Question about Chevrolet Uplander

Open Question

My 2006 chevy uplander conversion van has excessive side to side sway.a month ago the right rear shock blew & after dealer replaced both rear air shocks & blamed the right rear spring compression during the "kneel" function for wearing it out every 3 or 4 years.the kneel function stopped working because of it's controller burnt out.this cost hundreds $ to replace, i didn't need it and do not it to kill my new shocks so i didn't have kneel circuit replaced. even with new air shocks,sway problem persists & seems to also bottom out easily.they checked,and say air-compressor and "level" sensor works and has no adjustment so as to allow shocks to fill to a higher pressure to stiffen the rear end to improve ride.dealer says he can't do anything more & he "has seen worse".Can you help ???

Clunking noise in the rear of the vehicle is a broad statement. When is the vehicle doing it? Is it all the time or just over bumps? Is it happening only going around curves? Is it a constant bump that speeds up and slows down with the vehicle speed. You would be supprised how many clunking noises can come from the driveline not the suspension. It could be anything from a bushing to your rear differential getting ready to grenade.

SOURCE: 2004 yukon xl denali self-leveling rear air shocks

There's a lever that connects the driver-side rear shock to the Automatic Level Control module (the air compressor and the ride-height sensor). Disconnect the lever from the shock and rotate it up and hold it. The compressor should kick in when you hold in place after a few seconds. If it doesn't kick in, make sure your fuses and relays are good. Otherwise, you may have a failed ALC module/burned out air compressor (from the shocks being shot). After you replace the shocks (and after you recouped from the heart attack you had when you shelled out $500+ for each shock), replace the ALC module/compressor (it's all one unit), and test it - it should kick on when you rotate the lever up again.

Figure about $350 for the ALC module from your dealer, and make sure the part numbers match! Your truck came with an upgraded ALC module from the 2001-2004 module, which were prone to water damage.

Good luck!

SOURCE: 99 Deville rear air shocks not working.

This is an expensive repair sometimes and you may want to replace this system with inflatable air bags that fit inside the rear coil springs and then are inflated. I think they cost about $80.00 or $120.00 depending on the car.

He must of hit a curb or pothole, The vehicle needs a 4 wheel alignment, Chances are pretty good theres visable major damage. Also check the lower ball joints, there was a lubrication issue as the zerk fittings don't accept or hold grease.

Ask for uprated springs or change shocks for adjustable. It could be they are worn and heavy loads are too much for them. Just rear units should sort this.

What other vehicles sway bar would be a good fit for my 2006 Chevrolet Uplander


hey eric, sorry for the delayed reply been on vacation. i dont believe you will find another vehicle that the sway bar will fit this vehicle. the closest thing would be an impala.sway bars help control the vehicles body roll during cornering some performance cars have larger sway bars and companies offer larger sway bars for increased handling. but a minivan would not be a big market for companies to design a larger bar so i doubt you will find one if you are looking for somee better handling options for your van let me know and we can explore some options

Rear air conditioning


The rear fan fuse is located in the engine compartment on the drivers side to the bottom right of the master cylinder there is a black cover, its right in there it should be a 30 amp fuse, if you flip the fuse cover it will tell you where it is. hope it helps, but if it blown look into the fan or the switch, it blew because of a reason.
