Air Suspension

Hello:

Today, I parked my SUV, went into the office and came out an hour later. My air suspension systerm was "no loger." The body is siting on the frame. The compressor came on a few times, however the expedition did not raise up like it should.


Has anyone had any problems with the air suspension and, if so, what did you do about it. Is it something that I can fix myself, or should I take it to the dealer?

Thanks!

John

Re: Air Suspension

Thank you for the response.

Because it is a recall, will the dealership pay for it or will it come out of my pocket.

Thanks for the help.

P.S. If they will not pay for it, what would you recommend I start with. The compressor is working....what does the drier do?
