    Yes you can change to springs. These vehicles use either a coil spring suspension or an air suspension configuration that utilizes two air springs. On vehicles equipped with the air springs, two separate height sensors control the air springs, one for the left spring and one for the right spring. Hope this helps

    We are having the exact same problem! Compressor went out, it is cheaper to convert it to springs. So that's what we're doing with our rainier if we can figure out how to do it!
