Update....been a year and a half since I wised up and stopped throwing money away on compressors and shocks and converted my ESV to gas shocks and could not bre happier.

Best $250 I ever spent.

Not one issue and ride is just fine. Also I can hook uo to any trailer, boat or camper with confidence and little or no sag in the rear.

I no longer have to worry about it sagging or putting any wait inside or on bumper since eliminating the compressor and air shocks all together.

Then u must have upgraded the springs since thats what sags with the weight, the compressor and shocks only assist the springs

All i did was order the conversion kit from STRUTMASTER ( see invoice below ) and followed the directions with a working compressor and yes Wesyder I had forgotten but the spring shop did do something with the springs for very little cost. Was never so happy to get rid of my air shocks. I had spent thousands on the air ride - went thru two compressors and 3 shocks.
