it sounds like a previous owner has swapped the standard shock for an air one never seen a 1500 with twin air shocks.

My 89 had Progressive 416's. They are dual air shocks, one each side. It replaces the stock suspension. I used to run mine at 30 psi - 2 up and 45 psi - 2up with a trailer. I also had progressive springs in the forks and a superbrace. It was a hudge difference in handling and suspension, but the stock suspension was worn out.

Note that Progressive states that 100psi will shorten the shock life. I use around 20psi on the rear shocks (Progressive 416) when solo and 55psi when two up. I carry 0psi in the forks which have progressive springs, both solo and two up.
