Why Choose Strutmasters?
Why choose the Conversion Kit over replacing the air suspension system on your 1997-2000 Ford F 250 Light Duty Pickup Truck?The wide variety of parts that make up the air suspension system of the 1997-2000 Ford F250 must always function in unison. When one part stops working the system refrains from functioning properly. Strutmasters’ unique air to non-air suspension conversion kit eliminates this inconvenient dependency for good. This kit, manufactured in America, includes two rear Eibach springs and two rear gas shocks. The kit is installed in as little as one hour per wheel, saving our customers time and frustration. Never bring your F250 to the dealership again for suspension repair issues! Strutmasters provides top-notch customer service, including a lifetime limited warranty, ASE certified technicians available to answer your questions, installation videos available to view online, and detailed installation instructions that accompany each kit. The relatively low price is a bonus; a closer look at the cost difference between air suspension replacement and a non-air suspension conversion kit will make the savings clear. Review three different prices: that of repairing the air suspension system at the Ford dealer, that of installing aftermarket air suspension parts on the F250 individually, and that of installing a Strutmasters rear suspension conversion kit.
Is Your Suspension Failing?
How do I know if my 1997-2000 Ford F 250 Light Duty Pickup Truck Air Suspension is failing?Early diagnosis of a failed or leaking air suspension system on the 97-02 Ford F-250 Pickup Truck is the key to avoiding suspension total failure. One of the clearest signs indicating a suspension system is going bad is an uneven ride height from one end of the truck to the other. Typically, with the F250, the rear suspension will fail first causing it to sag. The front end will remain inflated. This gives the truck the appearance it is squatting down in the rear end. An illuminated suspension warning message on the dashboard is an obvious red flag indicator that you need your suspension system fixed promptly. Listen to the air compressor- if it has stopped working or is running too long (longer than 15-20 seconds at one time) then a replacement may be necessary. Dry rot can cause cracks in the rear air springs; this is another sign that a suspension repair is needed.
What kind of suspension does my 1997-2000 Ford F 250 Light Duty Pickup Truck have?
The 1997-2000 Ford F 250 Light Duty Pickup Truck is built with the following suspension components:
1997-2000 Ford F 250 Light Duty Pickup Truck Air Springs (x2)- commonly referred to as air bags, a plastic and rubber bag that is fitted on top of the strut that uses pressurized air as a cushion instead of a metal coil spring to hold a vehicle off of the ground and off of its wheels. These are the number one cause of all air suspension leaks. All air springs all go bad at about the same rate. If one is leaking, the others will not be far behind. For a proper repair, all of them need to be replaced at the same time.
1997-2000 Ford F 250 Light Duty Pickup Truck Rear Shocks (x2)- a type of shock absorber; has metal tubing filled with gas-charged hydraulic fluid that is connected to the wheel of a vehicle in order to reduce the effects of vertical travel on a rough surface which controls the bounciness, and therefore comfort, of a vehicle.; the air spring assembled on top of the strut is commonly referred to as an air strut.
1997-2000 Ford F 250 Light Duty Pickup Truck Air Lines- tubes that run from a compressor (air suspension) to the air struts which carry pressurized air to the air bags components in order to adjust the height of the vehicle, respectively.
1997-2000 Ford F 250 Light Duty Pickup Truck Solenoids (x4)- This vehicle is equipped with 4 solenoids. These plastic components connect the electrical connection and lines of suspension components to the suspension control module. The solenoids are responsible for regulating the air pressure in each air spring or air shock. Solenoids are a small piece of the suspension system but they play a big role in how well it functions. If a solenoid is not working properly, it will cause the vehicle to be unlevel and, in turn, cause the compressor to burn out.
1997-2000 Ford F 250 Light Duty Pickup Truck Compressor- This vehicle is equipped with one air suspension compressor. The compressor is responsible for pumping up the air springs and shocks. When the air suspension starts leaking, the compressor is forced to run continuously to try and keep the air springs inflated. After a couple of days of running non-stop, the compressor will burn itself out. Replacing the compressor is a timely and expensive project to undertake.
1997-2000 Ford F 250 Light Duty Pickup Truck Dryer Assembly- This vehicle is equipped with a dryer assembly. The dryer assembly is responsible for getting moisture out of the air lines. Once the air suspension parts start to leak, moisture will build up throughout the air system. Moisture damages the air suspension components from the inside out. The dryer must be replaced whenever the compressor is replaced to prevent further damage.
1997-2000 Ford F 250 Light Duty Pickup Truck Suspension Control Module- This vehicle is equipped with a suspension control module. This module is the brain of the suspension system and it reads all of the signals that are being sent by the height sensors and determines if the vehicle needs to be raised or lowered.
1997-2000 Ford F 250 Light Duty Pickup Truck O-rings- Although they are the least expensive parts of the air suspension, they are responsible for maintaining the seal where all of the air lines connect. Be sure to replace the O-rings when repairing any air suspension system.

I bought the Conversion Kit for my 1999 Ford light Duty F250. The original “air shocks” kept leaking and blowing out. I was just about ready to replace one for the fifth time when I finally found your conversion kit online. I wish I would have found it a few air shocks before. Anyway, the conversion and installation went well. The only problem was getting the bolts off the old shocks off but this was mainly due to how old the truck is and how long they had been on. The kit went on smoothly and I have been satisfied so far. The ride seems maybe just slightly stiffer than with the air shocks but not bad at all. I haven’t put a full load on them yet but am not anticipating any problems. I would recommend the conversion kit to anyone who is frustrated with continually replacing the original, badly designed and expensive Ford air shocks.
