Default Air shocks rear not inflating

Have a 2004 Armada. Air shocks real are not inflating. Mechanic tried to check it but says needs machine which can read codes of Nissan.

Not sure if air pump is shot or shocks or both or neither.

I heard Nissan had problem with these shocks. Is there a service bulletin on this. Does anyone know?

Where is upper mounting for the rear air shock located? Can I get to it from inside the vehicle?

Thanks NISRJZ

Do you hear the compressor running? It is common for the compressor to fail.

agree with MPE235. The compressor is common to fail, actually rust out due to the location.

Default nissan air shocks rear reply

Okay, thanks guys. I'll have the compressor checked out. I agree the location of the compressor is sort of dumb. They should have encased it in plastic shrouding or something.

Anybody aware of recall on the shocks themselves and how long do they usually last....the air shock itself?

Assume compressor failed. Does this mean shocks are shot also? Did compressor fail trying to inflate leaking shock perhaps?

How expensive to replace?

Can I put a regular rear shock in, instead, and can I purchase them from Nissan?

Please respond. Thanks.

NO Response to my question. Are there regular shocks which can be purchased to replace these bothersome air shocks on the rear of my Armada?
I don't need air shocks. Can Nissan supply a regular shock for the rear wheels?

Is anybody out there in Nissan Land able to answer this or refer me to a shock manufacturer who can help me? 44 Guy

You should be able to swap the air shocks out with regular shocks without any problems. I would just get a good set of aftermarket shocks. The oem ones are usually pretty expensive.
