Putting new rear shocks on 98 lesabre..going to use non-air

Customer Question

putting new rear shocks on 98 lesabre..going to use non-air (hydraulic?) instead.. when I unplug that little air compressor line that plugs in at the top of the existing shock, will this cause the air compressor to run all the time or cause other problem?

Yes, it will make the compressor come on but all you have to do is disconnect the wire connector at the compressor and you wont have any trouble :-)
