Why Choose Strutmasters?
Why choose the Conversion Kit over replacing the air suspension system on your 1997-2002 Lincoln Navigator (4WD)?The assorted parts that make up the original air suspension system of the 97-02 Lincoln Navigator 4x4 must all work together in sync, or else the system doesn’t function properly. This can get expensive because multiple trips to the Lincoln dealership for repair does not come cheap. We built this air to non-air suspension conversion kit, FX1RB, to eliminate this problem for our customers. The kit saves time, frustration, and a ton of money. This kit includes two Eibach coil springs that delete the faulty airbags and two OEM-style replacement rear shocks. Our customers tell us the main reason they made the switch when choosing between an air vs non-air suspension system, is the low price. Scroll up to review our cost comparisons of your three options: that of repairing the air suspension system at the Lincoln dealer, that of installing aftermarket air suspension parts on the Navigator piece-by-piece, and that of getting rid of the air ride headache for good by installing a Strutmasters conversion kit today. One look at the savings and you’ll know why our products have such great customer reviews.
Is Your Suspension Failing?
How do I know if my 1997-2002 Lincoln Navigator (4WD) Air Suspension is failing?If you notice your 1997-2002 Lincoln Navigator is no longer meeting and maintaining its proper ride height, it may have a failed or leaking air suspension system. You want to diagnose a bad suspension before it goes on too long and total failure sets in. The most noticeable sign is a sudden uneven height difference between different sides of the Navigator. Typically with this vehicle the rear end will sag but the front end will look inflated- this is because the front of this Navigator (the 4x4) is held up with a metal torsion bar. One of the more obvious indicators of a failed suspension is an illuminated suspension warning light on the instrument cluster. Perhaps other vehicle components wear out- the air compressor, for example, may stop working. Or, it may run too often, making it very loud and noisy. You’ll want any of these problematic symptoms fixed- a repair or direct replacement may be necessary to get your ride height back to factory settings.
What kind of suspension does my 1997-2002 Lincoln Navigator (4WD) have?
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) 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 Lincoln Navigator (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 Lincoln Navigator (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 Lincoln Navigator (4WD) Torsion Bar- Adjustable horizontal bar on the front of the vehicle that holds the vehicle off the ground.
1997-2002 Lincoln Navigator (4WD) Dryer- prevents moisture build-up inside of air suspension parts.
1997-2002 Lincoln Navigator (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.
