long-icon-xIs Your Suspension Failing?

How do I know if my 1993-2002 Cadillac Eldorado 4.6L Air Suspension is failing?

If you have ever owned a Cadillac or any other GM vehicle with rear air suspension, then you’re probably no stranger to the sight of your car squatting on the pavement. Nor are you probably a stranger to how expensive and extensive repairing your failed air suspension with direct replacements from the dealer can be! What you may not know after taking your failing air suspension back to the dealership: even though you may have only one or two repairs necessary at the time, once one part of that air suspension starts to go bad, you are almost certainly on your way to total failure!

long-icon-gearVehicle Components

What kind of suspension does my 1993-2002 Cadillac Eldorado 4.6L have?

The 1993-2002 Cadillac Eldorado 4.6L is built with the following suspension components:

1993-2002 Cadillac Eldorado 4.6L 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 Cadillac Deville’s struts, while having coil-springs, use an electronic signal to stiffen or soften the dampening of the strut.

1993-2002 Cadillac Eldorado 4.6L Shock Absorbers (x2)- a 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 shock absorbers.

1993-2002 Cadillac Eldorado 4.6L Coil Springs (x2)- Coil springs hold the vehicle up but be careful, they are rated for and designed to work with the rest of the suspension system, so when you change air shocks to passive shocks, then you will need a different rated coil spring that works well with the new type of shocks.

1993-2002 Cadillac Eldorado 4.6L Air Lines- tubes that run from a compressor (air suspension) to the air struts which carry pressurized air to the air bags components in order to adjust the height of the vehicle, respectively.

1993-2002 Cadillac Eldorado 4.6L Solenoids (x4)- usually L-shaped, these plastic components connect the electrical connection and lines of suspension components to the suspension control module on vehicles with active suspension. The solenoid regulates the air pressure for each air spring. Solenoids start to leak as they wear out causing the vehicle to sag or to lean. This will cause the ride height sensor to send a signal to activate the compressor in an attempt to inflate the air suspension and level out the vehicle. This excessive work load will eventually lead to total failure of the compressor.

1993-2002 Cadillac Eldorado 4.6L Compressor- creates/sends pressurized to active suspension components. When the air suspension starts leaking, the compressor/pump starts working harder to try to keep the system inflated. By the time air suspension leaks down completely, sitting the vehicle on its tires, the compressor will either have failed or be well on its way to full failure. Buying replacement struts and taking the time to install them only to find out the compressor still needs to be replaced can be very frustrating, time-consuming, and expensive.

1993-2002 Cadillac Eldorado 4.6L Dryer Assembly- used to keep moisture out of air lines and air springs in order to prevent freezing and internal cracking of these parts. Once air suspension starts leaking, moisture will build-up throughout the air system. Moisture damages the air suspension from the inside. The dryer will need to be replaced in order to eliminate the moisture and prevent any further damage.

1993-2002 Cadillac Eldorado 4.6L Suspension Control Module- a computer which is responsible for the operations of the air suspension system and maintaining the vehicle’s correct ride height.

1993-2002 Cadillac Eldorado 4.6L O-rings- Although they are the least expensive parts of the air suspension, they are responsible for maintaining the seal where all of the air lines connect. Be sure to replace the O-rings when repairing any air suspension system.
