The 1998-2005 Buick Park Avenue is built with the following suspension components:
1998-2005 Buick Park Avenue Electronic Struts (x4)- 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 Buick Park Avenue's struts, while having coil-springs, use an electronic signal to stiffen or soften the dampening of the strut.
1998-2005 Buick Park Avenue Height Sensors- 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.
1998-2005 Buick Park Avenue Compressor- This vehicle is equipped with one air suspension compressor. The compressor is responsible for pumping up the air springs and shocks. When the air suspension starts leaking, the compressor is forced to run continuously to try and keep the air springs inflated. After a couple of days of running non-stop, the compressor will burn itself out. Replacing the compressor is a timely and expensive project to undertake.
1998-2005 Buick Park Avenue Dryer Assembly- This vehicle is equipped with a dryer assembly. The dryer assembly is responsible for getting moisture out of the air lines. Once the air suspension parts start to leak, moisture will build up throughout the air system. Moisture damages the air suspension components from the inside out. The dryer must be replaced whenever the compressor is replaced to prevent further damage.
1998-2005 Buick Park Avenue Suspension Control Module- This vehicle is equipped with a suspension control module. This module is the brain of the suspension system and it reads all of the signals that are being sent by the height sensors and determines if the vehicle needs to be raised or lowered.
1998-2005 Buick Park Avenue 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
One classic sign that the air suspension system on the 1998-2005 Buick Park Avenue is leaking or going bad is a sudden height variance between different sides of the vehicle. Typically, one end will sag while the other end will remain inflated. This gives the illusion the Park Avenue is ‚Äúsquatting down‚Äù too low to the ground. There may also be a shifting lean from one side to the other. A bad suspension will place excess strain on the air compressor, which will wear out over time. If the air compressor has already ceased working or is running too often then suspension failure is advanced. An illuminated suspension warning light is an obvious indicator that the suspension system should be fixed promptly.
