    1995 STS Rear Suspension messing up

    I'm a newbie here and I am sure this has been asked before but I have a 95 STS with 151k that has just started having the service ride control message come on and today the rear end is elevated. I am new to anything suspension but am mechanically inclined somewhat. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Jeff

    Re: 1995 STS Rear Suspension messing up

    The suspension itself is probably OK. Our cars incorporate Electronic Level Control to compensate for extra weight in the trunk and rear seat - it is NOT suspension (ride quality) control. A height sensor, height sensor link rod, or the compressor/control head may be faulty. The system adds or vents air from auxiliary bladders on each rear shock. The front struts have no such system. It is NOT any form of "air ride".

    Your car has a built-in diagnostic trouble code system and the ELC parts are monitored for faults. Study the sticky thread "How to pull codes" and use the correct model/year section along with the definitions link for OBD1 diagnostic codes.
