4. What modifications will I have to make to the vehicle?

Answer: Our conversion kits come with detailed instructions for installation and almost all of our kits include steps on how to bypass any electronics and suspension warning lights.
6. How long will the conversion kit last?
Answer: All Strutmasters conversion kits come with a lifetime warranty. They are designed to last for the life of your vehicle. Our conversion kits eliminate your air suspension problems forever!
7. What makes you better than the competition?
Answer: Some of our competitors use inferior Chinese steel and other Chinese parts. Customers and shops have spoken and prefer the quality and durability of our parts, which are made and assembled in the United States.
Some of our competitors use coil springs off the shelf and modify them for a particular vehicle. Reheating a steel coil spring is very bad news because it makes the spring brittle and leads to failure.
8. What if I don't have the money to convert the entire vehicle?
Answer: Strutmasters understands that you work hard for your money. Our owner, Chip Lofton, knows that vehicles seem to pick the worst possible time to need repair his car failed while on vacation. Therefore, Strutmasters offers two-wheel conversion kits on as many vehicles as possible. We also offer a special savings for customers who convert all four wheels.
9. Why should I convert my suspension if I do not plan to keep the car?
Answer: A Strutmasters conversion kit may help you fall in love with your vehicle all over again! If not, a conversion kit will pay off when you decide to sell it. A vehicle with a good ride sells for more money and you will not be hearing back from the new owner complaining that you sold them a lemon.
