long-icon-questionWhy Choose Strutmasters?

Why choose the Conversion Kit over replacing the air suspension system on your 2005-2009 Saab 9-7X?

The various parts that comprise the air suspension system on the 2005-2009 Saab 9-7x must function in sync. When one part is broken, the system fails. This dependency on complicated electrical components is expensive and time-consuming. Strutmasters' air to non-air suspension conversion kit is an affordable direct replacement solution to this dilemma. The kit, manufactured in America, includes two cold-wound steel Eibach coil springs and two shocks for the rear end of the 9-7x. Built to save time and frustration for the Saab owner, the kit can be installed in as little as one hour per wheel. Strutmasters offers unparalleled customer service, too. A Lifetime Limited Warranty, ASE certified support technicians, and online installation videos are just a few of the perks our customers enjoy. Not to mention, the kit is vastly less expensive than alternative options. A closer look at three different prices will shed light on the considerable savings: that of repairing the air suspension system directly at the Saab dealer, that of installing aftermarket air parts, and that of installing a Strutmasters air to non-air suspension conversion kit on the 9-7x. It's time to say goodbye to the faulty air ride and hello to this quality, reliable replacement.

long-icon-xIs Your Suspension Failing?

How do I know if my 2005-2009 Saab 9-7X Air Suspension is failing?

If the 05-09 Saab 9-7x is unable to meet and maintain its proper ride height, its air suspension system may be failed or leaking. Early diagnosis of a bad suspension is the key to avoiding suspension total failure. First, look for a sudden uneven height difference between different sides of the vehicle. Typically the rear suspension will fail, causing it to sag, but the front will remain inflated. Also, any sort of shifting lean from one side to the other is a red flag. If left unchecked, a bad suspension can wear out other vehicle components. The air compressor is especially susceptible to this; check if it is still working or is running too often. Lastly, and this sign is more obvious, an illuminated suspension warning light on the dashboard will confirm a suspension failure. The Saab owner should have any of these issues fixed immediately.

long-icon-gearVehicle Components

What kind of suspension does my 2005-2009 Saab 9-7X have?

The 2005-2009 Saab 9-7X is built with the following suspension components:

2005-2009 Saab 9-7X 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.

2005-2009 Saab 9-7X Struts (x2)- a type of shock absorber; 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.; the air spring assembled on top of the strut is commonly referred to as an air strut.

2005-2009 Saab 9-7X Shock Absorbers (x2)- these control the wheel-to-ground contact for the rear of this vehicle.

2005-2009 Saab 9-7X 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.

2005-2009 Saab 9-7X 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.

2005-2009 Saab 9-7X Solenoids (x2)- 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.

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 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.

2005-2009 Saab 9-7X Dryer- prevents moisture build-up inside of air suspension parts.

2005-2009 Saab 9-7X Suspension Control Module- a computer which is responsible for the operations of the air suspension system and maintaining the vehicle’s correct ride height.

2005-2009 Saab 9-7X 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: Boylston | SKU: GB1RB

I recently ordered a conversion kit for my 2007 Saab 97X SUV. The air lift suspension began to fail. First, the airbags failed, then the pump went. The cost to replace the pump alone was about $500. Then there is labor and other parts might fail in the future like a sensor. I did not want to sink that much money into my SUV!

The conversion kit was the perfect solution. It was simple, effective, safe, reliable and relatively inexpensive. The company shipped it promptly and it saved me a lot of money!

So glad I found Strutmasters.
