you have to disconect the factory lines to the compressor and and run new airlines to a shrader valve so you can air it up manualy....

or you could use a fire stone stone air shock controller kit to controll them like air bags

You can tap in to the onboard compressor and raise the back when ever you want with the flip of a swicth . It will be a little bit slow and the air will bleed out of the shocks so you might have to keep adding air in it every 30-45 minutes.Just find the power wire going to the compressor run it to the 12volt source add a switch and a fuse , and that pretty much puts you in controll of your factory air ride .I did it my El-Dorado and it worked for me .

Just make sure you dont get a small switch get a nice size one that can handle some amps or else that switch will heat up . and dont forget the fuse .

there is a lever from the body 2 one of the rear control arms you mess with it will raise the back end

hey i got a 95 deville, i'm interested in the same deal... i like the idea of hittin a toggle switch to turn the compressor on, but thats the up part.. what about the down part? like some sort of release valve.. sorry i don't know the terminology

i figure it's got the air susp and i dont want to 3 wheel or jump..

and one big question i had, does any1 know if it has air susp in the front??

im not a 100% sure but i think rear only , and as far as letting it down it comes down on its own after 1/2 hour or so i dont know maybe you can rig up some release valve but i never tried doing that .
