Default Ride Height Sensor Malfunction??

As i have posted before, i have a 1999 bonneville SSEi with a butt that sticks too far in the air. Found that all the vaccuum hose to the compressor was rotten. Fell apart when i touched it. I have replaced it and checked the lines to the struts but still havent gotten her to drop her rear end. Is there anything i am missing? maybe ride height sensor or purge valve.... Ideas?

If she'* sticking her butt in the air, good chance that she'* in heat, if she were dragging it on the ground, she may have worms. Sorry, wrong pet.

I'm not sure how the system works, but you need to locate the control arm that senses the weight of the car. Disconnect the arm, turn car on and move it up and down a few times to see if anything happens.
