Rukee, geeteeohguy, thank you both!
To be totally honest, the only thing that exceeds my embarassment over not knowing anything about the air / drag bags is my gratitude for the expertise in these forums!
Since I am not doing any of my own mechanic / other work, I think I'll go the 'long-term' solution route and start interviewing and talking with the few local journeymen I know and already have experience with, about installing new stock spec springs, shocks, etc.
I guess I should have been more specific in my original post and, to that end, my priorities are:
a) doing everything possible to maintain (not lose) any originality I can in the car (bought from original owner last year w/ only 27,000 miles on her!); and b) avoiding any pitfalls or "failure paths" that any of you experienced owners / mechanics are aware of when it comes to replacing these parts wioth stock spec replacements . . .
Ames and Perfrmance Years know my voice and Visa # by heart
so, am I worrying too much or, is it as simple a matter as just ordering the suspension parts to the mechanic of my choice and having the replacements installed or, are there any steps others have taken that you would avoid "next time" or vice versa?
Thanks for your patience, I am a proud owner who wants to maintain this "Glory To Own" but, I also know my own limits and, as a result; I am "measuring thrice, cutting once" on every decision I make with my baby.
