Most definitely. If you connect them to a common air supply, it will cause excessive body roll in corners. The outside shock will be compressed, and it will push air into the inside shock, which is already rising due to cornering forces. It makes it act a little squirrelly, if you know what I mean. And if one side springs a leak, they both go down.

I had to get the Sears guy to dig around in his junk box to find me an extra inlet valve, but you might be able to get the same parts at a hydraulic supply place.

Auto Zone used to have the separate fill valves available in their paper catalogs. If you can find somebody that isn't totally clueless that works there.

You can also use two dual outlet fittings, and use a plug in one fitting on each.

Not really an issue on a 6cyl Nova, but with independant air shocks you can tune the car at thetrack or with fat drivers.
