There are air pump lines connected to the shaft of the rear wheels. If you look under the wheel hub you'll see the air line attatched to the "air shock" cylinder. My air ride is also broken and I just pulled the line off carefully because the car will then fall quickly. I just leave it pulled off and let the normal shocks do their work. You might hear the pump run a little more often but its better than having rock hard rear shocks.

Air supension stays too high


There could be a couple of problems, first and easiest is the rear height sensor became disconnected from its mount. This is common because the sponsor clips on by a kinda weak spring and can be easily disconnected.also where the sensor mounts is a small round metal ball that screws onto frame and rear suspension, the balls after time wear to the point that the sensor spring cannot hold on.there's also an adjustment on the lower mount, if you move it up the vehicle will lower....then you could have a concern with the air compressor vent not allowing it to vent down to ride height. Or the vent solenoid on top of each bag stuck also not allowing it to vent..to ck it yourself, go for a short ride around the block and when you come back park on a level surface, shut off car, exit and close door....listen for an auditable click in the rear, and front left corner of car and watch the distance between rite and wheel lip, see if it drops. If it does I would be leaning towards the simple adjustment...also check thr front ride height on level surface, if you have a suspension problem on 1side of the car and it sits lower,it will throw off rear ride height. ...

Air ride system


Usually it's above the rear axle(s). Follow the air lines from the rear shocks and you'll find it.

My 2000 Expedition Eddie Bauer gets lower in the rear after the truck is parked and the engine is off. When I start the engine and all doors are closed it begins to level out in the rear. What is the...


This is normal operation for this vehicle, the air in the air ride suspension system is designed to do this. After the vehicle sits, the air ride suspension will slowly release the pressure in the system until the vehicle is started again, and the air ride will level itself out again.

Hope this helps...

What happens if the air suspension switch is turned off


If nothing is leaking the air suspension will stay in its current position. The switch is primarily used when your vehicle is service on a non drive ion rack. Failure to turn off the air ride before raising the vehicle will cause the air ride to vent. When the vehicle is lowered the rear of the vehicle will be in the fully lowered position.

Is it possible to lower the rear ride height on an 03 envoy xl by moving the air ride accuators?


If you can lower the actuators without damaging them, it should work. The ride height should drop the same amount that the actuators are lowered. Don't go too low or you will bottom out the air shocks.

I have a 1993 lincoln mark viii trying to manually add air to rear air bags i have installed the hose kit but they wont accept air how to fix


Don't bother. Check with srtutmasters or other alternatives. If the car was made in 93, all bags will be leaking and eventually the compressor cant keep up and fails. even your local lincoln dealer will not be able to diagnose the problems with their "computers." You can get lifetime struts and spring, in your case just springs for the rear, lincoln shocks still work. Put new struts and springs in the front. The only difference is the car will not lower itself at 60 mph or higher. the ride is the same.

Air shocks not working on rear of my expedition


Your right, could be a fuse, but it might also be the air ride linkage thats connected to the air ride motor broken or fallen off either the motor itself or fallen/broken off the rear axle. go to the rear underside of the truck and inspect this area to see if the linkage is still intacked. it could also be a worn/bad air pump.

Stuck in high position


On this model vehicle the rear shockers should have air bags to keep car at normal ride height, when load changes.
The air bag can sometimes become caught between inner and outer tubes of shocker when car is raised and lowered quickly.
You will need to jack car up from tow hitch or frame to lower rear axle, this will unfold air bag, slowly lower car, with ignition on, this will make sure air compressor is filling air bags as they take the load.
Hope this is helpful, MMP

1992 toranado tofeo rear


it sounds like there is a problem with the rear air bags. the air bags are there to help give you a softer ride.
3 spots i would check are the air bags themselves, the air pump located under the hood, or a proprtioning valve
