    I did a search for post in this forum, but, could not find the answer to my needs. I have a 2000 Yukon XL 2WD with autoride. I like the autoride/self-leveling suspension and need to fix the leaks. I can hear the leak, but, I have not been able to isolate it. I am willing to buy and replace any parts that it may need. My compressor is working overtime trying to keep the suspension level. Help!!!!!

    I'm not aware of any common place, or problem where these leak more than any other. You are going to have to isolate the leak by following the sound. You may get lucky & it'll just be a line that needs tightening. Best to do it now before the compressor goes bellyup from overheating from trying to keep up with it.

    Here's how I find this kind of leak or other noises like this. I use a 3 foot piece of garden hose, hold one end to my ear and run the other end along suspect lines & fittings. Somewhat like a stethoscope with an extension. You should find the leak in short order.

    Good luck, I hope it's not an expensive part.

    I found that the airbag on one of the shocks was leaking. I replaced them with remanufactured rear air shocks from Arnott. Thanks
