Sit on the front fender and start to push your body down hard. If you are strong you can do it with your hands. Try to get a steady motion of the car going up and down. When you stop push the car should not bounce back more than once. If it continues to bounce back, more then two times it is time for new shocks. Do this to all four corners or the car. If only one shock is bad in front, replace both sides AS THIS IS A SAFETY HAZARD NOT REPLACING THEM IN PAIRS, DITTO FOR THE BACK.

How to remove air suspension pump?


Replacing your Cadillac DeVille DTS electronic shocks with these reliable non-electronic shocks is a simple installation procedure. Cadillac air suspension fails because of rubber dry rotting, and then leaking. Your air suspension compressor will eventually fail because of this. Cadillac shocks in the front fail because of the seals in the Cadillac shock wearing down over time. They eventually leak, losing its dampening ability needed for a safe and smooth ride. Try cadillac dealership for a little more info.

My 1999 cadillac deville air suspension not working


Check in this order: Is the compressor starting when you turn the car on? If not: is the fuse burnt, broken wires? If not: Is the linkage that connects the frame to the left rear shock broken or seized? (more wires to check here). If the compressor runs and the linkage is functional, spray some windex (or soapy solution) on the rubbers of the rear shocks and around the hoses to see if air is bubbling out. If so, this is where the problem is. Many aftermarket shocks/struts are available (check ebay) online for as little as $ 150.00 each, and $ 175.00 for the compressor.

My cadillac is raise up in the back very high whats the problem its a 1999 and i still hear the air shock


Check to see if the lever is connected to the rear suspension still. Look for a small rod disconnected. If not remove the rod and move it to lower the car.
