My 1999 Deville is bottoming out when I hit bad bumps, go over speed bumps, or up and down driveways. Forget about it if people are in my back seat! Wow! When traveling at reasonable speeds, my car also seems to be bouncing from left to right.
My mechanic said my air bags in the rear are shot. The compressor keeps running because the air bags don't fill. He is afraid to repair the rear air brakes thinking that the compressor will go soon because of it constantly running and he says then I would have a major expense on my hands.
He suggests buying a conversion kit and installing standard shocks on my rear and doing away with air shocks. What do you think? Will any mechanic do this? Is there a particular kit(manufacturer) that you would recommend if you think this is a good idea. Thank you.
