Air ride broke down (Pics)

After getting off the highway and pulling into a parking lot, i heard a snap in the rear back, i tried pressin the buttons and i hear air leaking out and i got out to check, the strut was completely broken. the was was stayin up by the tire.

I just got the air ride kit a month ago. i ordered a replacement strut. Im waiting for Air Lift company to inspect it, pending Warranty replacement.

I flatbed towed it from mississauga to scarborough, $90. which aint bad at all.

It was hardddd putting it up on the flat bed cuz the back bumper was about a finger gap from the ground. We had to use lots of wooden pieces, and when we took the car off the tow truck we had to use car impound lot trollies they use on stolen recovered cars to move the back of the car.

Pics below

Zeppelin8778 is an unknown quantity at this point
not true... they fit right, but theres a wiring issue... the bulbs are different sizes and theres 3 bulbs for an 04 tail and 4 bulbs for an 01 tail... the 04-05 tails dont have the side triangle thing that lights up. theres a DIY or something for it, just search. u can get the wiring right pretty easily.
