1997-2002 Cadillac Eldorado Replaced Components
1997-2002 Cadillac Eldorado Electronic 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 Devilles struts, while having coil springs, use an electronic signal to stiffen or soften the dampening of the strut.
1997-2002 Cadillac Eldorado 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 shock absorbers.
1997-2002 Cadillac Eldorado Coil Springs (x2) - 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.
1997-2002 Cadillac Eldorado Air Lines - tubes that run from a compressor (air suspension) to the air struts which carry pressurized air to the air bag components in order to adjust the height of the vehicle, respectively.
1997-2002 Cadillac Eldorado 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 workload will eventually lead to total failure of the compressor.
1997-2002 Cadillac Eldorado 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.
1997-2002 Cadillac Eldorado 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.
1997-2002 Cadillac Eldorado Suspension Control Module - a computer that is responsible for the operations of the air suspension system and maintaining the vehicle's correct ride height.
1997-2002 Cadillac Eldorado 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.
1997-2002 Cadillac Eldorado Suspension Failure Signs
If you think your Eldorado is not meeting and maintaining its appropriate ride height, look for these common signs of a failed or leaking air suspension system before total failure sets in. Once a suspension system has completely gone bad, other major components will wear out. The most noticeable is a sudden uneven height difference between the right and left sides of the Eldorado. Typically the rear end will sag while the front end remains inflated. You may see it lean from one side to the other. If the entire vehicle is squatting down lower than it should be, this is a red flag. A bad suspension is likely if there is an illuminated suspension warning light on the instrument cluster. Lastly, listen to the air compressor. If it has stopped working or is running too often (very loud and noisy), repair or replacement will be necessary.
