If you look on the shocks if the front there should be switch with an arm on it. These sometimes break or slip out of place.

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.

Need to know best shocks to put on the truck


The best shocks are the ones that will handle the loads you want to give the truck. Normal driving and occasional loads can be handled quite well with a regular heavy duty shock. Most people with trucks can get by with this kind of a set up.If the ride is a little stiff when empty throw a bit of weight in the back. No name or generic heavy duty shocks will not last as long as name brands so let your budget be your guide. Cheaper shocks need replacing more often.
If you have an assortment of jobs to do with your truck, ranging from daily driver to 2 or 3 weeks of hauling a trailer to bringing home a load of top soil then you may want to look at an adjustable shocks or coil overs. These can give you the security of being able to handle the heavy loads when you need to but will compromise ride quality when empty although the adjustables wouldn't be as bad for ride. Hope this helps.

What is the ride control warning for on a 2005 yukon xl denali


It is the air shocks suspension on the rear.
When weight is added to the rear of the vehicle the ride control pump pumps up the shocks.

Rear shock replacements on '03 G. Cherokee results in "firm" ride. If shocks needs to be replaced, please advise.


Its likely that you got so used to the soft ride you had with old worn shocks that the new ones feel strange. You could buy a more inexpensive shock to restore that "old" feeling, but I don't think you really want that. One thing you should do though is to make sure by having a couple of people bounce the rear, that the shocks are not binding or are too long and bottoming out part way through the suspension travel. There is a part # stamped into the bottom of the shock just above the weld ...double check that part number to make sure you have the correct ones. Also check the standing height of the back end (compare the height of yours with others you find in parking lots...I have a 93, which measures 171/2" from center of rear wheel hub to edge of wheel flair.)
If standing height is too low, shocks are not working at the center of travel but at the lower part. (likely you would have noticed this more with the old shocks though). Additionally, there are adjustable shocks available that you can "tune" to your comfort level...they usually have three settings ...you choose the one that suits you best.
Hope something I said will give you a cure or an understandable reason for what you are feeling.
Don't forget though that a Jeep is essentially a small truck, as such, it's going to ride like one!

Level ride shocks not working.


have a self test run buy the dealer on the self leveling system, most common causes are the ride height sensor, the air pump is defective or the pump relay is defective.

Trouble With Air Ride Thats What the Gage Inside Said, I have a ford explorer eddy bauer 1998 i turn the truck off and i hear like a strange sound from the back like a shock absorber is going down and i...


Can you hear the pump kick in when you put weight in the back and the car is running? The way it works is there is a level sensor that mounts between the body of the car and the rear axle. When weight is added in the rear the compressor will add air until the vehicle is level. When weight is taken out of the car which could be the rear passengers getting out of the car the vehicle is now higher and the pump will release air to lower the shocks back to a level height. This is why youare hearing that sound. The pump will let air out of the system even when the engine is off to maintain a level ride. If you found this solution helpful please rate it.

Thanks - Tech101
