2001 GMC Yukon: suspension..disconnect..air compressor hooked

Resolved Question:

I have a 2001 GMC Yukon with the Autoride suspension. The front shocks are done. What happens if I disconnect the electrical connection to these shocks, replace with conventional shocks, and leave the air compressor hooked up to pressurize the rear?

Hello,most likely what will happen as I have seen some customers do this before is the ABS or Ride light will stay on all the time but the rears should operate normally with lifting and releasing air pressures.I have seen some customers who have replaced these shockls with conventional shocks before and had no problems.I hope this helped,if you need anything else let me know,Thanks Pete
