passenger side of manifold, before the catalytic converter. this system may have more than one on the frontside of the cat.

The air pump is located in front of the radiator reservoir on the passenger's side - with the power steering
reservoir between the two.
The air ride is turned on in the truck. The panel in located on the opposite side from the gas tank input (inside the trunk) behind a door. It should be marked on the door.
Make sure the air ride is enabled. turn the ignition key on, You don't need to start the vehicle. After about 5 seconds the air compressor should engage. You don't always hear it when it's running well. Since the engine is off, you should be able to hear any leaks in the air system.
Hole/crack is air spring
Hole or broken air line or coupling
Failed air compressor
The rear suspension should use the same air system. If the pump is 'out' then the rear will also fail to adjust, But since it is on a separate air-line and valve system, it will continue to operate when the front has air leaks. And vise versa.
Two suspension systems - Front/Rear
Four air springs - One for each wheel
Another possible problem:
Your front wheels have a censor to indicate the height of the vehicle from the ground (basically). If this come unclipped, your system will think It's too high and will not add air to bring it to normal height. This usually happens on ONE side causing the vehicle to 'lean' or seem to. One side will have the wheel up in the wheel well, and the other will be a bit more gap between the wheel and the wheel well, but may seem to be 'low' too. On the side which is lowest, turn the wheel that direction and look on the front of the suspension arm for the sensor. it should be attached top and bottom.
If the clips have failed, there are no replacements available from the dealer, and replacement of the sensor is required.

Threepoints of interest.
Fuel pump ( can you hear it working)
Your crankshaft position sensor ( controls spark) & the
Mass air flow sensor (controls the air / fuel ratio to engine )
crank sensor - fromnt of engine at crank pulley
MAF sensor - 1st sensor on duct exiting the air cleaner
Fuel pump , in fuel tank.

My boyfriend connected the battery up backwards and fried some wires. How do I know which wires are fried? And how much would a new fuse box be?

bank 1 and bank 2 refer to the positioning of the sensor on the car, bank 2 just means the second one, so if you start out at your exhaust manifold and inspect the piping going back, the second O2 senor you find will be the one you need to change, it will likely be around or near the catalitic convertor.
