The 2016-2021 Nissan Armada is built with the following suspension components:
2016-2021 Nissan Armada Rear Air Shocks (x2) - A rubber bladder atop the shock itself fills with air to automatically keep the vehicle level and assist with the ride quality. The rubber portion of the air shock is the most common cause of leaks in the air system. The rubber portion develops cracks due to normal wear and tear and dry rot from exposure to the elements. The cracks leak air from the system and cause the onboard compressor to work overtime.
2016-2021 Nissan Armada Height Sensors (x2) - A linkage located near each wheel that constantly measures the height of the vehicle and reports this information back to the control module (computer). The ride height sensor is a moving part and they will eventually wear out.
2016-2021 Nissan Armada Front Coil-over Struts (x2) - Metal tubing filled with gas-charged hydraulic fluid (similar to a shock absorber) that is connected to the wheel of a vehicle in order to reduce bouncing motion and vibration caused by travel on rough surfaces. Coil-over struts have a coil spring seated at the top which controls the height of the vehicle. Over time, the fluids leak out of the struts from millions of up and down cycles and they need to be replaced. Coil springs can become weakened on a high-mileage vehicle, too.
2016-2021 Nissan Armada Air Lines - Tubes that carry pressurized air to the rubber bladder in the air shocks.
2016-2021 Nissan Armada Air Compressor Assembly - Creates and sends pressurized air to the rear air shocks. When the air suspension starts leaking, the compressor (also known as an air pump) starts working harder to try to keep the system inflated. By the time air suspension leaks down completely, the compressor will either have failed totally or it will still run, but no longer be able to make enough air to do the job.
2016-2021 Nissan Armada Dryer - Prevents moisture build-up inside of air suspension parts.
2016-2021 Nissan Armada Suspension Control Module - A computer responsible for the operations of the air suspension system and maintaining the vehicle's correct ride height.
Suspension Failure Signs
The most common symptom of a leaking or failed air suspension is a sudden loss of two to four inches of ride height in the rear of the vehicle. Other symptoms could include a suspension warning message or light in the instrument cluster and/or an air compressor no longer working or running way too often (which would be very noisy and noticeable). Failed rear air shocks will also result in poor ride quality in the rear of the vehicle. For the best chance of repair, experienced technicians recommend a complete overhaul of the air suspension system by replacing all of the major components. This type of repair is expensive! And that's why a Strutmasters conversion kit is such a popular alternative.
OEM Replacement Cost
- + Air Shocks ($220 /air shock)
- + Compressor and Dryer Assembly ($650 )
- + Coil Springs ($100 /spring)
- = Over $1290 (but that doesn't include replacing electronic components that are known to fail such as the height sensors).
Aftermarket Replacement Cost
- + Compressor and Dryer Assembly
- + Air Shocks
- = Over $650 (but that doesn't include replacing electronic components that are known to fail such as the height sensors).
The air suspension system on the 2016-2021 Nissan Armada relies on an assortment of complicated and expensive parts that must always work in unison. When one part breaks, the rest of the system follows suit. Experienced technicians recommend a complete overhaul of the system, replacing all of the major components, to have a high success rate of repair. Instead of spending hundreds, even thousands going through the entire system, consider a money-saving conversion kit from Strutmasters. The kit provides a pair of passive shocks that bolt right in place of the expensive air shocks, plus a new pair of coil springs tuned to work with the new passive suspension. The conversion kit gets rid of the dependence on high-tech, expensive parts and fixes the vehicle once and for all.
Each Strutmasters conversion kit is designed, assembled, sold, shipped, and serviced at their family-owned facility in North Carolina. The quality parts are more reliable than the originals and backed by a 1-year warranty. Customers appreciate the detailed instructions and online installation videos which help them get the kit installed in about one hour per wheel. Tech support is available for Strutmasters customers. Last, but not least, is the savings: The cost of the kit is a fraction of the prices of direct replacement at the Nissan dealer or individual aftermarket part replacement.
