Yes flyballdog....the compressor come on after about 30 or more seconds when the car is on..it runs for about 3-5 seconds then shuts off..its a alil buzzing sound I hear...if I was to push down on my rear how many times should it bounce b4 leveling? I get 2-3 bounces when parked but when driving at times I get 3-4 sometimes 4-5 depending on the dip n the road and how fast I'm driving..I don't know if this is normal..is there anyway way I can look under the car to see if the bags are popped or anything?

Mine doesn't bounce when running and I push on it, and if I'm driving and go through a dip I only get one bounce maybe. Your compressor doesn't seem to be the problem, it seems to be the actual shock part. The compressor is only used for load leveling.

Well that'* a blessing if it is just the shocks....they don't cost too too much I'm just worried about how much the labor will cost...I do believe when I first got my car it was the same as urs..
