Default Load Leveling

A while ago, I wrote about how my car seems to have a bullseye on it. Three accidents last year. First some jerk clips me because he can't wait behind the guy letting me out of a parking lot. Then some girl on her cell phone bangs me in back during a rain storm. Then a guy can't wait for me to finish my left turn, and just keeps coming and hits my rear-right quarter panel. Well the front end thing wasn't more than a scrape, and the back end thing didn't seem to do anything. But when they went to repair the quarter panel, they noticed cracks in the rear panel from the inside. So I had them fix all of this stuff. But they were lazy and didn't hook everything up correctly. Now my load leveling system leaks. Of course, I didn't notice until I tried to tow my boat.

Does anyone know where I can find a diagram of the connections for this system?

By the way, thanks for all the responses to the window problems.

Heres some pics of diagrams for you,

This is the compressor with bumper removed for clarity.


This is the exhaust tube routing from the rear shocks to the exhaust filter.


Here is where the exhaust tube fromt the rear shocks connects to the air filter, just behind or to the left is solenoid control pack and underneath is the compressor itself.


If you have to get at the level sensor you have to remove the rear tire, there is a series of linkages and mounting points, if this slips down it would make the car think it was loaded and had to jack up the car to level it.

Thanks Bone. You are a fountain of knowledge! If it ever stops raining here, I'll have a look see. I am betting its the stupid hose or a connector. Just the sort of thing that can get broken or forgotten by a body man doing insurance claim work in a high volume shop. (I don't mean this to be offensive. Just that they also forgot to replace a few trim bits inside the trunk also.)
