The 2000-2006 BMW X5 is built with the following suspension components: 2000-2006 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. 2000-2006 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. 2000-2006 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. 2000-2006 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. 2000-2006 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. 2000-2006 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. 2000-2006 BMW X5 Suspension Control Module- a computer which is responsible for the operations of the air suspension system and maintaining the vehicles correct ride height. 2000-2006 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.
Suspension Failure Signs
A dramatic shift in ride height of your vehicle can be an indicator that your air suspension system has failed, is leaking, or is going bad. Sagging can occur in the front or back, with inflation occurring on the opposite side. In the case of total failure you may notice the entire vehicle hanging lower to the ground than usual. Side to side leaning can cause your system to wear out even further. Total failure of the air compressor may also indicate you need a suspension replacement. Ride height is key. If you wear out your suspension, you may need a lift kit, repair, or complete replacement of your suspension system.
OEM Replacement Cost
'+ Front Air Struts ($469/strut) + Compressor ($699) = TOTAL: Over $1,637 (and that doesnt even include replacing electronic components that are known to fail such as the height sensors).
