okay, so maybe the crowd selling for $3.5k was selling for bigger mark-up. Should be around $2k AUD for air back, which is not cheap.
I expect the Bilstein approved reseller (who will install it) will want to add his labour and margin for any issues that may eventuate to the total price.
Don't expect much change from $10k.
Still very expensive exercise.
If we are experiencing issues with suspension and needed to replace the entire set, it may be easier to off-load the vehicle.
Having said that, I expect that you would be replacing the air bags due to a fault (that could be detected by scanning the car for such fault).
BTW: Is there any reason to replace air bags (other than if there is an issue), and would you need to replace all four, like tyres, or just the faulty one?
