98 deville rear suspension problem

I have a 98 deville where the tail end sits low to the ground before s tarting it in the morning. The air system activates and the car rises in the back, but after driving for a while the rear end sinks back down to it's lowest point. would it be the air lines and where could i find them? if there is any other info that could help it would be greatly appreciated?

You may have either leaking shocks. follow the air line from the shock to the compressor.

I think that my 1998 Cadillac air suspension system is going bad


I had a problem with my '98 Deville. I had a lot of issues with the air shocks and all the other electronic stuff that goes with that. I called the dealer, and they wanted $3500 to fix it!!! I found www.Strutmasters.com and they converted my car to a "passive" suspension, which bypassed that whole computer thing. Now I have a lifetime warranty, and I am VERY satisfied with the ride. The best part is that it only cost $800 and I got all new suspension! I highly recommend them for your vehicle!

Low rear suspension on my 1999 Cadillac DeVille


Do you hear your compressor running? It may be that it is getting tired and ready to burn out on you. I replaced the compressor twice on my Deville before I found that there were so many holes and nicks in the air bags and it was going to cost me almost $1500 to fix the whole system. I went online and found Strutmasters. I got a non air conversion kit for my car and love it. Saved me money and headache.

Rear suppenion low to the ground


There is an air compressor mountedmabove the rear suspension. The fuse for the air ride suspension is located behind the trunk rear trim panel. There is a level sensor on the rear control arm. If fuse is good, check for power at plug feeding compressor, compressor failure common. With suspesion at low position, sensor should send power to compressor. if no power suspect height sensor. Check relay for power and operation although failure rare.

Service Ride Control light flashes constantly" Is this serious?


Robert,
When you come out in the morning is the vehicle sitting low to the ground especially on one corner or one end? Can you hear an air pump that seems to run for a long time? These are notorious for having the air suspension bags to start leaking. The only fix is to replace the bags. This is not a job for an amature. You can get be seriously hurt or killed if you don't know exactly what you are doing. Take it to a pro.
Thanks, rich

Common problem on all air suspension vehicles. It could be that there is a hairline crack in one of the shock bladders or that the pump is just too weak to pump up to it's intended pressure, a sensor or solenoid could also be bad.

Whenever I run into this problem I order a spring conversion kit for that vehicle, it is usually not worth spending $3000+ to repair the suspension.

www.Strutmasters.com sells the best kits, $327.00 for the rear. It also comes with a resistor so that your suspension light is not on.

AIR SUSPENSION PROBLEMS FOR 2000 LINCOLN TOWNCAR CARTIER


I have serviced these in the past and it will probably be a combination of things. I just a few weeks ago fixed a 1999 with the same problems. Generally from past repairs, the electric pump has been working overtime to compensate for leaking rear air shocks. The best solution is to replace them both, not a cheap repair, the pump around 275.00 and each shock arount 275.00.
Just with every thing over time things fail, the rear shocks develop leaks over time/weather cracks, they are easy to check, soapy water will identify this as the problem. If you can get under it enough to spray around the bottom of the shocks when they are inflated. These systems are computer controlled and if you have the proper scanner you can check the system out for eletrical problems easily. My past experiences with these suspensions as almost always the shocks and pump.
