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.

The issue with your air ride can be a number or things. Let me tell ya this though ... after replacing a bunch of parts on my ride before I found the problem was in the lines. I called Strutmasters.com and bought a non air conversion kit for my car. I love it! I love the price even better!! One thing for sure they know their cars!!

The air ride in my 02 seville wont raise the rear.I hear the compressor kick in when the car is started at least i think its the compressor it's coming from the rear Any idea how to fix it ?


Here's an idea to get you started.
Put the back end of the car up on ramps so you can crawl underneath it.
With the front tires blocked securely, have a helper get into the car and roll down the windows so they can hear you talk from under the car.
Have the parking brake set.
Take a bucket or container of soapy water and a brush, and / or a spray bottle of soapy water, and crawl under to car.
Have the helper start the car, and look and listen for leaks.
I have heard the air bags leak on air ride cars after a few years. The soapy water should show a leak when applied to the air bags and the air lines.

Just purchased a 85 seville having a problem with rear air ride not leveling. how do i check &fix


first make sure the compressor is working, then check the air bags if it is,, listen for any air leaks, these may be in the bags themselves or in the lines, even slight leaks will stop the system from working, spray soapy water at all connections and look for bubbles

What does it mean to service ride control?


When this occurs you have an problem with your ride control.You need to replace your front struts on your car.Also it can be that your vehicle may have an problem with your air shocks located in the rear of the vehicle.Sometimes,these vehicles are prone to have an slow leak out of the rear air shocks that as an result cause the service ride control warning to accumulate.

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!

Back end rides high!


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 .

Suspension


Yes, there is a rear ride height sensor.
Looks kind of like a little shock absorber.
You might be able to find it at NAPA or similar parts house.
You're looking at least $100.00 to $175.00 for the part if you can find them.
