Guys, the EAS my 99 RR HSE is acting up. The front air spring on the pass side deflates overnight. At first the collet on the top of the air spring had some bubbles, tried to fix it and made the problem worse. Then I cut of a piece of the tubing and lubed it up with Vaseline. Worked perfectly and not more air leak or bubbles.

I then suspected that the rubber bellows were cracked and leaking some where but that is not the case the bellows still look very good.

When I go from access height to highway height it is okay then when I go from highway height to normal ride height you can hear hissing but once it settles it is happy in normal height and from normal height to the highest selectable setting it goes up fine.

So how do I fix the hissing front pass air spring when it goes from highway height to normal height?

i would assume an air leak from the air springs while going from one height to another means a leak within the bellows thus the only way to fix is replace the bellows.

a leak from the collet when going from one height to another would be new o-rings or air pipe

new airsprings, there's a crack that only opens up at certain positions, as you drive and it flexes the crack will open/close...

that makes most sense, because the bellows look like they are still pretty new with zero cracks.
