AIR RIDE ISSUES?

2003 Cadillac Deville • V8 2WD Automatic • 17,749 miles

I live in Texas and just replaced an engine in a 2003 deville. Had the car's front end jacked up for about 5-6 months. Now when driving the car rides rough and feels like the front end jolts when going over bumps. Any ideas?

Ck. The air ride with 2 people on rear bumper u should feel it turn on and pump up then shut off.

#2 spray soapy water on rear shocks to look for a leak

Concerns with the automatic level control will not cause an issue with the front, as you are describing. The system is only for the rear of the vehicle, and adjusts height in response to loading. Has it been verified that all fasteners in the front have been tightened, and was there an alignment performed after the powertrain was removed?

Alignment was done and recalibrated for steering system. Also rechecked everything to make sure was tight.
