I had an 86 deville

I would say just replace them, if you can
even get them & the compressor still
works

Doubt a dealer has them anymore
There are companies that make
lots of air struts

I think you have struts at least 1985 & 86 did

You have to have it aligned after you replace them,
with struts

You won't have obd 1 software, to command them up & down
& you would have to make a fitting to put on the shock/
strut to test them or at the compressor outlet

There is or should be a level control arm on the rear suspension,
that may be corroded or failed

If you turn on the key & pop off the level switch arm & move by hand, you can check that way

Measure from the wheel lip to the ground on both sides, before
you play around with the level control arm

SOURCE: 1998 seville sts check suspension light stays on.

that system has a pump, you should hear it run when you start the car. it also has a bleed valve. i have seen the valve get stuck before. i don't remember what year caddillac stopped putting the suspension switch in the trunk, but if the switch has been turned off the light will remain on as well. there is a level sensor under the rear of the car connected to the suspension you can try to disconnect the arm and manually move it and see if the pump kicks on. there is a few second delay before you hear the pump. if the fuses are good and the switch is on check for voltage at the pump when you move the level sensor. check for signal from the sensor. if pump runs and shock don't air up check for air leaks with soap water spray, and/or air bypassing valve. hope i helped you...dustang

yes u can, u will need one of suncore industries kits ($539.00) to do the conversion to standard shock strut system, u will also need the relay kit. Call them before u buy.

SOURCE: rear brake caliper removal

I just did the rear caliper on my '95 Deville Concours and found that the caliper would not rotate enough to slide it off the top bolt. My solution was to remove the parking brake cable bracket bolt behind the caliper. This gave me the ability to rotate the caliper enough to get the caliper off of the brake pads and slide the caliper towards the inside of the car.

84 Cadillac seville rear air shocks dont work


Time to replace them. Look for cracked air lines or a compressor not running too.

Air ride suspension rear dont work how can i check whats wrong?


The 97 Caddie Seville STS has an air compressor located under the car just in front of the passenger side muffler, above the crossmember. It is a pretty weak compressor, and is only designed to slowly fill up the shocks. Probable issues are a blown compressor, or leaky shocks. Before replacing either make sure you have power going to the compressor, and air going to the shocks. No power to the compressor could be caused by a bad wire, relay, connector or fuse all of which are cheaper to fix. If you have power, check the little air lines leading to the shocks from the compressor to see if you have a leak. Airlines are much cheaper than shocks.

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!
