long-icon-questionWhy Choose Strutmasters?

Why choose the Conversion Kit over replacing the air suspension system on your 2000-2006 BMW X5?

Our customers switch from air suspension to our non air suspension conversion kit because the price is low and the parts are high quality. The Strutmasters kit removes the complicated factory electrical parts of the 2000-2006 BMW X5 suspension and instead uses two pre-assembled complete front strut assemblies with Eibach springs, two front rearward lower control bushings, two sway bar bushings, one left hand sway bar link, one right hand sway bar link, two rear Eibach coil springs, including upper and lower spring mounting plates and isolators, and two rear shock absorbers. The kit is convenient- it can be installed, yourself, in about one hour per wheel. The kit was created with our loyal DIYers in mind, although no modifiers are required. The kit includes everything you need and is a direct replacement suspension conversion. 

long-icon-xIs Your Suspension Failing?

How do I know if my 2000-2006 BMW X5 Air Suspension is failing?

The usual signs of a failed or leaking air suspension on your 2000-2006 BMW X5 air suspension is a sudden and very noticeable uneven height difference in ride height. This will look like a sagging or inflated side, either on the left or right. Many drivers also notice this from the front to the rear, or vice versa. You might see a leaning from the left to right side of the X5. Maybe the entire X5 looks like it’s squatting low to the ground. Either way, make sure your 2000-2006 BMW X5 is maintaining its appropriate ride height. If not, you may be looking at a suspension total failure. Other signs indicating bad suspension are a non working air compressor. Alternatively, an over-worked air compressor will sound noisy and is also a bad sign. Lastly, look for a suspension warning light on your X5 instrument cluster. If it’s illuminated, you’ll need a repair or replacement before all the other X5 components wear out.

long-icon-gearVehicle Components

What kind of suspension does my 2000-2006 BMW X5 have?

The 2000-2006 BMW X5 is built with the following suspension components:



2000-2006 BMW X5 Air Springs (x2)- commonly referred to as air bags, a plastic and rubber bag that is fitted on top of the strut that uses pressurized air as a cushion instead of a metal coil spring to hold a vehicle off of the ground and off of its wheels. These are the number one cause of all air suspension leaks. All air springs all go bad at about the same rate. If one is leaking, the others will not be far behind. For a proper repair, all of them need to be replaced at the same time.



2000-2006 BMW X5 Rear Gas Shock Absorbers (x2)- This vehicle is equipped with 2 rear gas shocks. These shocks are what absorb the impact of the rear tires hitting the road and make the vehicle ride smoothly shock absorbers.



2000-2006 BMW X5 Struts (x2)- on some 4x4 models. A type of shock absorber, it is a piece of 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.



2000-2006 BMW X5 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.



2000-2006 BMW X5 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.



2000-2006 BMW X5 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.



2000-2006 BMW X5 Suspension Control Module- a computer which is responsible for the operations of the air suspension system and maintaining the vehicle’s correct ride height.



2000-2006 BMW X5 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.
