Quadra Lift shocks replacement/repair

Has anyone ever had experience having had to replace (via the dealer) quadra lift air shocks due to either normal and tear over time or failure? Was the dealer able to complete the replacement successfully? Any issues? With a normal based spring suspension you figure it is a relatively straightforward maintenance issue/repair but with the QL is it different?

Just trying to anticipate when the time eventually comes when I'll need to have them replaced.

Grateful for any insights into your experience with this you can share.

My PO had the rear shocks replaced under warranty at about 20,000 miles.I thought that was strange and maybe a little early,but with this QL system it doesnt shock me.(no pun intended)

As far as replacing the air springs, its about the same effort as steel springs, if not easier as you can deflate them. There are a few air hoses to hook up that, if not done right, can leak. And then there is the nitrogen refill. The front shocks are integral with the air spring, the rear shocks are more conventional and can be replaced separately. The big difference is parts cost, where steel springs are less than $100, air springs are more than $1000 each.

These air springs are made by continental which has a good reputation for building durable springs.
