Why Choose Strutmasters?
Why choose the Conversion Kit over replacing the air suspension system on your 2000-2006 GMC Yukon And Yukon XL 1500?
As we have already discussed, there is a wide array of assorted parts that make up the air suspension system on your 2000-2006 GMC Yukon. If one part doesn’t function in sync, the entire suspension stops working properly. We knew there had to be a better way. Our air to non-air suspension conversion kit is an affordable direct replacement option- no modifications necessary- that eliminates the dependency on complicated electrical air parts for good. Our kit, for your Yukon and Yukon XL 1500, includes two passive rear shocks, two rear Eibach springs, and two passive front shocks. The kit is installed in about one hour per wheel and frustration is not an issue thanks to our detailed instructions and ASE certified technical support. DIYers love how much time, frustration, and money they saved- just read all the reviews from satisfied customers! Let’s compare three different repair options: repairing the air suspension at the GMC dealership, installing aftermarket air parts on the Yukon piece-by-piece, and getting rid of the air ride and installing a Strutmasters suspension conversion kit on the Yukon.
Is Your Suspension Failing?
How do I know if my 2000-2006 GMC Yukon And Yukon XL 1500 Air Suspension is failing?
Have you noticed recently that your compressor, located at the rear of the vehicle, is running for 30 seconds when you first turn on your Yukon and that it is even turning on while you’re driving? Does it seem like your 2000-2006 GMC Yukon isn’t sitting quite level or maybe it’s sagging a bit in the back? If so, then it’s likely you have a leak in your air suspension. The compressors on this vehicle have a tendency to fail around 80k miles so the first thing you want to do is check your fuse. It’s unlikely to be the culprit but it’s an easy, cheap fix if it is the problem. Your Yukon is equipped with an Auto Ride height adjustment system which relies on a multitude of parts to function properly, any of which could be causing an issue. Road grime can eat through the rubber air springs or hoses causing a leak or the dryer can fail leaving moisture in the system which will also cause a failure. If you can catch it early then the repair may be minimal depending on the cause, however if other defects in the system aren’t caught you could find yourself fixing the system again in a couple months. Replacing just one air spring at the dealer can cost $300 and that’s not including labor and you usually can’t replace just one because of the way they are tuned to run together. Bottom line is you may be looking at a huge $2400+ repair bill. If you notice any of these symptoms on your 2000-2006 Yukon or Yukon XL your want to have the system checked before you’re faced with a total suspension failure.
What kind of suspension does my 2000-2006 GMC Yukon And Yukon XL 1500 have?
The 2000-2006 GMC Yukon 1500 & Yukon XL is built with the following suspension components:
2000-2006 GMC Yukon 1500 & Yukon XL Air/Magnetic Shocks (x2)- shocks that contain an air bladder or magnets whose dampening capabilities is controlled by the suspension control module.
2000-2006 GMC Yukon 1500 & Yukon XL Coil Springs (x4)- 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.
2000-2006 GMC Yukon 1500 & Yukon XL Torsion Bar- Adjustable horizontal bar on the front of the vehicle that holds the vehicle off the groundtorsion bar.
2000-2006 GMC Yukon 1500 & Yukon XL 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.
2000-2006 GMC Yukon 1500 & Yukon XL 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 GMC Yukon 1500 & Yukon XL 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.
2000-2006 GMC Yukon 1500 & Yukon XL 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 GMC Yukon 1500 & Yukon XL 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 GMC Yukon 1500 & Yukon XL 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 GMC Yukon 1500 & Yukon XL 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.

I ordered the conversion Kit in November from your company to convert my 2005 Yukon Denali Air shock system over to conventional. It took me awhile to finally install them and they are now installed and I have been driving on them for about a week now.
All I can say is WOW! What a big difference and the ride quality is outstanding! The installation was straight forward and I didn’t run into any issue. The price was awesome and I would have only been able to buy one replacement air shock for the price of the whole system I bought from you.
Your company just earned a life time customer and will be returning soon for a BMW I own. I will spread the word for sure as well. Love my truck and how it rides now. Thank you and I love its American made!
Thank You and Happy New Year!
