It could be that the linkage to the ride height control box is bent. In the older Cadillacs, there was a Schrader valve on the compressor to bleed air. The height control box would bleed air to lower the rear. -- If there is no air in the rear shocks air line, I don't know what is holding it up.

i did check linkage. all seems ok, not bent. i didn't think possible, but could i have hyper extended the shocks??
