Why Choose Strutmasters?
Why choose the Conversion Kit over replacing the air suspension system on your 1997-2002 Lincoln Navigator?It can be expensive to bring your Lincoln Navigator to the dealership each time one of the many assorted parts of its air suspension system needs a repair or replacement. We have seen customers spend a fortune bringing their Navigator in three, four, even five times to get different parts of the air suspension fixed. As The Suspension Experts, we knew there was a better solution. Our air to non-air suspension conversion kit is a high quality but affordable direct replacement alternative. This kit includes two rear Eibach springs, one Air Lift 1000 Load Leveling Kit, and one Air Lift manual control air compressor. DIYers love that the kit is installed in about one hour per wheel. Read the positive customer reviews to hear firsthand about how much time, frustration, and money the kit will save you. The low price is usually what seals the deal. Scroll up to take a closer look at the price difference between choosing an air vs non-air suspension system. Up above we compare three costs: that of repairing the air suspension system at the Lincoln dealer, that of installing aftermarket air suspension parts individually, and that of getting rid of the faulty air ride forever by installing a Strutmasters brand new suspension conversion kit for the rear end of the Navigator.
Is Your Suspension Failing?
How do I know if my 1997-2002 Lincoln Navigator Air Suspension is failing?If the air suspension system on your Lincoln Navigator 4WD is going bad or leaking, there are common signs you can identify to properly diagnose how bad the situation is. You want to catch a failed suspension before total failure sets in, as other major components will begin to wear out. The most noticeable sign is a difference in height from the front to the rear of the Navigator. Typically the rear suspension will fail first causing it to sag while the front remains inflated. This gives the appearance of squatting down lower than usual in the rear end. If you see an illuminated suspension warning message on the instrument panel, a repair may be necessary. If you notice visible cracks in the rear air springs, this is caused by dry rot and they will need replacement as well. Lastly, listen to the air compressor. If it is running too long (longer than 15-20 seconds), it may not be working properly.
What kind of suspension does my 1997-2002 Lincoln Navigator 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.
