Is Your Check Suspension Light On?

Air Spring

Any one of these items could be the cause:

Air Spring: This is the number one cause of all air suspension leaks. All of your air springs were installed at the same time and they all go bad at about the same rate. If one is leaking, the others can't be far behind. For a proper repair, all of them need to be replaced at the same time. Air Ride Suspension Compressor Compressor/Air Pump: When your air suspension started leaking, your compressor/air pump started working harder to try to keep the system inflated. As the air system leaked more, it worked even harder. The compressor in your air suspension was not designed to work that hard. By the time your air suspension leaked down completely, your compressor had failed. Buying air struts and taking the time to install them only to find out you still need to replace your compressor can be very frustrating and expensive. Air Ride Suspension Dryer Dryer: Once your air suspension starts leaking, there will be moisture in the system. Moisture damages the air suspension from the inside. You will have to replace the dryer to eliminate the moisture and stop this damage. Air Ride Suspension O Ring O-rings: Although they are the least expensive parts of the air suspension, they are responsible for maintaining the seal where all the air lines connect. If you do any work on your air suspension, be sure to replace the O-rings. Air Suspension Ride Height Sensor Ride Height Sensor: Chances are your vehicle has 100,000 miles on it, maybe more. The ride height sensor is a moving part, and like all moving parts, they will eventually wear out. Air Suspension Solenoid Solenoid: The solenoid regulates the air pressure for each air spring. Solenoids start to leak as they wear out causing your suspension 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.  

How Do I Know If My Air Suspension Is Failing?

The most common symptom of a leaking or failed air suspension is a sagging rear end or the entire vehicle is squatting down like the vehicles pictured below. Other clues include your air compressor is no longer working or is running way too often. The last major tip is your vehicle is no longer able to reach or maintain the proper ride height. Mercedes-Benz With Failed Air Ride Suspension BMW With Failed Air Ride Suspension GMC With Failed Air Ride Suspension Ford With Failed Air Ride Suspension Toyota With Failed Air Ride Suspension

Why Do Air Suspensions Fail?

Leaking Air Ride Strut The primary reason is the air bags that are part of the air spring are made out of rubber and they dry rot over a period of 5 to 7 years. They develop cracks and start to leak. Extreme heat and extreme cold accelerate the rate of decay, so if you live in the extreme north or the extreme south, your air suspension system will fail faster. There is no way to repair the air bag once it starts to leak, it has to be replaced. After the systems starts leaking, the compressor is usually next to go. Most of the time, the compressor has actually failed before the owner notices there is a problem. The failure of the compressor triggers the check suspension light, but it is already too late. The extent of the repairs required at this point is very expensive.  

Replacing A Leaking Air Strut Or A Failed Compressor Is Not Going To Fix Your Air Suspension Completely.

You Still Have Other Air Suspension Components That Will Also Need Replacing:

    • Other Air Struts/Air Shocks/Air Springs: All Of Your Air Struts/Air Shocks/Air Springs Were Installed At The Same Time And They All Go Bad At About The Same Rate. If One Is Already Leaking, The Others Can't Be Far Behind. For A Proper Repair, All Of Them Need To Be Replaced At The Same Time.
 
    • Dryer: Once Your Air Suspension Starts Leaking, There Will Be Moisture In The System. Moisture Damages The Air Suspension From The Inside. You Will Have To Replace The Dryer To Stop This Damage.
 
    • Compressor/Air Pump: When Your Air Suspension Started Leaking, Your Compressor/Air Pump Started Working Harder To Try To Keep The System Inflated. As The System Leaked More, It Worked Even Harder. The Compressor In Your Air Suspension Was Not Designed To Work That Hard. By The Time Your Air Suspension Leaks Down Completely, Your Compressor Has Failed. Buying Air Struts And Taking The Time To Install Them Only To Find Out You Still Need To Replace Your Compressor Can Be Very Frustrating And Expensive.
 
    • Ride Height Sensor: Chances Are Your Vehicle Has 100,000 miles On It, Maybe More. The Ride Height Sensor Is A Moving Part, And Like All Moving Parts, They Wear Out.
 
  • Solenoid: The Solenoid Regulates The Air Pressure For Each Air Strut/Air Shock/Air Spring. Solenoids Start To Leak As They Wear Out Causing Your Suspension 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.

Ignoring The Problem Is Not The Solution

Failure to repair your air suspension system can also lead to some major safety issues, such as an air spring blowing out while doing 75MPH could send the car into a spin. Really, really not good. A faulty air suspension can cause loss of work, car rental, towing bills, excessive repair costs (especially by big car dealerships), and in general can be very frustrating and inconvenient to say the least. Bottom line: it can cost you big bucks.

"What The Dealer Won't Tell You..."

With the insider information I know today, I can assure you that the OEM parts will always fail and are just another way for car dealers to "line their pockets" at your expense. Paying The Dealer For Air Ride Suspension Repairs

"Dealerships Have Used This Dirty Little Trick For Years..."

The dealerships and parts dealers want you to buy replacement parts because they know that your other air suspension and electronic parts are bound to fail in the very near future, forcing you to continue to buy more and more air suspension replacement parts over time. They make a killing as you grow more and more frustrated! Man Stuck On The Road With No Car The stark reality is that luxury car and SUV owners like you, have been left in the dark. These replacement parts are expensive and in most cases it will be necessary for you to pay a dealership a bundle of cash to install them. Increasing even more the cost to get your ride fixed. Many times, you will also have to rent a car because the dealership will take days to get your air suspension working properly. The worst part about this whole situation is that you don't have a car, the dealership takes forever to fix your ride and then the dealership will use that against you and magically find lots of other parts that “have” to be fixed. You know because it's happened to you before or to someone you know. Don't fall for their trap...it's not pretty once they have you. They will be laughing all the way to the bank. Please, don't let these guys take your hard earned money. You have another option, and Strutmasters has done all the hard work for you.

