In the arely forum pages, they say to put soap around the connexctor at the top of the shock. Start with the hoses and check them for cracks. The Harley shocks are known for this problem and is usually in the head of the shcok where the connector installs and can be replaced with new air shock parts for the connector to the shock. Hope this helps. TOm

Rear air shocks do not work


there can only be a couple things either the lines going to the shocks have a hole in them and air is leaking out before it can charge the shock or the shocks seals are bad and leaking out there also check the tip where you inflate maybe take the air valve out and see if thats stopping air from reaching the shock!

How do iservice ride control


this is for the Auto Level for the rear axle,in "most cases" the compressor is bad, and one or both rear shocks leak air. What happens is a shock leaks air and the compressor tries to keep it up, but runs so long that it burns up or is worn out from running too much. plan on at least $1000.00. but have it checked out, YMMV

My 2003 lincoln navigator just left garage and now it leans completely to the left


This vehicle has a air ride suspension option which can read the height of the vehicle, when weight is added the suspension will compensate by appling air to the front and rear shocks. When weight reduced it will lower by venting air from the shocks. If the entire vehicle sits low there is a problem with the air compressor circuit (quite often water in the system and freezes causing damage to the compressor). In your case if only one side is low, check the front and rear shocks, the lowest wheel probably has a leaking shock and can't rise.

I just replaced my air compressor on my 2003 Lincoln Navigator. When I turned it on the rear end aired up to the highest it could go and my front never aired up....Help what could be the problem?


check for a leveler adjuster could be stuck or if you are sure that you have front air shocks the line could be leaking hoses cracked or broke or the shock itself could be damaged to check further to find the problem

2003 Pathfinder SE is bouncing


> Does this vehicle have shock absorbers or leaf springs?
It would be either leaf or coil springs; shock absorbers serve to prevent that continued bouncing and these may be simply shot.
The crude way of checking shocks still works somewhat:
- Position yourself on each corner of the vehicle and through repeated pushing down and letting the corner come back up, get some momentum and then let go at the bottom of the cycle.
If the shocks (which may be located within coil springs- McPherson struts) are still effective, the vehicle should rise slightly once and then settle. If they are blown, there will be some continued 'overshoot.'
The leaked fluid can be checked for odor; brake fluid is pretty distinctive while lubricants will smell somewhat like oil or grease. This could be from a shock but most are now gas filled rather than with a type of hydraulic fluid.

Rear air shocks 2003 Buick LeSabre


I'd have them checked first to determine if it is actually the shocks, or possibly just a loose or cracked line, which should be a pretty inexpensive fix. If it turns out to be shocks, weigh it out then.
