Yes, and you don't. With the Electronic Leveling System, as Cadillac called it, there's a small electric air compressor under the hood, air lines going to the back of the car, a height sensor at the rear axle, and "Superlift" air shocks at the rear. The system was designed to be fully automatic. A green "Level Ride" light on the dash comes on whenever the air compressor comes on to let you know that the car is leveling. As years went by, most people disabled the system and just put regular air shocks on the back with a tire type air valve on the underside of the back bumper to add or remove air as needed. HTH. -Jim
