After a leak is repaired on the hydraulic systems, you usually have to jump start the system by disconnecting the arm that goes to the leveling valve and moving it in the loaded position with the engine running on a drive on lift. Watch the rear until it raises and reconnect in the original spot. IF this doesn't work, check the accumulators.
