The compressor died for whatever reason.  I did not hear it working more than it should as it would if the system had a leak.  I'm sure it is the compressor.  Fuses are good and I have power to the compressor.  Here's my question:

The Tek has 82,000 on it now and I am wondering which is more econimical at this point: to replace the compressor, and possibly anything else, probably shocks as it isn't riding so well at the moment.  Or just replace the shocks with after market ones. 

It seems I read a while ago that someone here replace the air shocks with regular shocks  Money is a concern right now, I do not want to spend a fortune to resolve this.  Any thoughts?

I'd say that if you don't do any towing or heavy hauling in your Tek  there's no real reason to maintain the load leveling suspension.  Regular shocks should be just fine.
