Angry 1977 6.9 with suspension issues

Please help

Car goes up and down at all four tires when the switch is pulled however the back is bouncy as heck. No leaks. Where do I start since this car is in great shape and I love to drive it but cannot afford a mercedes shop.

Check the accumulator spheres. Having said that, I don't know how to check them. Maybe replace them and hope that does it

Exclamation

The 6.9 has 5 suspension accumulators! You will need to start by replacing the ones in the rear where the problem exhists!
