They have them. As long as it's not a emission controlled part they can get it.

They they usually have 2-3 M-100's in the showroom at any one time.

There are 2 on ebay now. I believe they are the rear ones. The front requires 2 pieces on each side as I recall.

A few well trimmed bits of 2x3 work wonderfully for short term trips.

If your goal is to move it via flatbed someplace, make sure it's the axle that's chained down to the trailer and not the body parts. These air suspension systems work on their own even when the motor's dead and can do some pretty strange things when they decide it's time to change the ride height.
