Rear suspension
Alright guys I need some help here. I have a 2008 CV Lx and the rear suspension is shot. Shocks and springs I'm looking for a spring/shock set up that is good for pulling my little 5'x8' trailer to and from the home improvement store. I don't have a truck so this is what I have to work with. It already has springs and shocks (no air). Just looking for some pointers I'm not looking to spend a ton. It is my daily driver with just over 111,xxx miles. Everything I have found says it wont work on my Lx.
Thanks in advance!

RE: Rear suspension
If you already have coil springs, you can use "helper" air bags inside the springs. They generally have an air inlet(schrader valve) on the back of the car that you can pump up a little when you are towing or otherwise heavily loaded.
If it says it won't work on your LX, put in that it's a P71 so it knows it's coil springs.

Sounds good I didn’t figure there was a difference thank you!
