Air shocks

Being I cant search I have to ask a question.
Can you use air shocks like fox or saw with leaf springs?
Or does it not work like coilovers and leafs.
Thanks

what are you trying to accomplish? Air shocks replace any sort of spring, so if you're running leafs, you won't see any benefit from running air shocks. You could use a coilover shock, wihtout the coils, if you wanted a high-quality, rebuildable, re-valvable shock.

I had an opportunity to get air shocks at a good deal. but wanted to ask before I made a big mistake. I didnt know if you aired them down if they would act more like a regular shock.

I think a cheap shock would do a better job in that application than a sweet air shock aired down in the wrong rig.

If the deal is really sweet buy it and resell it to me at a tiny profit.
