long-icon-questionWhy Choose Strutmasters?

Why choose the Conversion Kit over replacing the air suspension system on your 2002-2009 Audi A8?

Our air suspension conversion kit for the 2002-2009 Audi A8 replaces all four of your air struts with quality preassembled coilover struts. Our struts utilize Strutmasters patented Glide Ride technology. These direct replacement struts are built with quality Eibach® cold-wound steel coil springs. This conversion kit will save you thousands of dollars, countless headaches, and multiple trips to and from the shop by deleting your entire complex air system with one install. No more worrying about electrical issues interfering with your comfort (as these A8’s are known for locking up in an uncomfortable “limp mode” from time to time), no more worrying about having to drop $2,400 at the dealership to replace a worn out air compressor, and no more sagging issues. Our passive Audi A8 air suspension conversion kit will ensure you are riding right at an affordable price!

long-icon-xIs Your Suspension Failing?

How do I know if my 2002-2009 Audi A8 Air Suspension is failing?

Your 2002-2009 Audi A8 has a very complex air suspension system. This system was designed with an almost unprecedented amount of onboard sensors designed to detect failing air suspension components as well as failing sensors. Previous air suspension systems utilized ride-height sensors in order to determine if the air bags were going bad. This was essentially an analog-style system wherein these accordion-like sensors acted like a vertical scale. If the “scale” was tipped too high or too low at one of the corners of the vehicle, it would send a signal that “something’s wrong with the suspension on that side of the vehicle”. Also, previous air compressors could only send generic failure or error messages. The 2002-2009 Audi A8’s air suspension system uses sensors and an onboard diagnostic system that can actually tell you particular issues with specific worn out and identify failing air suspension components. On the dashboard, there are various LED indicators that can tell you things like if an air strut is actually leaking, or if your air compressor is over-heating, etc.

As always, the site of your vehicle not sitting level or changing ride height when not in use is going to be a sure-fire clue that your suspension system is going to need some repairs or replacing. However, with the 2002-2009 Audi A8, paying attention to the amber LED or the air bag light on the dash is a good way to catch your air suspension going bad in its early stages. Catching the system going bad early-on gives you time to save money, it gives you choices, and the ability to plan on how, when, and where you would like to fix your over-worked suspension before the air system hits total failure!

long-icon-gearVehicle Components

What kind of suspension does my 2002-2009 Audi A8 have?

The 2002-2009 Audi A8 is built with the following suspension components:

2002-2009 Audi A8 Air Struts (x4)- struts that contain an air bladder whose dampening capabilities is controlled by the suspension control module; these have two functions. They connect the wheel of a vehicle to the driving surface in order to reduce the effects of vertical travel on a rough surface which controls the bounciness, and therefore comfort, of a vehicle. They also help maintain the vehicles correct ride height, especially whenever the amount of load put onto the vehicle changes.

2002-2009 Audi A8 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.

2002-2009 Audi A8 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.

2002-2009 Audi A8 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.

2002-2009 Audi A8 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.

2002-2009 Audi A8 Suspension Control Module- a computer which is responsible for the operations of the air suspension system and maintaining the vehicle’s correct ride height.

2002-2009 Audi A8 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.
