I just replaced the front...
I just replaced the front right air shock on my 2004 XJ8 Jag and now the entire car dropped. The compressor will not come on. I took it off and applied direct current and it worked. I check all fuses related to air suspension and checked for leaks. It seems as if the air compressor is not getting power, any suggestions?

Doc. Jaguar :

Make sure you have no leaks and check to make sure that there is no water or corrosion on the reservoir/valve block in the trunk under the spare tire. Also make sure the height sensor bracket(s) are not bent in the front. This causes a lot of issues as well. Start with the height sensor brackets. You may only have one on the drivers side. some years had a left and right and others only had one on the drivers side.
