The 1992-1999 Oldsmobile Eighty-Eight (88) is built with the following suspension components:
1992-1999 Oldsmobile Eighty-Eight (88) 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.
1992-1999 Oldsmobile Eighty-Eight (88) 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.
1992-1999 Oldsmobile Eighty-Eight (88) 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.
1992-1999 Oldsmobile Eighty-Eight (88) 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.
1992-1999 Oldsmobile Eighty-Eight (88) 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.
1992-1999 Oldsmobile Eighty-Eight (88) 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.
1992-1999 Oldsmobile Eighty-Eight (88) 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.
1992-1999 Oldsmobile Eighty-Eight (88) Suspension Control Module- a computer which is responsible for the operations of the air suspension system and maintaining the vehicles correct ride height.
1992-1999 Oldsmobile Eighty-Eight (88) 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
Early diagnosis of a leaking air suspension system is critical to avoiding total failure. Look for these classic indicators of a bad suspension system in the 1992-1999 Oldsmobile Eighty-Eight, before it's too late and total failure sets in. A sudden uneven height variance between different sides of the Eighty-Eight is commonly seen. There may be one sagging end, one inflated end, a shifting lean from side to side, or a ‚Äúsquatting down‚Äù appearance. These height imbalances should be fixed immediately before they wear out the air compressor. If the air compressor runs too often and stops working then suspension failure will progress. An illuminated suspension warning light on the dashboard will confirm suspension failure. A repair or replacement is necessary at this point.
The parts that make up the air suspension system on the 92-99 Oldsmobile Eighty-Eight must always function in unison. If one component breaks, the system stops working. Strutmasters' air to non-air suspension conversion kit permanently eliminates this faulty reliance. The kit, manufactured in the USA, includes two pre-assembled coilover struts that can be installed in one hour per wheel with just a few bolts each. DIYers love the easy to follow detailed instructions and online installation videos. ASE certified experts offer technical support over the phone if further help is needed. The quality parts are guaranteed by Strutmasters' 1-year warranty. But aside from top-notch customer service and excellent quality, the low price seals the deal for most Eighty-Eight owners. The kit costs considerably less than dealership direct replacement and individual part replacement.
