We have a 2007 LTZ Suburban that we have owned since 2009 and we are now on our third compressor and have replaced both air ride shocks? Why does this compressor keep burning out?

The main reason a Compressor Fails is because there is a Leak in the Air Suspension System Causing the Compressor to Overwork and "Burn Out". The Most Common cause for a leak in the system is an old leaky Air Spring Bag and it is recommend that in order to maintain your Air Suspension System in optimal condition you should install new Air Spring Bags as well.

Top has the correct answer unless there is a small leak in some of the lines going to the air bags or a lose or bad connection in the lines. My response was that the compressor probably was made outside the USA.
