Windom51977, Sounds like you have very weak rear springs. You dont state what make or year the vehicle is but I am going to assume that it is an older model. You need to have the rear springs and shocks replaced. The springs will bring the vehicle back to its proper ride height and the shocks will keep the rear end from bouncing all over the place. You may have struts in the rear and if so then these will have to be replaced as a whole unit. After this is done have the front end checked to see if the ride height is in specs. You nay need to have some work done here as well. Good luck with this.

SOURCE: Rear end is sagging aaallloootttt!

What has probably happened is you got a hole or cracks in your airbag. Dealerships and mechanics typically diagnoses it as the compressor but that is only to keep you coming back and wasting more money on something that will never truly be fixed. Both the airbag and the compressor are the problem. The compressor has to work extra hard because it is like blowing up a balloon with a hole in it. Therefor the airbag will kill the compressor. I would recommend going to strutmasters.com and taking a look at the conversion kits. these convert you from the airbag to a powder coated American made steel coil spring that is guaranteed to last the life of the car. This is a PERMANENT fix. I added the link below so you can check it out. http://www.strutmasters.com/oldsmobile-suspension-parts-s/85.htm I hope I was of some help Good Luck!!!

SOURCE: The 1996 Jaguar headliner is sagging in the rear

The problem is that the foam that is glued to the fabric. It becomes crumbly and disintegrates into messy little bits that get into your hair and all over your car's interior. Trying to spray glue, while the headliner is still up there, won't work for long. The foam will keep crumbling and glue won't stick to it. It's sort of like trying to glue some cloth to the ground. No way will it stick.

There is a temporary fix on the do-it-yourself aisles in the automotive weekend warrior stores. It is a product that has a little curly cue, and a clear plastic head. The product is called a "Saggy Stopper". The clear head blends in with your headliner's color. It looks promising for a temporary fix.

SOURCE: 2001 Navigator rear suspension sagging. While

It sounds like one of your air bags could have blown. I would check them first. I would also suggest checking into a replacement non air conversion kit from Strutmasters. I replaced the air system on my 2002 Navigator and saved a lot of time, money and headaches.The lines on my navigator had holes in them and I replaced the compressor twice before I realized it. Very costly. Avoid all the hassle and check out Strutmasters.

Can a faulty drivers door open module cause my 2003 mercury rear air suspension to sag?


Why would you ask that?

Drivers door module has nothing
to do with suspension,only windows

not suspension system

I would replace all four corners with conventional
struts/shocks & disconnect the air system,then
you have something worth having on your car

The air suspention pump is not working


Use a test light to the air suspension pump to see if it is getting current. I assume that the rear end is sagging a bit as far as ride height, due to the pump not working. Also, may try to remove and replace pump, assuming that's the problem, and then when the rear air shocks pump up, make sure there are no leaks after shutting down the vehicle.

Also, make sure that the shut off switch for the suspension isn't flipped to 'off.'

The rear shocks bleed down overnight. This has happened only a few times and when the car is started the rear end rises. The last time the vechile had to be moved an inch or two backwards then forward then...


There is a built in valve for this function in the suspension compressor. If and when this sticks open it will cause the rear end to sag. Its not replaced except with the compressor.
The bags in back can still be leaking under where the the bag rolls up, the car would need to be in the air to see that area.
