Help with 04 x5 air suspension

my 04 x5, 4.4, sports package is settling overnight. Dealer says both FRONT AIR BAGS leaking, quotes 3500. Local indy says no air bags in front, bags on back only, entire shock/strut needs to be replaced on both sides.

Found rear air bags online, no word on front air bags.

so dealer clarifies that the front has air shocks, not separate air bags. Indy was correct.
