Default so, I was at the junkyard today....

Found 2 LeSabres, and one SSE.

2 have the rear air suspension. I need to know if its a good idea to take the compressor??? I'd like to have the air suspension personally, but is it a good idea to take the compressor? I mean, what are the chances of it being siezed up? Theres 2 of them. Also, was the air avalible for the fronts? I didn't check that, but will. Is there anything else I should take while taking the compressor out?

Found SSE taillights. Unfortunatly, they were damaged. So, I could not take them.. :( For you guys.)

I found a grille for my Buick. Good shape. (mine is damaged.)

I will be going back tommorrow, or whenever I get the chance. Anything else of value I should take, if the cars have em?

I would go ahead with the compressor for the auto-level system. And AFAIK, the system only worked on the back struts.

No, it was all rotted out. Whomever had it, they got their moneys worth out of it. I'd have definitly bought the tailights if they were in good shape, for you guys, of course.

Havent taken anything off yet, I have to get a job, but I should get the Buick grille before it gets smashed up, or taken. Mine'* right broke in half. :(

BTW, I was thinking of a 95 and newer SC 3800 to put in it. But that is another project for next summer. I'd definitly do it though, the 3800 in my Buick is just not adequate enough for me sometimes!

Only the rear struts had ELC.

They were used to level the ride. The only available feature for front struts was CCR.

Wrecker compressors ususally run about $100 each from Pontiacs and Caddy'*.

On the SC 3800, you mean 94/95, or 96 and newer?
