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.

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.

Rear shocks and compressor are toast on my 2004 Lesabre. Can I put just the shocks on and not worry about the comperessor? Are there shocks that would replace the Gm shocks?


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

Rep;acing rear shocks


If you want to replace rear shocks you'll need a socket set, jacks, jack stands, and new shock absorbers from the parts store.

Replace shocks when the rear end bounces up and down more than 3 times after depressing the bumper 6."

it has hydraulic lift shocks on the rear not air if it the shock it is not really hard to change but you have to realign the vehicle when your done because this is mounted to the rear spindle with two bolts best to let a shop do it to where it is set right.

Rear air shocks 2003 Buick LeSabre


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.
