Passanger side goes down when parked and air compressor runs all the time.
@ 130k miles, every morning the driver side rear was sitting low. Starting car fixed it. 3k miles later, dash light "Check Air Suspension" would be on at start, until car was level. Leaky air bag. Lincoln estimate was $900 for repair, $700 for replace with springs. Caught it early, the compressor did not need replacing. Bought air bags & dryer rebuild kit on eBay. Works great. I recommend a new dryer, the rebuild kit takes too much time. Still need new shocks.
retrofitted with regular struts
pump ran all the time ,now it doesn'nt
The ais suspension light is on, the rear is sagging, and I can't afford a big repair.
back end of car almost sitting on pavement. Visited dealer and it was fixed
Car back end sags to the ground overnight. Now won't reinflate even when running.
