no i don't want to pay any more fees

O.k. no problem,I apologize but that would be the only way I could do a text or phone call chat.

Does this cord have wires in it and if so what color are these wires?Let me know so I can check it to see what it is for.

Thanks Pete

no wires, its a black rubber piece that connects/slides onto a pin on a metal bracket that looks to be connected to the suspension system somehow

O.k.,looking at your suspension set up now will post back here shortly.

ok

Thanks.They should be able to help and then I can see the picture which will make things much easier.

The connected One is on the passenger side and the disconnected one is on the driver side, which is the side that is sitting low

O.k.,perfect glad that worked out.

Those are level sensors.The disconnected sensor is causing this issue.Can you reconnect it then start the vehicle.You should be able to move the arm on the sensor to reconnect it.If it connects and falls off then inspect to see if the sensor arm ball is worn with the sensor needing replaced or if the arm itself is worn needing replaced.Once this is reconnected it will level out again.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service,your 5 star rating is appreciated ( should be a link to click on here or above).You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.
