yea, looks it

seems that you need the "cap" which the tube goes through, and the o-rings to seal it.
tubing is just regular (slightly stiff and easy to kink) 1/8" tubing

and driving on them with zero psi may have led to a hole worn through the 'boot' or 'bag' part... maybe.
they dont reccomend any driving on them with less than 30 psi

more pics for ya below.







great shocks, but if you cant put air in them... ehhhh.....
i would call sumone and see if they can hook ya up with just the "caps" and stuff.

im not driving it right now so that should be fine, the other shock has that cap on it, so the parts that im missing are the pieces in the bag, in the link ? either way i dont see how it works, unless you put air in one end of the black "T" and it goes threw the lines to the shock??, ill just go ask our local old school speed man if he has or can order what i need, they probibly were drivin without air for quite a while so i should get a price for the whole packege shocks and all

yea, the black "T" in the baggy is the shrader valve, and tees the two lines to each shock. i have that, a couple o-rings, and most of the stock line if you want them, just pay me like $5 or whatever for shipping.

and yea, if they are leaking air its prolly better to just buy new ones. i believe i got mine from summit?
wherever tim linked me to is what i got it from.

so if i can find that little baggy, you can have it. i didnt bother with the 'stock' pieces in there.

Buy new ones. They are like $40 brand new from any Autozone, O'Reilly's, etc... and will include everything you need to install them properly. Also you will know the shocks are good by buying new ones. You could buy all the line and shit now and still have to turn around and replace those shocks because they were run below their recommended PSI.

Mine recommend 25-200PSI. I run 50.
