You can defiantly convert from air to springs. I would recommend going to strutmasters.com and taking a look at our conversion kits. these convert you from the airbag to a powder coated American made steel coil spring that is guaranteed to last the life of the car. The kits have everything you need to convert from air to coil springs. I posted the link to the land rover section of the website so you can take a look.

Is it better and cheaper to replace rear air suspension to non-air suspension on a 1997 Cadillac DeVille?


It will run about the same, there is a good web site we deal with that sells conversion kits or the air components needed to repair your car, we use them all the time. There pricing is good and also have all parts needed.
Your car may just need air bags, but have run into many cars that the air bags had been leaking for a while and were left not repaired causing the air compressor to run so much that it overheated and cooked the compressor and relay.This is hard to say on yours without looking at it. if the air shocks air leaking then you will need to start with that and then if the car does not lift then you will need to check the fuse and relay, if there are good or replaced and still no air is made then compressor will need replacing.
http://www.arnottindustries.com/part_CADILLAC_Air_Suspension_Parts_yid6_pid35.htmlthe compressor is 175.00 and the two shocks are 275.00.
I did not see a conversion kit for this car. take a look at site and see if you can locate one. good day.

Rear air ride is flat on 95 deville....what do i


the first thing is the fuses. i've seen many of these that the rear air shocks are bad but customer doesnt know and the pump runs until it burns out,after checking the fuses start the car and listen under the hood for the pump to turn on, if pump turns on then check shocks for leaks, also you would have to make sure the pump is producing air as it runs and the last thing is the level sensor located under the rear of car.

I need new front struts, back air shocks, and a engine mount


If you are looking to replace the shocks on this Deville, you could be looking at a price that you may not like. With all the different components to the air ride system it is a good idea to go with a conversion kit that allows you to get away from the air all together by using a coil spring conversion. Strutmasters offers great kits at a great price with a lifetime warranty. I would rather pay half the price to fix my car and have the parts be warranted than buy expensive parts for the car not knowing its going to fix the problem and have no warranty with it.

Common problem on all air suspension vehicles. It could be that there is a hairline crack in one of the shock bladders or that the pump is just too weak to pump up to it's intended pressure, a sensor or solenoid could also be bad.

Whenever I run into this problem I order a spring conversion kit for that vehicle, it is usually not worth spending $3000+ to repair the suspension.

www.Strutmasters.com sells the best kits, $327.00 for the rear. It also comes with a resistor so that your suspension light is not on.

1997 CADDT DEVILLE-----SHOCKS


You can spend half that money and go with a non air conversion kit from Strutmasters. With these air rides its not for sure that by changing the air shock that you will fix your car. If you car has cracks in the air lines that can cause a big issue too. When we replaced the ride on my moms Deville, it was an easy switch to this non air conversion kit. No more low rider!
