springs hold a car up, not shocks. they are probably worn out from age. get a bid for this repair from a shop.

Springs wear out but the good news is the springs are very inexpensive and you can replace them yourself in your driveway with a jack and simple hand tools.

I just went through this problem on my 97 PA. One of the biggest issues here is the OEM pump for the auto leveling feature, located under the right rear fender behind the wheel, has an inlet filter in the frame rail right by the pump which alows water salt and dirt to enter the pump module. The end result is the valve seats in the pump module corrode and leak causing the pump to run excessively and some times burn out. There is a pump module rebuilder online ( and Autozone sells the shocks. Troubleshoot first. I would explain more but I am only alowed so many characters.
