SOURCE: Rear air ride suspension is not maintaining height

The are ride height adjusters the look like arms. they are mounted on the bottom of the struts and lower control arms that control the height The can be adjust but for the most part if the were working fine before then they need to be replaced. Make sure that there are no leaks in the system.

you may want to buy regular heavy duty shocks and put on the car to raise the back up high enough to do what you are trying to do.

it may not have been pluged in or the arm that goes from the contrl arm to the sensor not snap in to place . the rod snaps in to a ball and socket . if you look under the rear of the car you should see it it bolts to the fram and has a arm that goes to the lower control arm .

SOURCE: Air Ride Sensors Corroded?

you buy a car with all these electronics. ride hieght sensors for each wheel. this is affecting that. then when you go to the dealership you want them to replace only the exact one piece that fails. that could take hours of diagnosis time. at damn near 100 per hour. go ahead and give them the car. let them do diag. total price 2000. or you have narrowed it down to brains or sensor. do it yourself 1000. problem solved it should cost 1000-2000 to fix. if u find parts cheaper. money in your pocket

Air ride on my 99 cad. devill when people in back seat will bottom out rides to low


If you have Air shocks in the back they are worn out

Your going to get that low ride when people sit in the
back even with new rear shocks & a small adjustment to
the level control to raise the rear

You need to air your tires to the max on tire sidewall

Can I replace my air ride shocks on the back of my 96 explorer with regular shocks and do away with the air ride? I need new shocks and don't want to invest alot of money on an old car.


Yes, you can just put regular shocks on the back,just make sure you get shocks that have the same length as your original ones and that are from a explorer without air suspension.That way you wont have the back end of the car riding too low or bottoming out.

Is there a heavy duty coil over shock I can use in place of the original rear shocks in my 2002 navigator?


If you mean as a substitute for the Air ride there are conversion kits. Just look in your Browser and search for terms like "Lincoln Air ride conversions", "Rear spring kits for Navigators", and so on.

There are also shocks with Booster springs which can increase load capacity.

In addition, several companies do repair the Rubber bags and you can get what you need from Salvage yards to put your ride back to original shape.

On some of the cars with Air ride, I believe it was $300 minimum for a conversion, for just the coiled shocks, I believe $120 a pair. Anything for a Lincoln Logo you will pay more and often. I have not used any of these kits, so I can not say how good they are or what the Install price is. The Web is the best place to price out these parts.

1996 seville rear air ride too high


The ride level system uses an air compressor and either an air type of shocks or a type of air billow to raise and lower the vehicle, there is an adjustment to set the ride height and it is located under the vehicle and there is a control lever or rod that should be connected between the rear axle and a switch that is mounted on the body of the vehicle, and there will be an adjustment slot in the control lever between the switch and the body, and that is how you would adjust the ride level height, but be sure that the vehicle can not drop any further down if someone is under the vehicle trying to adjust the ride height.

However, you might find that the control lever to the ride level has fallen off from the switch on the body or it has come loose from the rear axle, and it is just hanging there not operating the switch on the body that controls the the ride level compressor.

Lift sensor for rear of 1988 Deville


To begin with, check the "ride level" fuse and make sure that the ride level compressor does work, and you should be able to hear that the ride level compressor is working when the ride level system is leveling the vehicle.

The ride level system uses an air compressor and either an air type of shocks or a type of air billow to raise and lower the vehicle, there is an adjustment to set the ride height and it is located under the vehicle and there is a control lever or rod that should be connected between the rear axle and a switch that is mounted on the body of the vehicle, and there will be an adjustment slot in the control lever between the switch and the body, and that is how you would adjust the ride level height, but be sure that the vehicle can not drop any further down if someone is under the vehicle trying to adjust the ride height.

However, you might find that the control lever to the ride level has fallen off from the switch on the body or it has come loose from the rear axle, and it is just hanging there not operating the switch on the body that controls the the ride level compressor, or there might be a blown out air shock or billow, or you might find that an air line from the compressor is leaking and the ride level compressor will just run continuously until it blows out the fuse, and if that is the case you might also find out that the air compressor has burned out from running continuously.

I hope that this information will help you to solve your ride level problem.

Nope, just make sure your back space is 6" of it's 4wd and your wheel circumference is not larger then 29" and the tire with is no wider then 10" or your going to have tire fender contacts when then the suspension drops over pumps.

Thank you for using fixya and good luck

My 92 seville is sagging in the back any ideas on


Yes doe's your car, have the air ride suspension if so you need to replace the air pump or the air ride shocks on the rear or look for a valve under the rear bumper or in the trunk to inflate the shocks.. if nowhere to be found then take your car, in to a shop.
Good Luck!
