Hello Everyone,
Out driving my wife and baby, who were seating in the rear, I noticed that the rear of the car looked alittle low.

Sure enough after returning home the rear has yet to self-level. No items were or are in the truck as we speak. The rear wheelwell looks as if it is resting on the tires. What could possibly be the problem now. It did not look that way before we Left the house.

Any suggestions on what to check would be appreciated. Also what if any in cost is involved in(if any) repair.

Thanks very much in advance.

Have the leveling valve checked for proper operation and if it is ok have the accumulators checked. If you need info on this we have the CD in stock.

I've got fluid leaking from the rear. Hydraulic fluid from the leveling suspension? I left the car in the garage and in the morning awoke to brown fluid. Looks like a leak in the self level. What to do now?

Approx to repair would also be helpful.

Well you could try to fix the self leveling or you could replace it with bilstien sport shocks and sportline or eibach/h&r rear springs. This would most likely be cheaper or about the same price as fixing what you have. I got rid of the self leveling and I like it a lot more. I have a set of new rear bistien sport shocks that Im selling for $140 includeing shipping cod. Let me know if youre interested.
