Why Choose Strutmasters?
Why choose the Conversion Kit over replacing the air suspension system on your 1997-2002 Lincoln Navigator 4WD?
We are The Suspension Experts. We have been studying the faulty air suspension of the Lincoln Navigator 4WD for many years and have come up with a quality direct replacement solution. It’s a conversion kit, and no modifications are needed to install it. The kit eliminates the need for the assortment of parts in an air suspension system to function properly and in sync because we have found those parts go bad easily. The kit includes two front coilover shocks and two rear Eibach springs. Our kit is the only one on the market that includes high-quality Eibach springs (see our blog post about it). The kit was created to save the DIYer time, frustration, and a huge chunk of change. Let’s look at the cost difference between choosing an air vs non-air suspension system. On this page we compare three prices: That of repairing your air suspension system at the Lincoln dealer, that of installing individual aftermarket air suspension parts on your Navigator yourself, and that of getting rid of the faulty air ride headache for good and installing a brand new Strutmasters conversion kit for the rear end of the Navigator. Join the rest of our satisfied customers who are glad they chose the conversion kit!
Is Your Suspension Failing?
How do I know if my 1997-2002 Lincoln Navigator 4WD Air Suspension is failing?
Look for these most common signs that the air suspension on your 1997-2002 Lincoln Navigator is leaking, failed, or going bad. You don’t want to wait too long or else all the major components will wear out in turn. If you have suspension total failure the Navigator could slam down to the ground at the smallest bumps in the road. The most obvious sign is a difference in height from the front to the rear end of the Navigator. Usually with a Navigator, the rear will sag but the front will remain inflated. This will make it look like it’s squatting down low to the ground. Also, check the instrument cluster for a suspension warning light or message. If the air compressor has ceased working or is running too long at a time (more than 15-20 seconds maximum) then a repair or replacement may be in order. You have some options but you will want to get it fixed soon. Lastly, check your rear air springs for visible cracks that may have been caused by dry rot. These could pose an issue, as well.
What kind of suspension does my 1997-2002 Lincoln Navigator 4WD have?
The 1997-2002 Lincoln Navigator 4WD is built with the following suspension components:
1997-2002 Lincoln Navigator 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 Lincoln Navigator 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 Lincoln Navigator 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 Lincoln Navigator 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 Lincoln Navigator 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 Lincoln Navigator 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 Lincoln Navigator 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 Lincoln Navigator 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 Lincoln Navigator 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.

I traded a vehicle about a month ago for a 98 lincoln navigator, They told me the bags were flat but seeing how I’ve never had anything with bags i had no clue what they were talking about… lol… I soon found out. The ride home with the rearend sitting on the frame was the worst ride in my life. So I started looking around on how to fix it I’m not mechanically inclined, and i found myself on strutmasters website i ordered the kit for front and back with new shocks and then had to figure out how to install, well after many calls and no more money i had to do it myself remember I’m not mechanically inclined but i tell you it Could’nt have been easier i did the back one day and the front the next and man does it ride like a dream now just want to say thanks to Strutmasters without you all id be in and out of shops spending thousands but now I don’t have to worry about it thank you
