Gmc suspension won't go up

Suspension goes down and up intermittently

Posted by tanyarowland on

  • tanyarowland Mar 16, 2014

    I have read where people recommend regular suspension struts be installed. We have already thought of that. I feel like it is not an air leak. Envoy goes down everyday, and comes back up everyday. (Twice now its taken days). It does come back up eventually. I think its something else. Any ideas?

It is definitely an air leak, could be the hoses or the bags. Needs to be troubleshot.

Could be that you just have a bad sensor on that side they need to be replaced I don't know if there is anybody that can check the sensor itself that is usually the cheapest place to start in that situation

Why am I hearing a low pinging sound in the rear/left suspension in my 92 Chrysler Lebaron when I turn?


Its probably the shock/ strut.. i never worked on one of them cars but usually you can take rear shock/strut out through back seat or trunk. You have buy or rent special tool to keep the spring compressed when taking the strut apart.

I think your problem is in the wheel bearing. It needs to be replaced or just adjusted. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

What is wrong with the air suspension on my town car?


The movement is caused by a loose suspension. Deflated parts will not control body roll and without cushion suspension parts can be bent.

Having to replace only a defective broken part is cheaper than guessing. The air suspension has a diagnostic feature which can pinpoint bad components. A high end diagnostic scanner can hook up to the suspension and tell you what needs replacing.

If only a component needs replacing the cost can be low. Even the air bags can be patched or some will interface with cheaper Ford air suspension. But if things are too expensive some people replace the suspension with regular coil springs. You lose a lot, load leveling and superior ride.

You might Websearch for videos about these repairs.

1998 isuzu amigo 4x4 3" lift front suspension problems no travel verry stiff


if you have lifted the front suspension by 3 inches then that is 3 inches less travel for the shocky piston to move when the suspension goes down. You have probably damaged the piston and shaft of the shocky. Replace with longer travel shockys.

Intermittent springy sound in the rear wheel wheel area but cant be certain. It does not make a difference at what speed or on a smooth or bumpy road. Seems to be less on cool mornings and more as the day...


The sound could be a weathered leaf spring that is making noise when the suspension travels up and down. You can go to a self car wash and use the pressure washer there to spray the undercarriage down blowing out any loose dirt and gravel from the rear springs and then when it has dried put a little bit of wd40 onto the leaf springs where they meet or if its an independent suspension where the coil meets with another at the top and bottom then drive to see if it goes away. If it does then it would be a good idea to look into replacing the springs as they are most likely worn.

I think that my 1998 Cadillac air suspension system is going bad


I had a problem with my '98 Deville. I had a lot of issues with the air shocks and all the other electronic stuff that goes with that. I called the dealer, and they wanted $3500 to fix it!!! I found www.Strutmasters.com and they converted my car to a "passive" suspension, which bypassed that whole computer thing. Now I have a lifetime warranty, and I am VERY satisfied with the ride. The best part is that it only cost $800 and I got all new suspension! I highly recommend them for your vehicle!
