I hadn't thought about it but my brother had some on his El Camino and it could help. Not sure about the ride though.

Don't think anyone has done air shocks, but some have put a spring spacer to lift the rear a little bit.

I had this same thing on mine. When I bought the car the rear was too low for it to pass the "3 finger rule" for inspection in MA. The struts weren't completely gone, maybe just old.. idk. I didn't really even notice until I has seen many 6thgens after I bought mine that a lot on the road were low in the back. Dealer replaced back struts and it doesn't sit low like that any more.
Maybe just time for some new struts?

They don't make adjustable shocks for the 6th gen. At least I don't think so. Your best bet is to get air bag inserts that sit inside your current coil spring. Then run air lines from both bags to one single schrader valve. Then you can air up the bags with any gas station air hose.

I was being serious. I have no system, no spare tire and no jack. I guess that makes the difference.

Replace the springs too if you're going to replace the struts. Otherwise it will still be saggy. I had the same problem with mine when I first bought the car. Whoever had it before me put a U-haul towing hitch on it. So whatever he was towing wore the springs out and made it saggy. So I bought new coil springs and it raised it back up to where it belonged.
