2004 Ford Expedition Q&A

2004 Ford Expedition Question: Does a rear Shock/Airbag have to be sealed in any way?

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. -
