New rear shocks/struts should solve the problem. Their purpose is to absorb bumps, bouncing, when worn out u get the basketball (up and down) effect. This is probably why the variable suspension switch has little effect. What is the mileage? Did this problem start gradually, or happen quickly? U can check rear shocks/struts for leakage of oil, another sign they should be replaced. Let me know if this helps, if not we can check further.

How do i replace the evo on my 2001 ford expedition?

I think you are a little confused. "EVO" stands for Electronic Variable Orifice. This has to do with your variable assist power steering - not your air suspension. What it sounds like you are describing by "doohicey" is a suspension height sensor. If the sensor is broken or damaged, it will cause the air suspension to drop down. Just replace the sensor and it will probably work again. Suspension height sensor failures are pretty common.

Check suspsension came on in my 2003

Sounds like your air ride suspension is either leaking air in the air bags, air lines,etc, or the compressor is not working. If your truck is still under warranty take it to the dealership to get it fixed or with a good mechanic. If it is an air bag or the compressor start checking online for any good, cheap parts because parts for this SUV run expensive.

Suspension bouncy

i am not familiar with the mercedes suspension but your problem is caused by bad shocks .. not sure if they are seperate from the hydraulic system .. if they are then thats what you need .. if the shocks are part of the hydraulic system (that would be some neat engineering) .. then there is likely a valve that acts like a shock absorber in that system .. it sounds like the suspension system is working good .. its just the shock absorber system that is causing the trouble ..

Front is down back is very high: Ben driving for an hour car started to get alittle bouncy then light comes on for air suspension now very bouncy front is all the way down back is very high. Could this...

try turning the air ride compressor off and letting it go all the way down then turn it back on and see if it fixes it. the switch is either on the right hand kick panel or in the cargo area. if this does not fix it but the vehicle does lift up it is more than likely the level sensor causing the problem it is attached to the suspension.

Infiniti FX 35 stiff ride

The FX is a bouncy car, but it's necessary to accommodate it's good performance. You can try some aftermarket air shocks, or check into different tires. That should help.
