Why Choose Strutmasters?
Why choose the Conversion Kit over replacing the air suspension system on your 1997-2002 Lincoln Navigator?If you need a direct replacement of your faulty Lincoln Navigator air suspension system, you have a few options. Our non-air suspension conversion kit is the best option by far, and we will tell you why. As The Suspension Experts, we know the assortment of parts that make up the air suspension system on your Navigator. We created a kit to simplify the situation, getting rid of the dependence on all these parts working properly and in sync in order for your Navigator to have a functioning suspension. Our kit includes two replacement rear shocks, our bundle kit (which is two upper control arms with ball joints, inner and outer tie rod ends, and sway bar end links), two coil-over load adjusting shocks for the front and two Eibach coil springs to delete the airbags in the rear. The parts are high quality and reliable. The kit was designed to save you time, frustration, and a large amount of money. The cost difference is so big, that’s why most of our customers choose the kit over air suspension replacement. Let’s take a look at the 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 dealership, that of installing aftermarket air suspension parts on your Navigator individually, and that of getting rid of the faulty air ride headache and installing a brand new coil spring suspension conversion kit today. Your wallet will be glad you did!
Is Your Suspension Failing?
How do I know if my 1997-2002 Lincoln Navigator Air Suspension is failing?If your 1997-2002 Lincoln Navigator is having a hard time meeting and maintaining its proper ride height, it may be suffering from suspension total failure. Don’t worry, you have options. But you will need to get it fixed, fast. Keep reading to learn more about the common signs of a leaking or failed suspension so that you can get a repair before it’s too late. Often drivers notice the Navigator has a sagging rear end, so the front end looks inflated. Sometimes the Navigator may lean from the left to right side, or vice versa. The Navigator may give the illusion that it is squatting down lower than usual. These all indicate a bad suspension. Check the instrument cluster inside the Navigator. If a suspension warning light or message is illuminated, you may need a repair. Also, check the air compressor for signs that it is no longer working or is running too much (will be very loud and noisy). This is a sign that a bad suspension is causing other components to wear out.
What kind of suspension does my 1997-2002 Lincoln Navigator 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 (x4) - 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.
1997-2002 Lincoln Navigator (4WD) Coil Springs (x2) - the front of the town car already has coil springs, that’s why we not only offer replacements for weakened coil springs in the front, but our conversion kit puts the same, sturdy design on the rear of the vehicle.
1997-2002 Lincoln Navigator (4WD) Height Sensors (x2) - a linkage located near each wheel of a vehicle with any electronic suspension that, either mechanically or electronically, constantly measures the height of the vehicle, and reports this information back to the control module so that the computer can identify if changes in height need to be adjusted accordingly. The ride height sensor is a moving part, and like all moving parts, they will eventually wear out.
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) Solenoids (x2) - usually L-shaped, these plastic components connect the electrical connection and lines of suspension components to the suspension control module on vehicles with active suspension. The solenoid regulates the air pressure for each air spring. Solenoids start to leak as they wear out causing the vehicle to sag or to lean. This will cause the ride height sensor to send a signal to activate the compressor in an attempt to inflate the air suspension and level out the vehicle. This excessive work load will eventually lead to total failure of the compressor.
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.
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.
1997-2002 Lincoln Navigator (4WD) Upper Control Arm- a bar which pivots at both ends and is used at the top of a MacPherson Strut, usually with a lower wishbone.
1997-2002 Lincoln Navigator (4WD) Upper/Lower Ball Joints- bearings that connect control arms to the steering knuckles.
1997-2002 Lincoln Navigator (4WD) Inner and Outer Tie Rod Ends- endlinks for the first and last stage of the steering process.
1997-2002 Lincoln Navigator (4WD) Sway Bar Endlinks- these connect the sway bar to the vehicle in order to redistribute the vehicle’s weight while cornering.

I did the conversion over the weekend and it handles nice and at least i wont have to worry about replacing the air bags or the motor. For the long run i think it was a good investment.
