I have an 04 Escalade (61k miles) with recently replaced

Customer Question

Hi Pearl. I have an 04 Escalade (61k miles) with recently replaced rear air suspension shocks and the original compressor system. The air ride compressor continually runs as if the new Arnott AS-2708 shocks are not holding air OR the air is not getting to the shocks. Trying to understand a good troubleshooting procedure to isolate the issue.
JA: How has the ride been lately? Have you noticed any fluid under the car?
Customer: Rides fine and no fluid
JA: What is the make/model of your car?
Customer: 04 Escalade base 5.3
JA: Are you fixing your Escalade yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Like I stated in the first paragraph, I replaced the air ride suspension shocks with Arnott AS-2708s
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: Any time there is a load/weight put on the vehicle the air ride compressor keeps running. Looking for a troubleshooting procedure to isolate the fault/part.

Hey Moose,
Hope you're doing well today!
What are your thoughts on how to fix my constant battle with the rear air ride suspension on this 04 Escalade?
Thanks, Brad
