I had a very similar problem, ended up removing the rear suspension rubber air springs , covering them with soapy water and then partly inflating them with a DIY compressor, was easy to see rubber air springs had started to perrish and leak in the 1/2 way down. I was convinced it was not the air springs as often the car would not sag for a day or two.- fitted new air springs ( agents only,as far as i know ) and X5 is 100% Towed a heavy trailer last weekend and perfect. ( i fitted them myself jack the car up and should take you about 3 hours.) good luck

It is important that you make sure the compressor is disconnected and that there is no power going to the suspension control module. (This is something that the mechanic who did the spring conversion for you should have done but CHECK FOR YOURSELF.)

Once you have made sure that the compressor is disconnected and the leveling system computer has been disabled, SIMPLY REMOVE THE LIGHT BULB.

Changing rear suspention


the strut/spring is one assembly that comes out as one unit.
The 1989 XJ6s'(USA) had self leveling hydraulic suspension. Is your
new strut correct or has your car been retrofitted to conventional shocks?
