Why Choose Strutmasters Instead Of Those Other Guys

The assorted parts that make up the air suspension system on the 1986-1999 Buick LeSabre must always work together. The entire system is defunct if one component is out of sync. Strutmasters' air to non-air suspension conversion kit eliminates this reliance for good. Made in the USA, the kit comes complete with two custom-rated coil springs and two hydraulic fluid gas-charged struts for the rear of the LeSabre. The kit can be installed in one hour per wheel, no modifications are needed. Easy to follow instructions and online installation videos help guide a smooth repair. The quality parts are backed by Strutmasters' Lifetime Limited Warranty, providing customers with peace of mind. Lastly, the cost of the kit is a fraction of the prices of dealership direct replacement and individual part replacement. Top-notch customer service, excellent quality, and competitive pricing make this coilover suspension conversion kit the smartest choice.

How Do I know If My LeSabre Air Suspension is failing?

The most common sign of a failed or leaking air suspension system in the 1986-1999 Buick LeSabre is a sudden height difference between different sides of the vehicle. Early detection of a bad suspension system is critical to avoiding total failure, so look for any unusual sagging in the rear end. There may also be a shifting lean from side to side. These height imbalances, if not fixed promptly, will wear out the air compressor over time. If the air compressor stops working or runs too often then suspension failure will advance further. A suspension warning light will illuminate on the instrument panel.

Suspension Components List

The 1986-1999 Buick LeSabre is built with the following rear suspension components:

1986-1999 Buick LeSabre Air Struts (x2) - struts that contain an air bladder whose dampening capabilities is controlled by the suspension control module; they serve two purposes. These connect the wheel of a vehicle to the driving surface in order to reduce the effects of vertical travel on a rough surface which controls the bounciness, and therefore comfort, of a vehicle. They also help maintain the vehicles correct ride height, especially whenever the amount of load put onto the vehicle changes.

1986-1999 Buick LeSabre Coil Springs (x2) - what we love! Coil springs hold the vehicle up but be careful, they are rated for and designed to work with the rest of the suspension system, so when you change air shocks to passive shocks, then you will need a different rated coil spring that works well with the new type of shocks.

1986-1999 Buick LeSabre 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.

1986-1999 Buick LeSabre Air Lines - tubes that run from a compressor to the air which carry pressurized air to the air struts in order to adjust the height of the vehicle, respectively.

1986-1999 Buick LeSabre 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.

1986-1999 Buick LeSabre Dryer - prevents moisture build-up inside of air suspension parts.

1986-1999 Buick LeSabre Suspension Control Module - a computer which is responsible for the operations of the air suspension system and maintaining the vehicles correct ride height.

1986-1999 Buick LeSabre 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.

Buick LeSabre Review – Brett Secrist

I ordered the conversion kit for the rear air shocks on my 1999 Lesabre and was very pleased with the product, ease of installation (they even sent detailed instructions) and the customer service from Jennifer. She even sent a Thank You card after my purchase. I forgot what the car was supposed to ride like….Thank you Strutmasters!

1991-1996 Buick Park Avenue Rear Air Suspension Conversion Kit (CADR2) Review Snowden Mathews Jr.

“My brother and I just did this conversion of my ’96 Buick Park Avenue Ultra. The parts supplied are all top notch. I’m very happy with the components shipped to me. But on that year and model car there are a few things you need to know. First, your best bet is to have access to a car lift and a 4′ tall screw-jack stand. Also a center pull spring compressor is a must!!!! If you have these three things, the job is a breeze. It took us an hour and a half to do the drivers side. Once we had everything figured out the passenger side took 30 minutes flat. Note, you cannot access both of the upper shock mounting nuts from the trunk of the car. You have to pull the rear seat out of the car to access the farthest forward nut Pull the base of the rear seat, then pull the back of the seat out of the car. There’s an access hole covered with insulation rubber on the far left and far right. You’ll see what I mean when you pull the seat. Also you will need to have the camber of the rear tires adjusted upon completion of installation. Inspect your ball joints while you have the rear suspension disassembled too. Once you’re that far into it, it only makes sense to handle everything else at the same time.”

1991-1996 Buick Park Avenue Rear Air Suspension Conversion Kit (CADR2) Review Lewis Moore

Repairing the rear Dynaride (air suspension) requires a position sensor ($460, if you can find it), compressor and air shocks. Total cost about $1300. Can’t use standard shocks, as springs are not stiff enough and will bottom out with rear seat passengers. The Strutmaster conversion has extra springs and works fine for about 1/3 the cost.

1987-1999 Pontiac Bonneville Rear Air Suspension Conversion Kit (CADR2) Review Kia B

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.
