long-icon-questionWhy Choose Strutmasters?

Why choose the Conversion Kit over replacing the air suspension system on your 1999-2003 Ford Windstar?

On this page we show you three different prices: that of repairing your air suspension system at the Ford dealership, that of installing aftermarket air suspension parts on your Ford Windstar, and that of getting rid of the faulty air ride assorted parts for good and installing a brand new Strutmasters suspension conversion kit for the rear end of the Windstar. The low price of the conversion kit is what usually seals the deal for customers choosing between an air vs non-air suspension system. This kit includes two rear Eibach springs, the highest quality in the industry. The kit gets rid of the dependency on expensive air suspension parts working in sync for good. The kit is loved by DIYers because it is installed in about one hour per wheel and the suspension warning light turns off after about thirty minutes. Save yourself time, money, and frustration for the rest of your Windstar’s life and convert today.

long-icon-xIs Your Suspension Failing?

How do I know if my 1999-2003 Ford Windstar Air Suspension is failing?

You can properly diagnose a leaking or failed air suspension system on your 1999-2003 Ford Windstar by looking for these frequently seen signs. The most noticeable is a sudden uneven height difference on different sides of the Windstar. Rear vs front, left vs right, it doesn’t matter. You’ll know it when you see it. You want to catch a suspension when it is going bad before total failure sets in. Typically the rear will fail first in this vehicle, making the Windstar look like it is squatting down low to the ground. Confirm a failed suspension with an illuminated suspension warning message on the instrument panel. Your air springs may need replacement if you see cracks caused by dry rot. Lastly, if the air compressor runs for too long (longer than 15-20 seconds at a time) then a bad suspension may have caused it to wear out. You will want any of these symptoms fixed ASAP.

long-icon-gearVehicle Components

What kind of suspension does my 1999-2003 Ford Windstar have?

The 1999-2003 Ford Windstar is built with the following suspension components:

1999-2003 Ford Windstar Air Struts (x2)- struts that contain an air bladder whose dampening capabilities is controlled by the suspension control module; these have two functions. They connect the wheel of a vehicle to the driving surface in order to reduce the effects of vertical travel on a rough surface which controls the bounciness, and therefore comfort, of a vehicle. They also help maintain the vehicles correct ride height, especially whenever the amount of load put onto the vehicle changes.

1999-2003 Ford Windstar 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.

1999-2003 Ford Windstar Shock Absorbers (x2)- a 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.

1999-2003 Ford Windstar 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.

1999-2003 Ford Windstar 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.

1999-2003 Ford Windstar 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.

1999-2003 Ford Windstar 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.
