I just replaced my air ride, the struts, and it rides just as ruff as before like I didnt do anything. How do I adjust the compressor or ride height to make it ride smoother?

Hi sndurkin,

Sorry for the delay in answering and thank you for the donation.

When struts are replaced, you need to reset the Rear Integration Module (RIM) A scan tool is required to do the resetting.

Do you have issues with height difference with the front and rear?

No I do not have a height difference in the front and rear. My car just rides really bad like I did not even replace the struts. So there is no way to fix it without a scanner tool?

A scanner would be required to reset the RIM.

Here are the procedures.

Rear Integration Module (RIM) Programming
Prior to replacing RIM, note vehicle personalization features. To set or change features, install scan tool. Turn ignition switch to ON position, with engine off. Under CHASSIS MAIN MENU, select Rear Integration Module (RIM). Under RIM Main Menu, select RECALIBRATION. Follow scan tool on screen instructions to recalibrate automatic level control. Perform vehicle personalization to reset owner's desired personalization settings.
