Regarding the leak in the sytem....
The system will need to be sprayed down with soapy water, thats how i find my leaks on these.
IF there are no leaks in the bags, than one of the valves in the motor/controller is seaping and failing. this unit will have to be replaced if no other leaks are found. just make sure the soapy water is extra concentrated so it will pick up even the most minor leak. I have spent hours looking for leaks in a few of these and never found any. It doesnt take much of a minor leak to start dropping as its a low volume system.
There are air system bypass kits available for these.
Before replacing anything on this system i would look into this and I would highly recommend replacing the airbag with springs as it is 1/2 the cost and very easy to do. it is a complete kit.
IT comes with springs, which go in without any special tools, just release the lower shock bolts and pry the bottoms in, and it comes with a bypass to keep the airsystem light off.
I dont even replace any components anymore as once this system starts failing,every component will follow.
so now i recommend to my customers the spring kit, and they are always more than happy as they find it rides nicer.
IF you need any more info id be happy to help
