The 2007-2013 Chevrolet Avalanche is built with the following suspension components:
2007-2013 Chevrolet Avalanche Air/Magnetic Shocks (x2)- shocks that contain an air bladder or magnets whose dampening capabilities is controlled by the suspension control module.
2007-2013 Chevrolet Avalanche Coil Springs (x4)- 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.
2007-2013 Chevrolet Avalanche Torsion Bar- Adjustable horizontal bar on the front of the vehicle that holds the vehicle off the groundtorsion bar.
2007-2013 Chevrolet Avalanche 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.
2007-2013 Chevrolet Avalanche 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.
2007-2013 Chevrolet Avalanche 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.
2007-2013 Chevrolet Avalanche 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.
2007-2013 Chevrolet Avalanche 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.
2007-2013 Chevrolet Avalanche Suspension Control Module- a computer which is responsible for the operations of the air suspension system and maintaining the vehicles correct ride height.
2007-2013 Chevrolet Avalanche 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
There are classic signs of a failed or leaking air suspension system to look for in the 2007-2013 Chevrolet Avalanche. Early diagnosis of a bad suspension is the key to avoiding total failure. The Avalanche's inability to reach and maintain its proper ride height is the most noticeable sign of suspension failure. Look for a sudden height difference from one side of the vehicle to the other. Typically, the rear or front end will sag while the opposite end will remain inflated. This gives the illusion the Avalanche is squatting down lower than usual. There may be a shifting lean from one side to the other. In any case, if an imbalance is left unchecked, the air compressor will wear out. Once the air compressor goes bad, it's only a matter of time before the suspension warning light comes on inside the vehicle. At this juncture, suspension failure is advanced and the Avalanche will need a costly direct replacement or repair.
OEM Replacement Cost
+ Rear Shocks ($396/Rear Shocks)
+ Coil Spring ($86/Coil Spring)
+ Compressor and Dryer Assembly ($270)
= TOTAL: Over $1,320 (and that doesnt even include replacing electronic components that are known to fail such as the height sensors).
