The 1991-1996 Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight (98) is built with the following suspension components:
1991-1996 Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight (98) Shock Absorbers (x2)- a 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.
1991-1996 Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight (98) Electronic Air Struts (x2)- a type of shock absorber; has 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. The Cadillac Deville struts, while having coil-springs, use an electronic signal to stiffen or soften the dampening of the strut.
1991-1996 Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight (98) 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.
1991-1996 Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight (98) 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.
1991-1996 Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight (98) Solenoids (x4)- usually L-shaped, these plastic components connect the electrical connection and lines of suspension components to the suspension control module on vehicles with active suspension. The solenoid regulates the air pressure for each air spring. Solenoids start to leak as they wear out causing the vehicle 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.
1991-1996 Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight (98) 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.
1991-1996 Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight (98) 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.
1991-1996 Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight (98) Suspension Control Module- a computer which is responsible for the operations of the air suspension system and maintaining the vehicles correct ride height.
1991-1996 Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight (98) 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 failed or leaking air suspension system in the 1991-1996 Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight may cause an inability of the vehicle to reach and maintain the proper ride height. Look for these classic signs of a bad suspension before it's too late and total failure sets in. A sudden uneven height variance between different sides of the Ninety-Eight is commonly seen. Typically the rear or front end will sag. This gives the illusion the vehicle is ‚Äúsquatting down.‚Äù There may be a shifting lean from one side to the other. A suspension warning light will be illuminated on the instrument cluster. The air compressor will run too often and then stop working. The Ninety-Eight owner should have any suspension issue fixed promptly. The longer one postpones a repair, the more expensive it is.
The assorted parts that make up the original air suspension system on the 1991-1996 Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight must always work together. When one part breaks, the rest follow suit. Strutmasters' air to non-air suspension conversion kit permanently gets rid of this reliance. Made in America, the kit includes two pre-assembled coilover struts that can be installed with just a few bolts each. Detailed instructions help customers get the kit installed in about one hour per wheel. Online installation videos provide extra assistance. The quality parts are backed by Strutmasters' 1-year warranty. Lastly, the cost of the kit is a fraction of dealership direct replacement and individual part replacement. This coilover suspension conversion kit saves Ninety-Eight owners time, frustration, and money when the air suspension system goes bad.
