My 2003 oldsmobile bravada back end sits very low. Its either my strut or shocks.My question is, for this model, are the rear shocks coil or air springs?

The shocks do not set ride Hightower. The leaf springs set ride hieght in the rear. So ether the leaf springs are worn out or the shackles that hold the springs to the frame are broken (should be very obvious if they are). Most likely the rear leaf springs are the problem.

At first I thought my cv joint was going bad on my 2000 Silverado (classic popping sound) then I turned down my stereo and realized it was coming from the rear drivers side. When I pump the breaks it will...

First thing to verify (since its hard to isolate these sounds without using this little trick), turn off
stereo and while driving forward or turning stick an ear (or two) out the driver's window and
make sure the sound is coming from the rear diver's side.

Assuming that the sound is coming from the rear driver's side, you'll suspect the rear
suspension components: rear ball joints, shock mounts (upper & lower), trailing arm. The only
way to check
your rear suspension components is to jack up vehicle, remove L rear tire, and look for
anything loose, or missing a bolt or a nut (this happens more often than you'd ever
guess - they vibrate loose).
Also: axle shaft bearing - worn/damaged/dry. Replace or lubricate (if dry).

Rear end body sways back and forth on my 2002 jeep grand cherokee

check the track bar bushings for play in them, also check to make sure that the sway bar links are not broken, also if the rear axle has leaf springs for suspension it then could be the rear shackle bushings.

Front leaf springs shackles keep folding up and droping the front end

You will need to replace the front leaf springs or have them set and tensioned. This entails a specialist heating and bending the springs to their original shape. While you have the leaf springs out replace the shackle bushes. Depending on your budget now would be the time to buy those Old Man Emu suspension parts you've been eyeing.

I am about to purchase a 84 ford f 150 with 133k original miles...any specific problems with this year...?

You didn't state if it was a v-8 or a 6cyl engine.
Thats not alot of miles if it is a six cylinder engine.
But you might want to check the rear spring shackles and shackle mounts,They rust off leaving the leaf spring with no support to carry anything.

This is common. You can tap it back into place with a 5 pound sledge hammer.
Sometimes the bottom leaf or overload leaf turns a little. But, rest assured it is a normal thing.Your good to go.

Torque on spring shackles

My son works for Ford and had a sign-on to get into their online service manual and was able to look it up for me. I knew he could do this when I posted, but he wasn't home at the time and I had my truck on a lift. If interested, the torque specs on the spring shackles are 98lb, both at the frame and spring and 66lb for the shock.
