SOURCE: Rear shocks and compressor are

yes, you can just order them without level ride, you could also install the same ones the only thing is the air part will not be used, but if the shock without air is cheaper then just use them, i think it may be hard to get without air as seeing they all have the air ride, again if a problem just use the stock shock without useing the air,you could install hoses to shock and put your own air in them, there would be a valve you install under the bumper or where ever you like, you would ask for a air shock hose kit, easy to install. hope this helps, heres a picture of kitafc0076.jpg

I'd have them checked first to determine if it is actually the shocks, or possibly just a loose or cracked line, which should be a pretty inexpensive fix. If it turns out to be shocks, weigh it out then.

Does a 2001 buick lesabre have shocks ? if so how much does it cost to replace?


Ok first of all your car has shocks in the rear and they are not very hard to replace or terribly expensive. The front has what they call struts which in effect are shocks with a springs wrapped around them as an assembly. Replacing struts can be expensive and will probably need to be changed by a shop if you are not equipped to do it yourself. You will most likely need to get the wheels aligned as well. I recommend calling around to different shops for a price. My guess for new front struts installed plus the alignment is $300-$400.

I am not getting any shock action on the rear of my 2000 Lesabre. The rear of the car gets unstable when hitting bumps; like driving a hardtail. The problem came on suddenly after not driving it for about...


Your Buick LeSabre may have air shocks on the rear. Check the shocks for leakage or stains from previous leaking. If the shocks are leaking you'll need to replace the set. Don't replace only one shock-replace them both.

How do I replace rear air shocks on 2001 buick lesabre?


Take skirting down in trunk on the side you are working on. Remove center nut on shock 15MM. Then jack that side up or whole rear of car and place jack stand or jack under control arm. Now you can remove the two 10MM bolts that fasten the bottom of the shock to the control arm, most of the time the speed nuts brake but you can hold on to them with a pair of pliers. Once this is done remove the shock place all hardware on shock and install. The new shock will come with an 18MM center nut. Hope this helps.

Rear shock replacement on 2002 lesabre with elec. levelers


The rear shocks are eather standard gas shocks, or air shocks. If you have and air system to control the shocks then you would just have to unbolt them and disconnect the air line. Install them just as you took them off. If its just reagular shocks then you would have to remove 2 bolts.


Some cases there are 4 wheel struts, then you would have to unbolt them from the fender wells in the trunk.

Not to bad of a job but it can take a few.
