didn't say so in manual. looked under changing flat tire


i know there use to be a switch in trunk to turn off. i was familiar with this from towing cars years ago. nothing found though.


It may take a little while to pump back up.


the ride height is too high in rear, but there doesn't seem to be air in the shocks. i'm perplexed, but i appreciate you chatting with me. thanks alot.

sorry I couldnt be of more help. I just dont know all that much about them.

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??
