    level ride purpose

    Can anyone help me on this, 92 deville deville, what does the level ride do actually? Does it have anything to due at all with the quality of the ride as the passenger load increases?

    Re: level ride purpose

    As the name implies, it levels your ride. Caddies had this feature since the 50s (or earlier).

    The car has a pair of air shocks in the rear, an electric compressor and a sensor which tells it the position of the rear suspension in reference to the rest of the car.

    If you load up the trunk or have couple of people in the back seat, the sensor will turn on the compressor which will pump up the air shocks to get the car back to level.

    When the car gets unloaded, there is a valve that opens to let the air out of the air shocks.

    That is a simple explanation....

    It's not just for looks either. A car handles better when it's level and the weight is distributed more evenly. It also keeps your headlights pointed at the road instead of the trees or oncoming drivers.
