check with your local auto parts store. They should be able to get you a shock called a load leveler. It will be a shock that has a coil on it. I have installed several of these on astro and safari vans to help with trailer towing. I know Monroe makes these and are the better shock manufacturer in my opinion.

Unfortunately, it's only worth what someone's willing to pay. $1000 doesn't sound like a scammy offer on a 10 year vehicle that at least has one problem known with it, and possibly a relatively major engine problem. Private party Bluebook value on a fair condition 1999 base Windstar with 100k miles is only $1350 (3/2009).
