The problem that Im having is I think the Air ride is wearing out, the rear end bounces around a lot and the air compressor runs a lot. What Im looking for is where can I find replacement air shocks (?) for the rear end? Many people have told me that it is very costly to do any work on the air ride and I have put it off because of the cost. Does anyone have any experience with the air ride on this model and if so can you recommend a place to get the shocks.

On another note Ive had problems with the Climate control unit, it seemed to work for a while and them it stopped turning the air compressor on. What would happen is the temp* would flash for about 2 minutes when starting the car, the heat would work but the AC was a no go. The fix that I found was to disconnect the battery for about 5 minutes and then reconnect. After that everything works again, until it goes below 50 degrees F and it starts all over again. I can get it to work its just a little inconvenient.

Welcome to AF, only factory rear air shocks will connect to the exisiting lines, you could get am ones and run an air fill line to a spot under the bumper for manual fill, or I think they make compression unions to join the part of the line that goes to the pump to a section of line that will fit your am shocks, that way the level ride should still work. Is your outside temp reading on the comfort control panel reading accurately?

Yes, the outside temp is accurate, with a degree or to with the local radio station.
