Replacement of air shock for Tag axle on a 98 Itasca

Anyone have information on what replacement cost are for rear tag axle air shocks? Is it a handyman job or only professional?

Be sure to get the right ones.

When you buy shocks from what I know is they have a strong strap holding the shocks closed and if you cut the strap it will expand and you will play hell getting it compressed again.
Take it to a shop and let them put them on.
You might want to ask them to order them otherwise you may buy the wrong ones.

Cost me about $600 to have the two tag air bags replaced. I had the mechanic do it.
