Lot of hummer have 4 wheel auto leveling. Is SCS amber color lamp lit. And chances are of sensor stock or broke at normal height or. A hole in airbag. If hole. Replace all four and new compressor exhaust valve. Or intake which ever the one on top side of compressor. This valve has a filter. Check the computer controlled 4way valve for stuck silinoid. Due to dirt. I don't remember which system is in your year h3 but both valves may be separate from compressor or all in one unit. Some middle years could change vent vale separate from compressor. Compressor is a spendy unit. I Don't recall any figures but remember I gasped when I saw the price while working in a gm dealership.

Adjust the torsion bar by turning the large bolt located under the vehicle about where the back of the seat is. Check with measuring tape to level vehicle on both sides.

Most trucks and off road vehicles suffer from the springs becoming week or sagging. You can replace the springs or get some lifts or extenders. I found some on eBay for my truck.

Why does my VW Polo nose dive.....

Have not seen the lay-out of a Polo Fuel tank, but it may be that the shape of the tank is bigger to the left than to the right - resulting in more fuel going to the left when turning right - adding more weight.

IF the fuel tank is not a-simetrical, it may be your right front shock that is warn OR the shock mounting rubber at the top where it is bolted to the body may be torn causing that shock to not function properly. Had that on an Audi.

I have a 99 chevy Tahoe that I bought three years ago it has 20" wheels and tires I recently replace all new tires, front shocks,inner tie rod ends, brakes and front rotors it has a death wobble in the...

There are a number of things that could cause a front end vibration, and while it may seem to be coming from the left front, it may not necessarily be so. That said, however, lets list them from the left front first.

1. I am assuming this is a 2WD vehicle, as 20 inch rims on a 4x4 are odd to say the least. Therefore, it is possible that the front bearings were not adjusted properly when installing the new front rotor. Too loose or too tight could bring on the issue. Jack the left front corner up and try to shake the wheel side-to-side and up-and-down. If it only shakes side-to-side, it could be the outer tie rod end. If it only shakes up and down, check the upper and lower ball joints. If ot goes both ways, it's probably the bearings. Chances are if you felt the vibration, readjustment won't be enough. You'll probably have to have the bearings replaced.

2. Be sure that the wheel is fastened properly to the hub. If it has gotten wedged or skewed, it could cause issues (not likely).

3. Check the idler arm for excessive wear. When this wears out, the tires will constantly track in (or out) depending on alignment, then "jump" back to straight, causing a shake in the steering.

My 98 aurora rear shocks have nothing left. it bounces all over road can i put regular shocks on rear or do they make a self filler kit to bypass the compressor? whats the cheapest,but safe way to fix it?

You want the safest way, the filler kit will not work...You need to replace them and get your mechanic to check your front shocks as well because if the front ones are bad and you replace the back only, your car will look like a drag racing car and you will have extremely bad handling..

Where do I put the supports when working underneath 2006 Chevy Malibu? I need to change my rear shocks

Look under the car - you'll see 2 long metal rails ( the frame rails) . Support each side with a 2 ton minimum jack stand fully extended approximately one foot ( 12" ) in front of the rear wheels. Now use your jack ( preferably floor style ) to lift one of the rear wheels to relieve the pressure on the shock. Remove fasteners securing the shock, then remove and replace the shock. If the new shock has a plastic strap attached, do not cut this strap until you have mounted the shock on the vehicle. If you do not have an exposed frame rail, you'll see a "pad" in front of the rear wheel close to the outside of the car - it should be about 10 inches in from the pinch weld and about 12 inches in front of the wheel. Use this pad for the stand and lift the vehicle by the c shaped bar that goes from 1 rear wheel to the other. Do not support the car with just the jack -it could let loose and drop the car on you.
Hope this helps!

Front shocks

You need a deep 9/16 socket for the top nut, on a swivel would be great. Keep the jeep on the ground and remove the top nut first. Remove the bottom 1/2 inch nuts and bolts (2). Install in reverse order.
