finding parts for it is a big pain and the parts are expensive, thats why most convert to manual fill setup

I have an issue with the pump running a-lot! There were new shocks put in and a new sensor. Can you give me any tips?

Good way to find the leak is spray around all the connections with dish soap and water in a spray bottle. i will bubble up were the air is leaking out

Are the connections I need to soap up fairly obvious? Where is the pump in relation to the shocks and is it easy to figure out once I am under there?

on my bonnie it is. its inside/under pass side fender on mine. just soak down any place where the tube make a connection and look for bubbles, where it goes to struts, where it splits, compressor, etc.
