    I have actually found the source of what probably made the crack in the first place... it was a HOLE in the air hose it probably let water in the shock, than froze than made the shock swell and cracked... frozen water expanded than it cracked the shock's body tube

    Hope this helps!!!

Yes this is normal. The oil in the shocks thickens just like motor oil, and their is not enough weight in the rear of the vehicle to give the shocks enough of a workout to heat up and loosen up

    I've found the problem, after close inspection of my shock absorber, there is actually an OIL shock combined with an air balloon to LEVEL the car... GM's good idea of a FLORIDA built conception the shock has a small crack in the bottom portion of the tube and it filled with water, then the OIL MIXED with the water and it froze so that is why it was so stiff in the cold QUEBEC winter... conclusion... I need to replace that shock but what made the crack in the first place??? Quebec wether.... sh...t! i should move to FLORIDA hi hi!

Is there any way I can replace the air suspention on my 2000 Buick Lesaber with regular shocks I am looking for a more inexpensive way to fix it I hear the motor running trying to pump but the shock...

i would contact a supplier that deals with aftermarkt suspension systems, removing the air ride will require you to beef up the spring rate ,

Load leveler repair

it has hydraulic lift shocks on the rear not air if it the shock it is not really hard to change but you have to realign the vehicle when your done because this is mounted to the rear spindle with two bolts best to let a shop do it to where it is set right.

Service stability system

one of the four load stability sensors (one at each wheel suspention arm) has gone awry. Computer diagnostics (Advanced scan tool) will tell you which one. Suggest replace both on front or both on rear (whichever the case)
