=========================
Monroe MA822 is an excellent choice -

MONROE 71685 for the front -

there is a $60 rebate for 2 struts and 2 shocks -

Re: Cadillac deville monroe ma822 shocks

The rears are easy. The upper mounts are in the trunk and the MA822's are a plug n play with your auto leveling system. Put them on my '03 DHS and my wife's '05 LeSabre and have no complaints. They ride like factory.

if my compressor comes on I would think it would be ok? can I just replace the solenoid or the vent?

If the compressor is turning on without adding a load, then there is a leak in the system.
If a load is removed and the system does not vent and the rear end stays high, then the problem is the vent solenoid or valve and can be serviced separately (if you can find one).

=======================
the air lines are rarely a problem -

your code C0660 -
suggests the problem is within the compressor assembly -

---------------------

if you don't want to spend $235 on a new compressor -
you could buy the Monroe AK29 manual fill kit -
around $12 - and inflate/deflate the rear shocks mamually - as needed -
it's exactly like inflating a tire -

okay that sounds like an idea maybe if I manually fill them how long do you suppose they will stay full or do I have to fill them quite often

=========================
if the system is "tight" -
the only reason for changing pressure -
would be to compensate for added - or reduced weight -
in the back seat and or trunk -

Ok since I've had the car (about 2 years)I've always had the rimco660 code and whenever I've had passages in the back it never really sags low at all
