What's the standard shocks for it


Usually when a car has air shocks that car is built with an air compressor to keep those shocks blown up. My Buick had air shocks and a compressor but the shocks wore out and was losing all the air making the compressor wear out. Instead of replacing everything at a great expense I had new air shocks put on throwing the compressor away. and run an air line just under my license plate, Just pump them up like pumping a tire . I check them about every three months and saved a lot of money.

Rear shocks are stiff, and it rides very hard.


Rear shocks are the Air Shocks and they need compressed air in order to work properly, so you have to take closer look at your air management system.

Air shocks trouble shooting no air to shocks rear end saggs


first off! check the shocks seperately with a seperate line to each shock to insure the boots are not blown!! also check the o-rings or farrow beed's around the lines where to go into the shocks for leakage with some dish soap and a spray bottle if thr shocks seems to hold air when isolated from the system then you either have a broken line or the lines where they connect to the ir pump itself are leaking of one side of the air pump it leaking internally`

2003 Olds Silhoutte Air Shocks and Compressor - not working


The load leveling shock will not work if there is an issue with the compressor. If you buy the sir shock's, your going to have to address the compressor issue to even have the air shocks level the Silhouette. Once you have the compressor issue addressed, the shocks it's self is simple enough to replace that you can do it with common tools to save you some money. My wife has a Montana and we had the same problem, since we do not tow and really never hold that much weight. We replaced the rear shocks with Monroe Reflex Shocks, Found the van to be much more sturdy then the air shocks ever were and the good thing about them is there were lift time replacement at Parts Source. Regardless on which shocks your going to use, it's a good rule to replace both sides at the same time. The only difference in to reinstalling the air shocks is you need to reattach the air lines to the shocks and that's simple as removing the shocks it self. The shocks are only held on by two bolts,  one on top and one on bottom and should only take about 20 min each side to do since you have to jack the car up and remove the wheel for room, but you can remove the shocks it self without removing the wheel, it's your preference. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to answer any questions you may have.

Air adjustable ride control, not working with new shocks


a common problem for this is when the hook up the shocks, the air line plugs in the rubber o-ring is missing. go back to the shop that did it. if you did it, go the the dealer and get 2 new o-rings and install them between the shock and air line. best of luck.
