Is Your Suspension Failing? Ready to Order
How do I know if my 1997-2002 Ford Expedition Air Suspension is failing?
There are a few signs you need to look for when attempting to diagnose if your air suspension is going bad or leaking on your 1997-2002 Ford Expedition 4WD. The most noticeable is a sudden uneven height difference between different sides of the Expedition. If the suspension is failing or has failed, then the front and rear of the vehicle will be at different heights. Typically with the Expedition the rear fails first so the entire body looks like it is squatting down lower than usual at the rear end. The rear will be sagging while the front remains inflated. The vehicle won’t be able to maintain its proper ride height. An illuminated suspension warning light on the instrument cluster also indicates suspension total failure. If the air compressor has stopped working or is running too long (longer than 15-20 seconds maximum), a bad suspension may have caused it to wear out. Also, the rear air springs will need replacement if you notice visible cracks from dry rot.
Why Choose Strutmasters?Ready to Order
Why choose the Conversion Kit over replacing the air suspension system on your 1997-2002 Ford Expedition?
The 1997-2002 Ford Expedition has served you well, but the assorted parts that make up the air suspension system are faulty and can be expensive to repair at the dealership. Usually, each part needs to work together in sync, or else the suspension malfunctions. We created a kit that can help you get rid of this dependency on the faulty original air suspension system for good. Our air to non-air suspension conversion kit for the Ford Expedition includes two front coilover shocks, two rear Eibach springs, and two rear shocks. DIYers love the kit because it saves them time- the kit is installed in about one hour per wheel. The kit saves frustration- never deal with a failed air suspension system again. But it also saves a lot of money- in fact, most of our customers tell us they chose the conversion kit because of the low price when choosing between an air vs non-air suspension system. Scroll up to look at our price comparison of three different scenarios: that of repairing the air suspension system at the Ford dealer, that of installing aftermarket air suspension parts on the Expedition piece-by-piece, and that of eliminating the air ride headache for good and installing a brand new Strutmasters coilover suspension conversion today. Your wallet will thank you!

What kind of suspension does my 1997-2002 Ford Expedition have?
The 1997-2002 Ford Expedition 4WD is built with the following suspension components:
1997-2002 Ford Expedition 4WD 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.
1997-2002 Ford Expedition 4WD Coil Springs (x2)- Coil springs hold the vehicle up but be careful, they are rated for and designed to work with the rest of the suspension system, so when you change air shocks to passive shocks, then you will need a different rated coil spring that works well with the new type of shocks.
1997-2002 Ford Expedition 4WD Rear Gas 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.
1997-2002 Ford Expedition 4WD 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.
1997-2002 Ford Expedition 4WD 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.
1997-2002 Ford Expedition 4WD 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.
1997-2002 Ford Expedition 4WD 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.
1997-2002 Ford Expedition 4WD 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.
1997-2002 Ford Expedition 4WD 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.

“We would not recommend any the kit on the market. i just finished installing this kit on a customers truck. follow the link to see our before and after pictures:
“1/19/2010- I just installed this kit in my suv. The ride is much better and I don’t hear the pump runing any more. There is no bounce from sagging air shocks and the ride height it back to original. This was not an easy job but most garage guys should be able to handle it. A spring compressor for the rear is a must and for the front it better to drop the lower control arm. Mine is a 97 and from the north east. I purchased the front & Rear
conversion kit only. I should have purchased the full kit with the ball joints and controll arms. The salt has eaten it all up. I do suggest a BIG can of luquid wrench to spray all bolts prior to doing the job. I am very happy with the sales people and this product.”
I purchased the kit and with the help of a buddy we were able to jack and secure the vehicle; remove all the old necessary items; install the shocks and springs on the rear in about 2.5 hours. The only “problem” we encountered was on the left rear (drivers side) upper shock bolt was a bit difficult to access for removal and re-installation, which added an additional 30 minutes time total to the total job. Over all it was not too bad to do yourself. It took another 45 minutes for the 2 front shocks, including jacking and securing and removing and installation of the two new (standard shocks). Over all it was not that bad to do.
Other than that, your staff was courteous, helpful, knowledgeable and your service was great, Thanks for all you did with this order. Randy
Uneventful. Arrived on time. Two Hours to install. Expedition looks and rides good.
