How Do I know If My Deville 4.6L Air Suspension is failing?

There are classic signs that indicate a failed or leaking air suspension system on the 1997-1999 Cadillac Deville. Look for these signs to diagnose a bad suspension before it's too late and total failure sets in. An inability to reach and maintain the proper ride height is a red flag. A sudden height variance between different sides of the Deville also points to suspension trouble. This may look like one sagging end and one inflated end (usually the rear sags first). The Deville may appear to be “squatting down.” There may be a shifting lean from side to side. These imbalances should be fixed immediately, otherwise, the air compressor will wear out. If the air compressor has already stopped working, suspension failure is advanced. A suspension warning light will illuminate on the dash.

Suspension Components List

The 1997-1999 Cadillac Deville is built with the following suspension components:

1997-1999 Cadillac Deville 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.

1997-1999 Cadillac Deville 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.

1997-1999 Cadillac Deville 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.

1997-1999 Cadillac Deville 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.

1997-1999 Cadillac Deville 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.

1997-1999 Cadillac Deville 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.

1997-1999 Cadillac Deville 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.

1997-1999 Cadillac Deville Suspension Control Module- a computer which is responsible for the operations of the air suspension system and maintaining the vehicle’s correct ride height.

1997-1999 Cadillac Deville 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.

Other than your technician not knowing that the stabilizer link directly attaches to the strut on all 2000 Eldorado’s, I love your product. By the way, the hole in the original strut is tapered so it would help if directions called for a small press to remove the link. As far as I’m concerned, the car rides as good as new and I’ve been driving Eldorado’s since 1970, most of them new until 1998. I put 330,000 miles on my ’98.

“I just closed my company after 24 years in the automotive industry “”UpGrade Auto Products Inc.””

I have used your products in the past in Truck applications and had very good results. This is the first time I used a Strutmaster product on a sedan. The front strut package for my personal Eldorado turned out wonderful. Very nice handling and just the ride I had hoped for. Ride height was perfect and in fact I did a 4 wheel lazzer alignment after the replacement and the front end was well in spec and required NO adjustments.”

I can say that the Eldorado replacement struts are fine and well worth the savings over the gas cartridge for my basic model. Sales Reps were very helpful. I was able to send pics of my suspension to them to assure the proper selection of parts.
