long-icon-questionWhy Choose Strutmasters?

Why choose the Conversion Kit over replacing the air suspension system on your 1985-1990 Buick Electra?

When the 1985-1990 Buick Electra's air suspension system goes bad, direct replacement at the dealership is not a realistic repair option. It is very expensive and not practical, considering the vehicle's age. Replacing aftermarket air parts individually is inefficient and may create a new set of problems. Strutmasters' air to non-air suspension conversion kit, made in America, saves Buick Electra owners time, frustration, and money when the original air suspension system fails. The kit comes complete with two pre-assembled coilover struts that can be installed with just two bolts each. The kit is backed by Strutmasters' Lifetime Limited Warranty. Detailed instructions, online installation videos, and technical support from Strutmasters' ASE certified experts are just a few perks that accompany each kit purchase. Lastly, the price of the kit is just a fraction of the costs of repair alternatives. It's no surprise why the majority of Buick Electra owners switch from air to non-air suspension using this coilover conversion kit.

long-icon-xIs Your Suspension Failing?

How do I know if my 1985-1990 Buick Electra Air Suspension is failing?

Early detection of a failed or leaking air suspension system in the 1985-1990 Buick Electra is the key to avoiding suspension total failure. Look for the following red flag indicators that the suspension is going bad before it's too late. A sudden change in dampening is a clear symptom to look for. This may result in a “bouncy” or “rough” feel to the ride. An inability of the Electra to reach and maintain its proper ride height is also a bad sign. A sudden height variance between different sides of the vehicle is a common symptom. There may be one sagging end and one inflated end. There might be a shifting lean from one side to the other. These imbalances will wear out the air compressor if they are not fixed immediately. When suspension failure is advanced a suspension warning light will illuminate on the instrument cluster. At this late stage, an expensive repair or direct replacement is the only solution.

long-icon-gearVehicle Components

What kind of suspension does my 1985-1990 Buick Electra have?

The 1986-1990 Buick LeSabre is built with the following front suspension components:

1986-1990 Buick LeSabre Electronic Struts (x2)- a type of shock absorber; has metal tubing filled with gas-charged hydraulic fluid that is connected to the wheel of a vehicle in order to reduce the effects of vertical travel on a rough surface which controls the bounciness, and therefore comfort, of a vehicle. The Buick Electra’s struts use an electronic signal to stiffen or soften the dampening of the strut.

1986-1990 Buick LeSabre Height Sensors (x2) - a linkage located near each wheel of a vehicle with any electronic suspension that, either mechanically or electronically, constantly measures the height of the vehicle, and reports this information back to the control module so that the computer can identify if changes in height need to be adjusted accordingly. The ride height sensor is a moving part, and like all moving parts, they will eventually wear out.

1986-1990 Buick LeSabre Suspension Control Module- a computer which is responsible for the operations of the electronic suspension system and maintaining the vehicle’s correct ride height.
