My Air Suspension Keeps Failing. What’s wrong ?
Answer : There are a lot of different reasons that your air suspension
system might be failing. The first thing you need to do is as your mechanic
what the actual problem was and then you will have a better idea as to what
If the problem is the rotting of the airbags the answer could be a faulty
moisture filter. There is more to an
air suspension installation than just the replacement of the suspension
components. A moisture filter is one of the most important parts of the
system because even a little moisture in the lines, which will always occur
with a compressor, can ruin the pump and the airbags. If you are just
replacing the airbags repeatedly then you may want to take a look at the
moisture filter. The same thing goes for repeated failures of air pumps. A
little moisture really messes with the electronics.
If you are experiencing heat damage or friction damage on your lines then
you need to blame the person who performed your air suspension installation.
The lines should be installed in a way that they do not come in contact with
any moving parts, are protected from road debris and are kept away from the
heat of the engine or exhaust system. An improper air suspension
installation is one of the most common sources of problems.
The most important thing you can do is find a technician who you really
trust to do a good job on the air suspension installation. This is one area
where you really do not want to skimp by going to a shady shop. Spending a
little extra money will prevent lots of extra costs in the future, which can
pile up into a total that will far exceed the money you would have spent on
a proper installation in the first place.
