how low has the car gotten that you noticed and was a certain axle low? the front or rear axles?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
When I pulled over the front was low. Still over the tires and not as low as it gets after it is turned off for a while. It was the front. The warning would come on when I was driving and then go off.

Expert:  Lou P. master tech replied 2 months ago.

ok so those are 2 different issues, just a coincidence.

Expert:  Lou P. master tech replied 2 months ago.

for the brake warning can you send me a picture of the warning so i can tell you what may be the issue?

Expert:  Lou P. master tech replied 2 months ago.

also for the suspension,. do you hear the compressor come on when the car is first started?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
I am currently at work and away from the car so I cant send a pic. I do hear the compressor come on and the car does raise.
Expert:  Lou P. master tech replied 2 months ago.

OK, so far so good, for the picture you can send it to me when you get the chance

so you have a leaking air strut. or a failing compressor if the front is lowering.

so you will need to get the air shocks replaced and have the compressor tested to make sure it is putting out correct pressure.
