long-icon-xIs Your Suspension Failing?

How do I know if my 2003-2009 Hummer H2 Air Suspension is failing?

Just like most other vehicles with an air suspension, 2003-2009 Hummer H2 owners usually come out one day to find their rear end sagging. If this sounds familiar then you have a leak in your air suspension. A leak can occur in any one of several components: the airbag, air lines, or any of the seals. The first thing you’ll want to do is locate the air leak which can occur in one or multiple locations so be sure to check the entire system. You can either take your vehicle to your mechanic or you can spray soapy water over all the components to locate the leaks. You want to be sure to repair any leaks quickly because the longer the leak goes on the more stress there is put on the compressor and the shorter its lifespan. If the compressor on your Hummer is running frequently or has become noisy it’s likely you will have to replace it as well and that can get very pricey. It’s important to catch any suspension problems on your H2 early before they cause total suspension failure requiring a complete replacement of your air suspension and thousands of dollars out of your pocket.

long-icon-gearVehicle Components

What kind of suspension does my 2003-2009 Hummer H2 have?

The 2003-2009 Hummer H2 is built with the following rear suspension components:

2003-2009 Hummer H2 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.

2003-2009 Hummer H2 Shock Absorbers (x2) - 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. Some models dampening may be controlled by the suspension control module and can be very costly to replace.

2003-2009 Hummer H2 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.

2003-2009 Hummer H2 Air Lines- tubes that run from a compressor to the air which carry pressurized air to the air bags in order to adjust the height of the vehicle, respectively.

2003-2009 Hummer H2 Solenoids (x2) - 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.

2003-2009 Hummer H2 Compressor Assembly- 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 air springs 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. This compressor also acts as an external compressor, allowing the owner to inflate the tires. Our conversion kit will allow owners to continue to make use of this function once installing our conversion kit!

2003-2009 Hummer H2 Dryer- prevents moisture build-up inside of air suspension parts.

2003-2009 Hummer H2 Suspension Control Module- a computer which is responsible for the operations of the air suspension system and maintaining the vehicle’s correct ride height.

2003-2009 Hummer H2 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.

Name: | Location: Galloway, NJ | SKU: HA1RB

My H2 suffered from a saggy rear end. Here’s how Strutmasters took my truck’s rear suspension from zero to hero.

Short:

* Phone reps know their products, answered all my questions.
* Installation to convert from the stock H2 air ride to the Strutmasters coil was very straight-forward and was done in my dad’s (home) garage with a jack and some basic tools.
* Direct replacement parts is nearly the best way I could describe this kit. Knuckles weren’t busted, torches weren’t turned on, etc.
* Truck sits perfectly level with the kit and ride feels the same without the headache of a future sag issues. Feel a big weight lifted never having to worry about it again.

Longer:

About 5 years ago, my air bags went bad and replaced them. I was good up until about a month ago when the compressor failed.

After dealing and fighting with the air ride now twice at this point, I had enough and started looking into a coil conversion because I never wanted to deal with the sag issue again.

I called Strutmasters and the representative that answered the phone had all the answers to my questions, ordered the HA1RB kit over the phone (my shocks were in questionable shape so ordered the kit that came with shocks while I’d be in that area) and in a few days the parts all arrived.

I was expecting this to be a bit of a project, but the the parts were almost literally direct replacements. Directions were to the point and pretty obvious.

The truck sits perfectly level and the ride feels the same, without the headache of ever having to worry about the air ride or rear sag ever again!

Anybody that’s tired of dealing with the air ride issues, absolutely check out the Strutmasters kits and save yourself the headache.

Strutmaster’s kits are going the be the first thing I mention to any other H2s I see with dragging rears.

Feel much more confident in the truck’s reliability!

Thanks Strutmasters!!
