    92 deville ride height ?

    I had new strust and air shocks put on my car however the rear seems to be low especially on the drivers side. What would cause this? I was told front springs but that does not make sense. the ass end is just too low. The compressor does work. Is the rear height adjustable? I appreciate any help.

    Make sure that they replaced the rear shocks with passive air ride shocks. Also make sure that they installed the air line correctly and that it's not leaking.

    I bought original replacement air shocks which they installed in the rear. The ride is better but still sits as low as before they were replaced.. air lines don't leak compressor seems to work as it should. could it be springs? has 105,000 miles now.

    Yes it could possibly be the springs... Eibach sells springs for our cars, but they're designed to lower it 1 inch so I'm not sure if you'd be interesed. LOL.


    The easiest way to search for leaks in the system is to put the back end on ramps and then go through diagnostics mode to the "RSS OUTPUTS?" menu then to "PD08". Just leave PD08 on the dashboard and the computer will cycle the pump on and off, which will give you a chance to get under it with a sponge and soapy water to wet the air lines and look for bubbles.

    Don't do this with the back wheels off the ground. I have heard of them overextending the shocks, which makes the rear end stick way up untill you replace them again.
