Replacing a broken air spring may require the help of a mechanic, but you can cut down your expenses by simply installing it yourself.
1: Parking your car on a level surface then using the floor jack to lift it up. Place the jack stands underneath the vehicle for support.
2: Remove the wheels by detaching its lug nuts one by one. Use a wrench for this procedure.
3: Deflate the air spring by opening the air mouth on the top.
4: Detach the set of fasteners that secure the air spring in place. You can generally find these bolts on the control arm and under the hood. Keep in mind that the set of procedures for removing an air spring vary for each car, so make it a point to consult your owner's manual to see exactly how yours is removed.
5: Remove the old air spring away from the shock carefully. If needed, use a spring compressor to make the remove easier. You may reuse the O rings connecting the air spring to the shock.
6: Put the new air spring on the place where you removed the old one.
7: Reconnect it to the shock using the O rings you removed earlier. Make sure you apply lubricant on them before putting them back.
8: Reattach all the components that you removed. Recheck if there are no missing bolts, nuts and fittings.
