long-icon-questionWhy Choose Strutmasters?

Why choose the Conversion Kit over replacing the air suspension system on your 1985-1990 Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight (98)?

Strutmasters' air to non-air suspension conversion kit saves Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight owners time, frustration, and money when the air suspension system goes bad. Typically, each component of the air ride must function together. When one part stops working, the rest follow suit. This coilover suspension conversion kit eliminates that inconvenient dependency for good. The kit, manufactured in the USA, comes complete with two pre-assembled front struts with Eibach springs and mounts. All necessary hardware comes with the kit and it's a direct replacement- no modifications are needed before it's installed. Customers appreciate the detailed instructions and online installation videos which help them get the kit installed in about one hour per wheel. When further assistance is needed, Strutmasters' ASE certified experts offer technical support over the phone. The quality of the parts is guaranteed by Strutmasters' Lifetime Limited Warranty. But perhaps the most appealing part of the kit is the low price. It costs a fraction of the price of dealership direct replacement and individual part replacement.

long-icon-xIs Your Suspension Failing?

How do I know if my 1985-1990 Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight (98) Air Suspension is failing?

Look for the following signs that indicate a failed or leaking air suspension system on the 1985-1990 Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight. Early diagnosis of a bad suspension is key to avoiding total failure. An inability of the Oldsmobile to reach and maintain the proper ride height is a red flag. A sudden height variance also indicates a major suspension issue. Look for one sagging end and one inflated end. Look for a shifting lean from side to side. The ride may feel bouncy or bumpy, due to a decreased dampening capability. These imbalances, if not fixed in a timely fashion, will wear out the air compressor. Once this has occurred, a suspension warning light will illuminate on the instrument cluster. When suspension failure is this advanced, a repair will be very expensive.

long-icon-gearVehicle Components

What kind of suspension does my 1985-1990 Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight (98) have?

The 1985-1990 Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight is built with the following front suspension components:

1985-1990 Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight 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.

1985-1990 Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight 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.

1985-1990 Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight Suspension Control Module- a computer which is responsible for the operations of the electronic suspension system and maintaining the vehicle’s correct ride height.
