Cadillac Deville: I have a 02 deville I just put rear shocks

Customer Question

Hi I have a 02 deville I just put rear shocks on and now the ride is stiff

Is the suspension link on the lower control arm disconnected? That would cause the air ride suspension to pump up and make the shocks hard as a rock.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Could have came off when I did the struts
Expert:  Jerry Newton replied 1 year ago.
I think that's likely. It's the first thing I would check.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Would I see it if I look under the car or pull off the tire and is it on the left side or the right side
Expert:  Jerry Newton replied 1 year ago.
Should be only on the left side, and you should be able to look under the car and see it. No need to pull off wheel.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I didn't see anything disconnected
Expert:  Jerry Newton replied 1 year ago.
Can you see the link, and where it connects?
