no guys its not a convertible. When a buick lucerne (and many other cars) is going speeds of 70 miles per hr or faster the shocks in the back will rise to give a better ride and safer too. well after driving on the hwy yesterday i get home and the back shocks wont go back down. there is no alerts on the dash panel

By the way jeff you have to click on that to see it....as soon as Nikki answers me I might have some ideas,, I finally found it didn't realize it was 2 months old

The air ride suspension system can both inflate and deflate the air shocks. There is a solenoid on the air compressor that opens to lower the suspension. It's used when you get to the hotel and the valet removes the wife's trunk full of luggage.

she's keeping copies, you can keep copies too, is the life of a poor artist, everything is public domain, or it would never be seen -even after my big art show at art asia in Milwaukee, perhaps 6000 people viewed the art, yet no inquiries~

"Wow, there we are again, Tenspeed chiming in with his stupid stuff and no brain type crap and suddenly gets two marks as Helpful" --- Gary, are you saying that once the rear shocks inflate for highway stability. they don't deflate? Do you think people drive around with the tails up until the system leaks enough air to drop it down? That's the "stupid stuff" and "no brain type crap" I said. I said they deflate. Prove me wrong.

My rear air suspension was starting to go. I replaced the shocks with spring. My car is raised high in the back how do I lower it back to normal height. Is it the ride height sensors or the compressor relief valve. I just brought the car about a month ago it drives great just bunpy in the rear. I but new tires and alignment on it
