shimmy under there with a squirt bottle of soapy water and squirt all connections---the hoses principally, but rubber gets old and cracky...will sniff out a repalcement hoses and air springs for you----sus it out with a spray bottle of soapy water so we can pinpoint what to replace...okay?~

I know it takes a while for the system to refill the air bag system. If the front will not refill after about 15 minutes then there is a major leak in the front air supply source, possible a broken line, stuck pressure valve in one of the air bags, a leaking air bag. if it is a bag that is the problem they are not cheap. Might try a wrecking yard for a good used one.

tennishoes is right its not cheap to fix usually. most people convert it over to coil spring set up and not have to worry about it any more. Being a 96 you will be patching it up alot and a used one of the same age may not be the best bet it will give problems also.
