Why Choose Strutmasters?
Why choose the Conversion Kit over replacing the air suspension system on your 1996-1999 Oldsmobile LSS?
Strutmasters' air to non-air suspension conversion kit saves LSS owners time, frustration, and money when the air suspension system goes bad. The kit, made in America, eliminates the faulty reliance of the air suspension on each component always functioning in sync. The kit includes two completely pre-assembled coilover struts that are installed in one hour per wheel with just a few bolts per strut. DIYers appreciate the detailed instructions and online installation videos that help guide a smooth repair. If further help 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 most appealing to LSS owners is the low price. The kit costs considerably less money than dealer direct replacement and individual aftermarket part replacement.
Is Your Suspension Failing?
How do I know if my 1996-1999 Oldsmobile LSS Air Suspension is failing?
Early detection of a failed or leaking air suspension system in the 1996-1999 Oldsmobile LSS is critical to avoiding total failure. Look for a sudden uneven height variance between different sides of the LSS. Typically, with this vehicle, the rear or front end will sag and the opposite end will remain inflated. There may be a shifting lean from one side to the other. The LSS may appear to be “squatting down” in the rear. Other classic signs to look for are an improperly working air compressor (one that runs too often or stops working altogether) and an illuminated suspension warning light on the instrument panel. The LSS owner should have any suspension issue fixed as soon as it presents itself. The longer one postpones a repair, the more expensive it is.
What kind of suspension does my 1996-1999 Oldsmobile LSS have?
The 1996-1999 Oldsmobile LSS is built with the following suspension components:
1996-1999 Oldsmobile LSS 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.
1996-1999 Oldsmobile LSS Electronic Air 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 struts, while having coil-springs, use an electronic signal to stiffen or soften the dampening of the strut.
1996-1999 Oldsmobile LSS 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.
1996-1999 Oldsmobile LSS 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.
1996-1999 Oldsmobile LSS 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.
1996-1999 Oldsmobile LSS 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.
1996-1999 Oldsmobile LSS 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.
1996-1999 Oldsmobile LSS Suspension Control Module- a computer which is responsible for the operations of the air suspension system and maintaining the vehicle’s correct ride height.
1996-1999 Oldsmobile LSS 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.
