long-icon-xIs Your Suspension Failing?

How do I know if my 2007-2012 BMW X5 Air Suspension is failing?

If you notice your car has an uneven, changing, or unusual ride height, there is a chance you are dealing with a failed or leaking air suspension. There are specific indicators to look out for that will tell you if you need to repair a bad system. Sudden changes in ride height, in the front, back or either side, is the first sign. Sagging and leaning is something else to look out for. If you see a warning message or light on your instrument console, it could be a failed suspension. Your air compressor might also wear out if you are running on a leaking air suspension. A working air compressor is not noticeable- any noise or disturbance is a bad sign. Repair or replacement of a bad air suspension is important for overall vehicle maintenance.

long-icon-gearVehicle Components

What kind of suspension does my 2007-2012 BMW X5 have?

The 2007-2012 BMW X5 is built with the following suspension components:  2007-2012 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.  2007-2012 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.  2007-2012 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.  2007-2012 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.  2007-2012 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.  2007-2012 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.  2007-2012 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.  2007-2012 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.

Name: | Location: Memphis Tennessee | SKU: BB2RB

I purchased the bb2rb kit for my 08 x5. The instruction that came with was up to 07 year.
The top mount for the spring is totally wrong.
08 model don’t have the collar for the mount to
Rest securely in place. Luckily my 19 years of mechanic experience came through. I had to installed a big washer in the center of the mount plate and let keep its center in the mount hole.
The product works but not happy that I had to
Rig it to make it work
