My rear air shocks appear fine but the left side won't pump up as far as the right side. Does this mean they will need to be replaced?

Check to see if one of the lines is pinched. Sometimes, if you over tighten the flare nuts that hold the lines on, it will collapse the line under the "O" ring.

Everything appears to be fine. I disconnected the air line at the shock and the rearend dropped. Then I put air back in the line and only the right side raised to the proper height but the left side only a little. I couldn't hear any air leaks. ??? I would hate to replace the shocks if they aren't bad, I could use the money elsewhere.

Do they have separate air inlets? This could be the "problem", but they actually should be plumbed separately to keep the body from leaning too much in corners.
