The 2002-2004 Oldsmobile Bravada is built with the following rear suspension components:
2002-2004 Oldsmobile Bravada Air Springs (x2) - commonly referred to as air bags, a plastic and rubber bag that uses pressurized air as a cushion to support the weight of the vehicle. These are the number one cause of all air suspension leaks. All air springs all go bad at about the same rate. If one is leaking, the others will not be far behind. For a proper repair, all of them need to be replaced at the same time.
2002-2004 Oldsmobile Bravada Shock Absorbers (x2) - has metal tubing filled with gas-charged hydraulic fluid in order to dampen vibration and reduce bounciness caused by rough road surfaces.
2002-2004 Oldsmobile Bravada 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.
2002-2004 Oldsmobile Bravada Air Lines- tubes that run from a compressor to the air which carry pressurized air to the air bags in order to adjust the height of the vehicle, respectively.
2002-2004 Oldsmobile Bravada Solenoids (x2) - 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.
2002-2004 Oldsmobile Bravada Compressor Assembly- 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 air springs 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.
2002-2004 Oldsmobile Bravada Dryer- prevents moisture build-up inside of air suspension parts.
2002-2004 Oldsmobile Bravada Suspension Control Module- a computer which is responsible for the operations of the air suspension system and maintaining the vehicle's correct ride height.
2002-2004 Oldsmobile Bravada 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
If the 2002-2004 Oldsmobile Bravada is unable to reach and maintain its proper ride height, the air suspension may be going bad or leaking. Look for these signs that the suspension system has failed before it‚Äôs too late and total failure sets in. The most noticeable sign is a sudden drop of three to five inches in the rear of the vehicle. Sometimes there is leaning from one side to the other. Also commonly seen is an illuminated suspension warning light or message on the dashboard. If any of these symptoms are present, the vehicle owner will want the suspension fixed promptly. Other major components will wear out if it continues running. For example, if the air compressor has stopped working or is running too often, a bad air suspension is likely to blame. Repair options include replacement of individual parts or direct replacement of the entire system. It‚Äôs important to thoroughly research every option available.
