defected air bags return them it happen to me and get regular coil you get a smooth ride plus it cheaper. If you do install the coil the bag light will be turn on don't worried.


might be the wiring. Have a professional install the next one to make sure you don't have any more issues.


You may have left the height sensor un-hooked. Replacing air suspension with springs will not give a smoother ride, different yes, but smoother no.

I'm going to check the height sensor the ride felt the same as when the bags were busted even though the rear was up.there no need for me to buy springs when I brought two air bags off eBay for $80.00 with a 2year warranty I prefer the air ride


Make sure you turn off the air suspension before lifting the rear of the vehicle.
