Of course there is a difference in the shocks. Just look at shocks for a wagon, they are $200+ a piece. On cars with self leveling systems, there is a hyd. line that goes to the top of each rear shock. What do you think the hydraulic fluid is for? The accumulators (nitrogen cells) are what pressurize the hydraulic fluid that goes to each shock to raise and lower it.
