I was disappointed to see that I could have purchased the shocks and air bags on Amazon.com for much less.

The listed parts prices seem to be typical for how most shops price parts. Whatever their part cost is they usually double it. However as far as the front air bags go I'd almost be willing to pay someone that much to install them! I found that trying to stuff the airbags up inside the springs to be one of the more aggravating and frustrating jobs I've done on the motorhome.
