Default Now a suspension problem HELP guru'* Please

Ok I noticed the last 2 days the Park Ave has been riding rouger and hitting bumps harder. Today I took it in the garage and jacked under the trailer hitch to jack the body but leave the tires on the floor.

Well.. the passengers side tire started coming off the floor right away but the drivers side stayed on the floor until the body on that side was quite high in the air.

It apperas that the shock on the passengers side is frozen in place. When you put it on the ground and have someone bounce on the rear on that side there is a slight movement in the spring but the shch doesn't move.


Do the same on the drivers side and the shock and spring go up and down a few inches. Is this a frzen shock ?? I have NEVER heard of this or is it something broken and wedged in the suspension ? Everything looks good except that air shock not moving.

If it is the shock where is the best place to buy them and how hard is it to change ?

I also need a center cap for the chrome rims any clues on where to get a cheap replacement ??

Thanks alot !

Done, whacha think on the shock ? I can't believe something would be that ruined that it would stop that side of the car from going up or down, ever hear of that ??

I think I answered my own question. I jacked up that side and removed the 2 lower bolts from the shock and the shock IS frozen solid !! I have never seen this before . How much are new air shocks ??

Where is the best place to get them ??

Any big deal changing them ??

Thanks fellas
