The air valves are actually for bleeding air out not putting it in , so try changing the oil.use the recommended amount not more
You can buy different oil 2.5w is light up to 10w or 20w for more damping.
If it bottoms ocassionally that is not too bad and means your using all of the fork travel, If it bottoms a lot and hard it may need heavier springs.

Slight trace of oil at the bottom of rear air shock


Hi it could be the seal in the shock. These are air assisted shocks not just air. If the leak is not too bad leave it alone otherwise you may need to replace the whole shock. Regards Jim...

Before my xrm front shock is good when i replace oil its knocking what is the problem?


too much oil after refilling, the hydraulic oil is not compressable but the air in the system is and the shock needs the right amount of both to operate correctly, when the shock is compressed the oil is squeezed through a set of holes internally and is returned to normal by the large spring, if too much oil or too thick an oil is used this will produce the effect of bottoming out half way through the travel

2001 Buick LeSabre Ltd. 128,000 miles. All new front struts and rear air shocks and stabilizer links. Even before that I get a creak (sounds like rubber) from both front sides when I go 15 mph over sp


Sounds like it could possibly be the upper or lower control arm bushings squeaking. There may possibly be a grease fitting on the control arm bushings, if so, have them greased. In fact get a complete grease job from a qualified mechanic. If the squeak stops then you know what is wrong. Then make sure you keep your care properly greased. Usually every time you change your oil or at least twice yearly.

How do I chnage the front and rear shocks in a 2001 4.0


The shocks in the rear just unbolt top and bottom, disconnect the air line and replace them.

Struts are used in the front. You'll need to remove them and then have a spring compressor to change the struts. An alignment check is recommended after the struts are replaced.

My 93 goldwing has no air shock valve for adjusting air pressure.would my bike have oil dampened front shocks a nd how do i service them if they are oil dampened.a freind told me they could be oil...


Actually all shocks are oil dampened - the air pressure just increases the dampening effect of the oil. In all Goldwings the front shocks air pressure is adjustable and supposed to be 6 psi.
If you no longer have the air ports on the shocks then something is very wrong with this bike - the front fork has been modified, the shocks have been replaced with non genuine parts. Have the bike inspected by a Honda certified repair shop immediately.

Fron end bottoming out and hitting front fender


Bad fork seals, allowing loss of fork oil. Missing fork oil due to mischief or missing drain plug. Fork damping mechanism failure. Huge pothole. Too many wheelies. Broken fork spring(s). Severe bike overload and heavy braking. Front end collision. Air shocks low on air.

Any of those things COULD cause the front to bottom out. Probably the most likely is low oil in the forks. Not likely the damping mechanism could have failed but it's possible.

ONE REAR AIR SHOCK IS LEAKING IN MY 2002 PONTIAC BONNEVILLE


you could replace the one shock but do you know why it is leaking oil? Typically unless there was something traumatic to happen to one of the rear shocks, then if one is going you can almost be the other one will go soon. I ended up having too many problems with the air ride suspensions. If you haven't yet, look into conversion kits as something to consider for down the road if nothing else. www.strutmasters.com has a great kit that is made in America and comes with a lifetime warranty. They have a good reputation and track record and can help you save some money and find the permanent solution if anything else goes wrong.