WELD STUDS. Install went smooth until I went to use the new(that was told to use in instructions) nuts on the shock mounts. Well the studs spun when the lock nuts were going on. TWO AND A HALF HOURS LATER had to use bolt extractor and nut and bolt shock mount in. STRUTMASTERS CAN YOU TACK WIELD THE DAM STUDS IN BECAUSE THE PRESS IN ONES DON’T HOLD WITH NEW LOCKING NUTS! Would be a 5 star review if not for mount trouble, ride is great. If you would like to avoid 2 and 1/2 wasted hours of time(one side thankfully) weld the studs fast to the mount.

I talked to Brad at Strutmasters about converting my 2004 Cadillac Deville from air suspension to a coil spring suspension. After a brief conversation, Brad convinced me that making the conversion was THE perfect solution to my air suspension problems. My order was shipped UPS the next business day and arrived here in Houston three days later. Within a week my Cadillac was back on the road giving me a smooth ride once more. I am satisfied in all respects with Strutmasters’ service, the parts, the resulting performance of my car, and, last but not least, saving an estimated $2,000+.

Ok, so after looking around for replacement susp on my 98 Deville air-ride I came across Strutmasters, which seems to be a legit option to get my baby on the road running smooth. Wrong!! I’m driving it again, but I didn’t plan on spending almost 800$ on a 4-wheel convo kit that feels like I traded my 98 caddy for a 99 cavalier. Overall ride, feel, handling is just far, far inferior to Cadillacs original design. Basically these cars are too heavy for the slightly better than Napa grade struts you get in the kit. Seriously, for the money just keep saving up and buy OEM instead.. If you dont care about ride quality and just wanna get back on the road cheap and fast, then by all means, shell out the dough, and if you cant do it yourself, good luck finding someone to install this without spending a small fortune. I applaude the idea here in trying to eliminate the air ride systems, but factory engineers know what they are doing, and they put air-ride on for a reason. Because it works.

Did front & rear strut conversion from electronic to regular. Customer said he could tell the differents in ride quality & ride height is perfect. Highly recommended!

“I used the product to replace my faulty air ride shocks on my 06 Cadillac SRX. I had replaced one air ride shock 2 years ago for $600 but the same one went bad, So, I just decided to replace all the factory air ride shocks. A little different ride but not in a bad way. I sprung for the heavy duty ones for my trailer (boat and utility).
I am a DIY guy but not a mechanic. I took the car to a friends house with a hoist which made it much easier. I did all four in a day but had to take the front ones to a shop to compress the springs and insert the struts inside the factory springs. The instructions were pretty good but not great. Overall, the experiance was good. I still have a message (Service Stability System) when I start my car since the compressor is not working (even though not needed). I expected there would be some resistor to remove this error or some work around for the cost of all these. Everything else was fine. If I had to I would probably do it again.”

“The “”check SSS”” light on my ’94 DeVille came on to stay recently. The ride on the Cadillac was starting to get a bit “”mushy”” so it was time to have the suspension checked out. The adjustable components of the system were showing signs of breakdown. After searching, STRUTMASTERS looked like the solution.
The staff at the shop were all very professional and knowledgeable. They know suspensions! After some consultation, I took the Caddy up to the Roxboro plant to have the original shocks replaced with the Strutmasters kit. Now I am back to cruising the highway in Cadillac comfort. For less than the cost of replacing one of the failing OEM struts the pros at Strutmasters installed their kit on front and rear. With only 103,000 miles on the old girl, I think there will be plenty more miles of travel together.
Thanks, Strutmasters!

I recently ordered the Deluxe Load Leveling 4 Wheel Suspension Conversion Kit With Resistor for my 2004 Cadillac SRX; the vehicle now rides and handles better than new, and I’m extremely happy with the results! This is the 2nd Strutmasters’ kit that I’ve purchased (rear suspension kit for a ’99 Cadillac Deville last year), and I’d recommend Strutmasters quality suspension kits for anyone who is serious about improving the handling and ride of their vehicle, regardless of make or model.

The air-ride system was going bad on my 06 Rainier. The compressor was good but the air-bag springs were leaking. I would come out in the morning or after work and it would be sitting very low. After starting car the bags would pump up (most of the time) and i dealt with it like this for quite some time. I decided to go with the springs after rationalizing that if i put new air springs on it, the compressor would be the next to go and then the $$ would just continue to go up. Overall ride seems quite good and certainly a nice change from waiting for the bags to pump up every time i start the car. Install was really easy. I am by no means a gear head but i did most of this work myself with the my bro-in-law supervising and assisting when needed. Right tools are the biggest need. If doing this yourself jackstands are a must as you need to keep the car up on them after you remove shocks and air-springs to let the rear suspension lower out of its ride position. Overall good economical fix.

I purchased regular air struts about two months ago, not realizing that the suspension air compressor had went bad. So there went $300+ flushed down the toilet. Did some searching and found STRUTMASTERS and thats all it took and the problem was solved, not “Ever” having to worry about a expensive Air suspension kit again. My 99′ “Bonne” sits higher in the rear and handles better Thanks to STRUTMASTERS, I’d recommend them to any1 who has the same or equilvelent problems with your vehicle. I have pics of before & after but can’t post them, take my word purchase them and notice the time, money and headaches you’ll save getting them. Purchased in April 2011.
