    Need some help - air spring replacement

    My ‘03 was sagging when it sat, but the compressor ran even I turned it on and it raised up the suspension like it should. I ordered a set of replacement air springs and just installed them. Replaced the o-rings for the solenoids as well. Now when I turn the car on and turn on the air suspension, I get the compressor to run for awhile but it won’t come up to proper height. I felt the LR spring as it was filling and it had pressure. Then the compressor stopped and I heard a little “whoosh” - no more pressure in the spring. Any ideas? I double checked that the solenoid is still in the spring.

    is it safe to run the air suspension with the rear raised up? It’s hard to tell what’s going on

    Figured it out.. solenoids weren’t fully seated. It’s always something stupid ��

    Glad to read that it was a non costly solution there.
