OK, I just spent the entire day replacing a self leveling rear shock that had not been touched in 9yrs. I put everything back together and now the airbag will not re-inflate. Before the shock was blown and the airbag inflated no problem. I can hear air being supplied to the LR bag but it doesn't inflate and even after letting the car run for over a half hour I still get nothing. I even went as far as to remove the compressor solenoid under the hood and create a jumper wire to keep the compressor running none stop for roughly 10 mins and nothing. I'm exhausted and any help from yall would be greatly appreciated. I think I've covered everything but if you have any questions let me know and i'll answer them as quickly as possible. Thank you in advance

    Thank you for the reply. If there is a bad seal what would I have to do to seal it properly? This is my first time messing with airbags. Any instructions or website diagrams would assist me a great deal.
