You car has air ride suspension. The problem may or may not be the air springs, there are no "struts", have a shop check them for leaks.

2003 GMC Envoy air ride suspension won't work

The compressor is 600 bucks. If you can hear it running, then one or more plastic air lines going up to each shock is cracked . The level sensor may not be turning the compressor on. If you have experienced high water or a lot of snow and salt the system needs to be looked at to see what failed.

Strut replacement

jack up rear of car and place on jackstands. remove rear wheels there is two bolts that hold strut to the wheel assembly also unbolt brake line bracket now inside of car is top of strut tower there is a plastic cosmetic cover once removed there are three bolts to be undone. DO NOT LOOSEN CENTER BOLT. strut will drop out with a little manouevering. Use strut spring compressor to remove strut springs. and reinstall on new struts be sure to follow all safety instructions and warnings. autozone rents this tool, or take to shop to have someone do this part of job for you. now installation of strut is opposite of removal. hope this helps

Struts noise?

I would tend to believe it's more likely a worn sway bar bushing or link if it's a rattle or a small clunk, if it's a loud clunk probably a strut, try bouncing he back of the car when parked, if you get the clunk probably a strut if only when driving,turning,braking probably just a bushing on the sway bar

Have a 2002 gmc envoy, i need rear air bags, how much should i expect to pay

I wouldn't waste the time, money and patience replacing the compressor and/or air bags. It normally turns out to be both as they both wear out over time. I've been there and done that. I just had the system converted to "old school" shocks and springs.

All the best,

I have a 2003 GMC Envoy with 114000 miles and hear a squeaking sound mostly when turning. I think it may be a strut. The tire on that side is wearing out on the outside. It is in the front. I have had it...

i would suspect the front strut mounts, 100,000 or 10 years is about all you can expect if you drive like a little old lady. and one does not replace the mounts without replacing the struts as well. however making sure the thing is lubed, such as at ball joints and tie rod ends should not be ruled out before you replace the mounts and struts. those parts are expensive, are labor intensive and an alignment is in order afterwards. look around for some "quik struts" for your car before you pay for separate struts and mounts. the overall labor is lower and you get new coil springs to boot. you may want to shoot the entire load and do them all the way around. that way one alignment this year instead of another one next year when the rear end starts squeaking.

Have to replace a rear strut on my 2000 pontiac grand prix - is this something that I can bolt on myself or is it best to pay the shop rates and have them do it?

if you are handy enough , won't take much couple of sockets and a ratchet, just make sure you drop the axle as low as possible to make the new strut fit in.

How do you replace tailgate struts on a gmc 2006 envoy xl

There should just be metal clips on each end. Use a thin/standard screwdriver and pry out on the clips. They won't come off completey, but just pop out a little ways. Once they do, just pull and wiggle the strut and it should pop off the ball it's snapped on to. To install the new ones, just make sure the new clips are in the "out" position, snap the socket on to the ball and push in on the clip to secure it in place. Hope this helps.
