There should be a level switch in the rear of the car.The connector may have come unplugged,or filled with water.or maybe the switcch is bad.Or,it could be as simple as a disonnected or broken link arm at the switch.

You may be able to determine which air spring is leaking by measuring the distance from ground to the fender after the vehicle has been sitting. This may narrow your search somewhat.

make sure you don't have an air leak at the springs or the compressor. but you may want to have the air suspension module checked for fault codes. the module itself may be the issue not processing the inputs correctly and mis-leveling the vehicle.

The compressor died on my 02 Bravada and I have a leak in one of the air bags/springs. I was thinking of buying two new air springs and just bypassing the compressor till I replace it. I was thinking I...


I shared the exact issue this past summer with my 02 Bravada. For about 26 dollars you can put a valve stem on both airlines and bypass the expensive dead compressor. This fixed the problem for about a month until one airbag began to leak faster than the other and the truck always seemed to sit unlevel. Today I purchased 2 used coil springs from a junkyard for 65 dollars and replaced the airbags in less than an hour without any special tools. The truck sits up well and level and I'm glad to be rid of all problems that go along with having air suspension. GM used the same coil springs on the Envoy, Trail Blazer and Buick Reiner.

Busted drivers side spring. howdo you remove it safely


coil spring:
buy/rent a spring compressor.
hook it upside down over the second last coils of the spring(second last coil of the unbroken part) (bolt heads down and accessible) so that the compressor clears the spring seats.
Use all parts of the compressor.
Do up the spring compressor till it is just tight.

Put the car up on a 2 post, as the load comes off the suspension the spring will tighten in the compressor and flop around loose on the strut. Unbolt the top strut mounts. lower the axle until there is clearance and lift the spring off the strut.
Slowly take the tension off the spring compressor
Put the new spring in the spring compressor, (second last coils to clear the spring seats when reinstalling).
tighten the spring compressor, evenly and compress the spring, till it fits over the strut.
lift the axle, bolt on the top strut mounts, slowly release spring compressor, ensure top n bottom spring coils seat in the spring seats.
lower two post hoist
test drive

Always replace springs together as a pair
