The fuse is it the right front relay/fuse box, 60 amps I think. Most likely the shocks leak, then the pump runs too much to keep them up, then the pump burns up and blows the fuse. There are companies that make a shock for the rear to delete the air ride, the air ride can cost a lot to get running again. shocks and compressor.

I have air shocks and I don't know how much pressure to put to put in them


Would say it depends on the vehicle and your load. My rule of thumb is to start at 30 PSI and gradually increase until vehicle just starts to rise. Adjust as you feel for ride. Increase pressure if you will carrying a heavy load and the rear drops. Usually air shocks max out spec is 100 - 120 PSI. More may cause damage to the shocks. Hope this helps

Can I change from air shocks to regilar shocks


You want to replace the air ride? I think that car would have air bags and not shocks. I have a friend that has one of those older huge Mercury Cougars and hers has air ride. The pump went bad and as I searched for new pumps I did find a site that sells a kit to replace the air bags with coil springs.

I don't know what the site was anymore but I do know they are out there so doing a web search would not be futile.

Need instructions on how to install rear air shocks on a 1965 Cheverolet truck


Reasonably easy to install. Remove the old shocks and replace them with the air shocks. Place the hose fittings where they won't run into anything. Attach the hoses and run them to the rear bumper. attach both lines to the "t" fitting supplied in the hose kit. find a hole in the underside of the rear bumper (or drill one) and mount the "t".Fill the shocks to around 40psi and check all your connections with soapy water to make sure they don't leak. Secure the lines to the chassis so they don't hang down and you are finished! One note. The fittings do not need to be super tight. the small "o" rings in the kit are pretty fat and usually seal pretty well hand tight. On a truck, generally you don't need to jack it up to do the job. If you do, take care not to raise it so far the wheels hang as the rear can drop when you disconnect the shocks.
It won't fall out but even a drop of several inches can hurt if your head is under there!!

Air ride is not letting the car up and down


Your air bags are whorn out, These usually last around 12-15 yr,s maybe more maybe less. to repair you have to take to a garage, And this is expencive, But there is a alternitive , You can remove the air bags and put on a set of regular shocks, This will be a lot cheeper on you. You might check around a salvage yard, but you just don't know how long they will last. Sorry can't help more, Wish you the best of luck.

Right rear air ride shock leaking bad want to know if i can raplace with regular shocks


Yes you can replace with regular shocks. You will want to remove the fuse so the pump no longer runs and you will be OK.
Good luck.

"check ride control" /suspension problems?


That is an indication that your air shocks at the rear needs to be replaced or there is a sensor that may have gone bad, event the air pump mey not be working. Most owners replace the more expensive air shocks with good conventional shocks like Monroe Reflex Shocks if there not towing heavy trailers. You can have the conventional shocks installed and have the ride control system deactivated. First check your fuse just t make sure the fuse to the air compressor has not gone bad, and the air ride leveling sensor, wire harness has not been damaged due to corrosion.

Air shocks not working on rear of my expedition


Have you had any work done on the truck recently? did you take it somewhere that they had to place it on a lift? with air shocks a lot of places don't realize they have to shut off the air and let the truck settle before it gets lifted, sounds to me like you might have a hole somewhere in the rear shocks. well hope this gives ya something to be able to figure it out...
