I purchased the XN44-F3; XN44-R3 kit to replace my air suspension. Installation took me 3-1/2 hrs. I am pretty tooled up so had everything I needed. Instructions said spring compressors not required, I recommend them. Make sure you know how to disconnect ball joints. The new springs sagged and I will look for spacers to raise the vehicle back up to a more acceptable height. The ride is the same as stock. One break in problem I had was turning while hitting a bump I would get a loud squelch noise. I think it was from the paint on the spring contact points. It no longer makes the noise once everything broke in. There is no "Home" solution to turn off the Air Bag warning system. You have to take your vehicle to Ford and have them reset your computer. Note: before you start the swap, remove the rear axel sensors so you don't ruin them. Overall, I am very happy with this kit and knowing that I do not have to worry about the air suspension going flat randomly.

The ride is much more...

My rear air suspension failed just as I'm about to leave for Maine pulling a trailer. After seeing part costs, I decided to look for an alternative and that's how I found your company. Thank you for having what I needed. After a little research and seeing your video, I made the decision to switch to your strut system before even knowing what the problem was. I haven't driven very far since the repairs were completed but I can tell the ride is much more stable than before.
Mandy was very helpful and also knew the best lobster place in Maine so thank her again for me.
