I found the leak. It had two of them in the hose that comes off the compressor and goes to the restrictor coupler. The fitting at the compressor had a leak (bad O-rings) and the hose had a wear hole in it. see pictures below.
That part was hard to find because of it being discontinued. Luckily I found on in Georgia at Friesen Chevrolet
Old part # 22093074
New part # 12367287 also discontinued now
I received my Monroe Sensatrac struts today from Rockauto.com. They had the cheapest price I could find on them at 67.89 each front and rear, same cost.
Question about the compressor operation. It runs but only for a few seconds and then stops for a minute or two then runs again for a few seconds, it keeps repeating this. If the system is empty should it run until it'* full? Or is it on a timed cycle or something. I just can't see how it can fill the system that fast with the leak it has.
