long-icon-questionWhy Choose Strutmasters?

Why choose the Conversion Kit over replacing the air suspension system on your 1997-2002 Ford Expedition (4WD)?

The original assorted parts that make up the air suspension system on the 97-02 Ford Expedition are faulty and must each function in sync, at all times. This can get expensive as most Expeditions require multiple visits to the dealership service center for air suspension repair and replacement parts. As The Suspension Experts, we knew there had to be a better way. We created the air to non-air suspension conversion kit FX1RB to solve these problems when you have a failed suspension system. This kit includes two Eibach coil springs to delete the airbags and two OEM-style replacement rear shocks. We offer the only kit on the market that includes high-quality cold-wound steel Eibach springs. Our customers will attest that the kit saved them time, frustration and money. In fact, the low price is what convinces most of them to make the switch when choosing between an air vs non-air suspension system. Look above on this page where we compare the prices of your three options: that of repairing your air suspension system at the Ford dealer, that of installing aftermarket air suspension parts on your Expedition individually, and that of eliminating the faulty air ride headache forever by installing a Strutmasters new coil spring suspension conversion kit today.

long-icon-xIs Your Suspension Failing?

How do I know if my 1997-2002 Ford Expedition (4WD) Air Suspension is failing?

If you notice your Expedition is not meeting and maintaining its proper ride height, it may have a failed or leaking air suspension system. Look for the common signs of a bad suspension system before it’s too late and total failure renders your vehicle immobile. The most common is a sudden noticeable uneven height difference between different sides of the Expedition. Visibly this looks like the rear end is sagging while the front end remains inflated. This is because the front, in this model, is held up with a metal torsion bar. One obvious red flag is if there is an illuminated suspension warning light on the instrument cluster. If the air compressor has stopped working or runs too often (loud and noisy) then you may be looking at a suspension direct replacement.

long-icon-gearVehicle Components

What kind of suspension does my 1997-2002 Ford Expedition (4WD) have?

The 1997-2002 Ford Expedition (4WD) is built with the following rear 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) Shock Absorbers (x2) - 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.

1997-2002 Ford Expedition (4WD) Air Lines- tubes that run from a compressor to the air which carry pressurized air to the air bags in order to adjust the height of the vehicle, respectively.

1997-2002 Ford Expedition (4WD) Compressor Assembly- creates/sends pressurized to active suspension components. When the air suspension starts leaking, the compressor/pump starts working harder to try to keep the system inflated. By the time air suspension leaks down completely, sitting the vehicle on its tires, the compressor will either have failed or be well on its way to full failure. Buying replacement struts and taking the time to install them only to find out the compressor still needs to be replaced can be very frustrating, time-consuming, and expensive.

1997-2002 Ford Expedition (4WD) Torsion Bar- Adjustable horizontal bar on the front of the vehicle that holds the vehicle off the ground.

1997-2002 Ford Expedition (4WD) Dryer- prevents moisture build-up inside of air suspension parts.

1997-2002 Ford Expedition (4WD) Suspension Control Module- a computer which is responsible for the operations of the air suspension system and maintaining the vehicle’s correct ride height.
