The 2004-2009 Cadillac SRX is built with the following suspension components: 2004-2009 Cadillac SRX 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. 2004-2009 Cadillac SRX 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. 2004-2009 Cadillac SRX 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. 2004-2009 Cadillac SRX 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. 2004-2009 Cadillac SRX 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. 2004-2009 Cadillac SRX 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. 2004-2009 Cadillac SRX 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. 2004-2009 Cadillac SRX Suspension Control Module- a computer which is responsible for the operations of the air suspension system and maintaining the vehicles correct ride height. 2004-2009 Cadillac SRX 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 04-09 Cadillac SRX is unable to reach and maintain its proper ride height, a failed or leaking air suspension system may be to blame. Early diagnosis of a bad suspension is the key to avoiding total failure. Look for a sudden uneven height difference between different sides of the SRX. A sagging rear end is typically seen with an inflated front end. There might be a shifting lean from one side to the other. In either case, an imbalance of this nature will wear out the air compressor. If the air compressor has stopped working already, suspension failure is advanced. At this point, a suspension warning light will illuminate on the dashboard. The SRX owner should get the suspension fixed as soon as a problem is detected, to avoid an expensive direct replacement.
OEM Replacement Cost
'+ Struts ($496/strut) + Coil Springs ($79/spring) + Shocks ($521/shocks) = TOTAL: Over $2,200 (and that doesnt even include replacing electronic components that are known to fail such as the height sensors).
