    There is a dog bone behind the left rear tire,it connects to a plate that connects to an electronic ride sensor module , on the flat part you will see a 10mm bolt connecting the mechanical dogbone to the flat arm on the side of the electronic switch.there is an adjustment by sliding outside plate (connected to the dogbone) down. this mechanically causes your air ride to pump up earlier because it believes your car is lower than it is. but if you have air ride and electronic traction control you still need to find the leak if you have one, whether it is one air shock, an air line between, or compressor failure. the problem is there are alot of sub systems integrated into ECU that monitors your air ride . you can also have a mechanic hook your car up to a diagnostic tool and set your air ride to firm instead of soft.....

2003 seville sls rear suspention problem.

The problem is with the module controlling the active suspensions.

Often this are controlled directly from the Electronic Control Module, that is the car main computer.

To fix this you need to go to a qualified garage, and have the car computer tested with a scanner.

It may be helpful for you to get some idea of the mechanism involved in operating the shock absorbers in your vehicle. Refer this information. It may then be a matter of finding the parts involved if replacement is required

Something is causing the back end of the car to sit several inches lower than the front end.

If the vehicle has air suspention in the rear it may have one of these problems. bad sensor- pump-air line- shock. you should take it to a qualified repair shop.

I have a buick lesabre 2002 and my question is *is it normal that my rear air suspention is verry hard in whinter ???* if the car comes out from the heated garage it's OK but if it sits all night outside...

Yes this is normal. The oil in the shocks thickens just like motor oil, and their is not enough weight in the rear of the vehicle to give the shocks enough of a workout to heat up and loosen up

Looking for any fuses or relays for air bag suspension where would some be located

Generally the switch to turn off/on the air suspention is located inside a side compartment at the rear of the vehicle. Before lifting a car with air suspention, you have to turn it off to keep it from being damaged. find the switch and see that it is turned on. The owners manual tells where the fuses and relays are located.

I am changin the rear shocks on my 99 Aurora an Im not exactly sure where the airlines go for my air ride suspention??

You should have a place to connect them on the side of the new shocks - assuming you bought air-shocks. Depending on the connection type, you may have to cut the old end off and use the new ends (should be supplied with the shocks.)
