The compressor should be located near the right rear wheel well. There is an air dryer on it as well as the level control lines. Disconnect the lines at the compressor and use a syringe and inject a liberal amount of isopropyl alcohol into all the lines. Close the system and go to the further point on each line and crack them open, one at time; while the compressor is running to discharge the alcohol. You can do the same blow down if you have an air compressor. After all the lines have been blown down, tighten all your fittings and change the air dryer.

This is a picture of the pump on a 97. It'* located behind the passenger side rear tire. If you look under the fender you should see it.
