pitch into the trash. As I recall, you have some problem with Ebay, but my purchase was easy and cheap- under $10.00 if my memory is right. Macbuddy got his extra valve and hose kit at a parts store like AutoZone- they had the kit in stock. In your local stores, if they carry either brand of shocks- Monroe or Gabriel, the same size tubing, valve, and connector caps are used.

On Ebay motors, don't list your year or car model in the left side box. Just search for Air Shock Absorbers in the general car parts auction. The vendor(s) selling just the air fill kits are listed at the bottom of the page.

Dee,
Dave has a good memory! Yes, I picked up an Air Shock valve kit at Autozone for $15 as I recall. I made a "call list" of all the shops in town. Just so happened that the first call was to Autozone, and they had one set on hand.
