82 Aspencade air suspension

Postby kds111 » Wed Nov 17, 2010 12:35 pm



Hello Everyone,

I need help understanding and servicing the air ride suspension on my Aspencade.
The compressor and I believe it is an air dryer are lying on the air cleaner top. The system hold air only for a short time.
There are some hoses not connected along with the guage. The haynes 1100 manual doesn't include this setup.
Does anyone have a schematic and manual on servicing this system, as far as parts mounting and proper connections etc.

You say your hoses arn't connected? Are the loose ends back by the upper shock mounts or down by the rear master cylender under the right hand side cover?

The hoses are connected at the rear shocks on top.
There is a few hoses that are not connected in the false tank.

Have a look at How to service your air compressor dessicant - there are a few pictures of the compressor and its hoses in that. Can you follow the disconnected hoses and see where they go?
