I really like this car,almost bought one new. Now as you know OLD S has been gone since yours was made. No Parts at GM. Never were good in that area. I had a Caddy and did what you want to do when parts were avail. I stayed with the Air Strut/Shock from GM and adjusted ride height sensor ,then off to alignment. Compressor may be under battery,you'll hear it when you turn key on if it works. Kind of old to spend money on. I buy new and keep 17 years and do my own work for 46 years plus owned a shop a couple years. 15 years old is time to ride it out to the end.not restore it. Get a 68 Reviera for that. Forget the air if it becomes had to find parts or send yours out and have them rebuilt if they aren't rusted through.

How do I chnage the front and rear shocks in a 2001 4.0

The shocks in the rear just unbolt top and bottom, disconnect the air line and replace them.

Struts are used in the front. You'll need to remove them and then have a spring compressor to change the struts. An alignment check is recommended after the struts are replaced.

When i hit some uneven pavement, I can hear my back struts, kind of sounding like they need to be oiled. My check air suspension light came on, and stayed on for about an hour. It has not been on since. ...

there is a couple of questions that actually need answers prior to a diagnosis such as one of them is do you ever turn your vehicle off and still here your compressor come on to prime your ar bags if so i would recomend replacment of the air bags on the rear your vehicle has shocks on the rear not struts the air suspension is a seperate unit on this vehicle it doesnt have air shocks but shocks and air bags over extending air bags can blow them and cause small leaks if you do not hear the compressor coming on check you rear sway bar you might need rear sway barr links or bushing which is not a huge repair expense and also sometime what you might think is comeing from the rear of your vehicle might actually be comeing from the front have your swaybar in the from checked as well

I need shocks, they have never been replaced in 107K miles. Does this car have 4 shocks or 2 shocks and 2 struts

Thr front will be MacPherson struts, a shock absorber surrounded by a coil spring looking set-up.

If you have front wheel drive and you have Electronic Ride Control (ERC), then the rear suspension has "super lift air shocks".

If you have all wheel drive, then you have struts in the rear suspension.

Does help any?

the pump should be underneath the trunk behind right rear tire, if not follow the noise when the pump is running - the leveling switch is on the rear suspension arms - sounds like the pump is not pumping enough air or you have an air leak in the struts

1989 xt6 subaru front struts

Overtime the rubber boots dry out and create small cracks that leak slowly on the front and rear air suspension. Through experimentation, I have found that you can add this green material called "Green Goop" that you add to bicycle tires to stop leaks. I added four ounces to each shock and exercised them while removed from the car. You'll see this material bleed through these airline cracks. Reinstall shocks but be careful not to allow this green material to leak back to the air solenoid. If the air suspension light on the dashboard is blinking, the compressor has shut down in fault condition. Put the ignition key to off remove the negative side on the battery, turn the key to on and then off. Replaced battery cable and this should clear the fault. If it does not you will half to add air into the system by removing one of the air tubes into the system to build up some pressure and will help to clear the fault. While this may be time-consuming and looks to be complicated, it‘s not! If you have any mechanical ability this can be really achieved and so, will save you couple thousand dollars in replacing the air suspension. One air shock from the dealer is $450. Of course you can convert to standard shocks that are on the market. But this takes away from that great ride that only air suspension can give you! And that makes a XT6 the best! Hope this helps?
