Where exactly is the switch for the air suspension compressor on a 2006 Buick Lucerne CXL?


The automatic level control (ALC) system maintains a desired rear suspension position under all types of towing, hauling, and loading conditions.
The system uses the electronic suspension control module (ESCM), ALC relay, ALC compressor assembly, air dryer, air lines, LR and RR shock absorbers with integral air chambers, LR and RR suspension position sensors, exhaust valve, driver information center (DIC), and the serial data circuit to perform the system functions.

Do kia sedona have rear shocks or air suspennsion?


all suspension systems has shocks, but some are free standing and some are part of a Mcpherson Strut assembly, your rear suspension has standard stand alone shocks, they are not air shocks.

Shock absorber on legacy hissing and is very low on that side


The suspension on those is really a brilliant thing, isn't it? Unfortunately, bladders that control the ride height don't last forever and they're pretty expensive to replace. The few that have been in my shop for leaking bladders have been retrofitted with conventional struts all around. Not what you wanted to hear, I'm sure, but it's a LOT more expensive to replace the adjustable suspension, and you can bet that if one of them has ruptured, the others aren't far behind.
The only thing that I can think of that might be a good temporary fix (6 months?) is to get a used air adjust strut from a salvage yard. If you can find one. Superupair in Boulder, Colorado usually has the most used Suby parts, and I believe they ship nationally.
Good luck!

Overtime the rubber boots dry out and create small cracks that leak slowly on the front and rear air suspension. Through experimentation, I have found that you can add this green material called "Green Goop" that you add to bicycle tires to stop leaks. I added four ounces to each shock and exercised them while removed from the car. You'll see this material bleed through these airline cracks. Reinstall shocks but be careful not to allow this green material to leak back to the air solenoid. If the air suspension light on the dashboard is blinking, the compressor has shut down in fault condition. Put the ignition key to off remove the negative side on the battery, turn the key to on and then off. Replaced battery cable and this should clear the fault. If it does not you will half to add air into the system by removing one of the air tubes into the system to build up some pressure and will help to clear the fault. While this may be time-consuming and looks to be complicated, it‘s not! If you have any mechanical ability this can be really achieved and so, will save you couple thousand dollars in replacing the air suspension. One air shock from the dealer is $450. Of course you can convert to standard shocks that are on the market. But this takes away from that great ride that only air suspension can give you! And that makes a XT6 the best! Hope this helps?
