The2000-2006 GMC Yukon 1500is built with the following suspension components:
2000-2006 GMC Yukon 1500 Air/Magnetic Shocks (x2)- These shocks feature either an air bladder or magnets which are controlled by the suspension control module to dampen the ride.
2000-2006 GMC Yukon 1500 Coil Springs (x2)- These coil springs are similar to the ones used in standard coilover suspensions. However, they are tuned and rated to work with an active suspension. If you decide to convert to a fully passive suspension you will need coils which are designed to work with your new suspension system.
2000-2006 GMC Yukon 1500 Torsion Bar- This adjustable horizontal bar is located at the front of the vehicle. It holds the front end of the Suburban off of the ground.
2000-2006 GMC Yukon 1500 Shock Absorbers (x2)- These shock absorbers are metal tubes connected to the wheels of your Chevy. They are filled with a gas-charged hydraulic fluid in order to limit the effects that travel over bumpy road surfaces have on the ride and the vehicle itself
2000-2006 GMC Yukon 1500 Air Lines- These hoses connect the compressor to the air struts, carrying air into the air struts in order to inflate them
2000-2006 GMC Yukon 1500 Solenoids (x4)- These plastic components join the electrical and mechanical components of the suspension to the control module. They are responsible for regulating the air pressure in each air strut. As they age, they will begin to leak and lead to rapid failure of the other components in the air suspension, especially the compressor.
2000-2006 GMC Yukon 1500 Compressor- The compressor on the Suburban mechanically generates pressurized air and pumps it out into the air struts. When other components in the air suspension system start to leak or fail, it is usually the compressor that tries to pick up the slack, usually causing it to overwork and shorten its lifetime. It is one of the most critical components of the air suspension and also one of the most expensive to repair or replace.
2000-2006 GMC Yukon 1500 Dryer Assembly- Moisture is one of the leading causes of air suspension damage. Your GMC employs a dryer to keep moisture out of the system. It usually needs to be replaced whenever the compressor is replaced.
2000-2006 GMC Yukon 1500 Suspension Control Module- This small computer oversees the functions of the air suspension system as well as monitors it's overall health, ensuring that the car is maintaining the correct ride height at every point.
2000-2006 GMC Yukon 1500 O-rings- These rubber washers maintain the seals where the air lines connect to each other and the other components. They are small and inexpensive and should be replaced whenever the air suspension is serviced to ensure that the system stays clean and efficient.
