Hi Im David, thanks for visiting the site, is the vehicle sitting lower than usual in the rear?

No

normally if its bouncy in the rear with air suspension, the bags have leaks. have you noticed the compressor running more than normal?

Customer reply replied 2 months ago
Not at all

ok, I will opt out and let another tech help out. there is no reason it should be more bouncy other than the airbags leaking. good luck

The vehicle rides very rough in the rear. It is like the suspension is not reacting to bumps in the road. I describe it as bouncy. It is an ESV. Very long.

It sound like one of the rear shocks has seized. To check this you need to bounce the rear of the vehicle. Get someone to watch the tires. Stand on the rear bumper and bounce with all of your weight on one side then the other side. Bounce it hard. The tire should stay on the ground. If the tire seems to be hopping off the ground the that shock is the problem. Check both sides
