How Do I know If My Navigator Air Suspension is failing?
There are common signs of a failed and/or leaking air suspension in your 2003-2006 Lincoln Navigator. The most noticeable is a sudden uneven height difference between different sides of the Navigator. This may look like sagging, perhaps from front to back, or leaning, from one inflated side to the other. Sometimes, the entire Navigator looks like it’s squatting down lower than usual. If your Navigator is no longer reaching and maintaining its appropriate ride height, it might have a bad suspension. Other signs to look for include: a suspension warning light or message on the instrument panel, or a non working air compressor (not working at all, or too noisy and overworked). You will want to repair your suspension ASAP before other components on the Navigator wear out. Worst case scenario- you may need a replacement if you have suspension total failure.

Suspension Components List
The 2003-2006 Lincoln Navigator is built with the following suspension components:
2003-2006 Lincoln Navigator Air Springs (x4)- 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.
2003-2006 Lincoln Navigator Struts (x4)- 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.
2003-2006 Lincoln Navigator Height Sensors (x4)- 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.
2003-2006 Lincoln Navigator 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.
2003-2006 Lincoln Navigator Solenoids (x4)- 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.
2003-2006 Lincoln Navigator Compressor- 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.
2003-2006 Lincoln Navigator Dryer Assembly- used to keep moisture out of air lines and air springs in order to prevent freezing and internal cracking of these parts. Once air suspension starts leaking, moisture will build-up throughout the air system. Moisture damages the air suspension from the inside. The dryer will need to be replaced in order to eliminate the moisture and prevent any further damage.
2003-2006 Lincoln Navigator Suspension Control Module- a computer which is responsible for the operations of the air suspension system and maintaining the vehicleâs correct ride height.
2003-2006 Lincoln Navigator 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.

Real Customers, Real Reviews

It’s been about 3 weeks now since I installed the conversion kit on my Navigator. I did it myself in my driveway. It was relatively simple, however I do not recommend doing this without a friend. It was a little difficult to do on my own with *limited* tools. Took me about 7 hours with a few issues that slowed me down. With a friend and the proper tools this can be done in less than four hours I’m sure.
The ride has significantly improved since day 1 of the install now (pretty stiff before they settle). It is a great ride now, it’s not as quiet as the air ride, but I can’t even hardly notice a difference in ride quality. Now I never have to worry about my failing compressor and the time it would take to air up my suspension, or the few times my fronts were riding on the bump stops.
I highly recommend anyone contemplating this kit buy it and get it done before your air ride inevitably fails.
“Very good service from the representative that I spoke with on the phone. Parts arrived in a couple of days, very nice service for ground delivery. The only problem, is one of the boxes arrived open, hopefully nothing fell out thanks. Parts going on this weekend. Thanks”
“Just bought this my 2005 Navigator. MAN WHAT a DIFFERENCE. Can’t believe how awesome my Navi rides. I love the piece of mind of not worrying about my air ride and the red springs look cool. Thanks Strutmasters!”
“Let me tell you my family felt like we had bought the car all over again. The excitement of driving and riding in the car with a smooth ride again was awesome, to say the least. I am so glad we did this. Will be back with you again soon.
03 Lincoln Navigator”
Installed the strutmaster kit on my 2003 Lincoln Navigator and my truck rides great I can’t tell any difference between these and the air ride. It took me a little over four hours to complete installation. My compressor went out and one of the front air bags and I didn’t want to replace and then have another one fail. Great product.
The shop that I took the kit to were blown away with the ease of design and engineering. They had never heard of your company and said they would contact you to be a dealer. Here in Michigan we have some of the worst roads in the country. Thanks for a great product. My Expedition loves you guys.
“Well, I didn’t want to do this at first, as sooo many people that did the air ride conversion have been unhappy, but none of them have used strutmasters kit… if they have, they would say it is nearly the same as the air ride… I wish I would have just done this from the start instead of wasting the money I did on the air ride system, which never did get fixed correctly.
I would say it’s about 85% the same – but the trade off is that I will never have to worry about waking up in the morning, going out to my truck, and have it sitting low, and not pumping up…
All in All, it was a wise choice – I didn’t like that they charged me a $5 handling fee and didn’t tell me about this, (thus the 4 out of 5 stars) but as I say, you can’t beat these… they are heavier than I expected in the boxes, etc… so that was a nice surprise! The springs are beefy, and I love the red power coated paint job!
I purchased a set of Struts after having the air ride go out on my Lincoln Navigator. This is my 3rd one so I know the money pit it can become taking it to the dealer. The kit was easy to install after tracking down the nessecary tools but all in all saved me over $1200 over taking it to the dealer. My truck rides better than new. I have the kneel down function and Mike in customer support was outstanding. Very knowledgable and eager to help. If you need to replace that destined to fail air ride, this is the solution. I have my friend so impressed he is replacing his and it isnt even broken.
Thank you Strutmasters! I have had issues with my Air Suspension system for 3 years now and $3,000 dollars later the mechanics still cannot pin point the issue. I removed the air struts and replaced them with your conversion kit. The instructions and videos made it easy. I am not a mechanic, but your videos made it real easy. thank you so much. The Nav rides great now and no more worries about the suspension. Awesome product. You have a customer for life.
I installed conversion kit on 2004 Eddie Bauer Expedition with 100,000 miles. Front end conversion was good. After conversion rear end is low and has soft “springy” ride. I tried to get help from Strutmasters to fix the problem but they said the height was in the correct range even though the rear sat lower than the front. The more we drive the vehicle the softer the rear suspension gets. I’m now trying to decide how to fix the problem as the expedition now handles poorly on corners and when you hit any bumps. I would not recommend this product.
It’s been 3 weeks since I had the kit installed and I’m very happy. I should have done this years and thousands of dollars ago. Thank you Strutmasters for a great product. I will be recommending you guys to all my friends that have air suspension problems.
We received the conversion kit a few days ago. We had the work done the day they arrived, so I was unable to take pictures. Everything went well and we are surprised how quick and easy they are
to change out.

“Just had my air suspension replaced with the “”2003-2006 Lincoln Navigator 4-Wheel Air Suspension Conversion Kit (2WD & 4WD)”” I am so relieved, the ride is great, and the quality of the struts were great (according to my mechanic and from what I saw)! Delivery took about a week and the tech service, and Dustin & Vito were more that helpful!
Living in the Denver area, every time the temp would drop below 20 degrees so would the front end … when it did it while I was on the interstate at 65 mph it got my attention … started to get the “”bring it back in if it does it again”” story from the dealership … what a pain — Thanks Dustin, I am very happy with my new “”ride”” :0)
I used the conversion kit for my Ford 2003 Expedition, and it was easy and only took me and a buddy about 2.5 hours to do all four wheels. The ride is as good as the air suspension, and i dont have to worry about any more broken bags. the cost of doing all four wheels is less than doing 2 of the air bags, and I had already replced the compressor once. The height of the vehicle is approx1-2 inches higher than the air suspension, but i like the higher look. Thanks strutmaster- well worth the money.
Good product. Easy install. Took about 5 hours. I would recommend this product to eliminate the air ride.
“Just wanted to let you know car is riding great. Wanted to let you know I had a company here named, Lincoln Land, put them on for me. The head mechanic stated he was impressed with the Quality and Workmanship of your product. He had never used your products before, that says something to me. And let me tell you that is one busy place for Lincolns. Thanks again, you saved me close to $3,000 dollars.

Did the install in one easy day by myself in my garage. No air tools, only tool I had to go get was a large metric socket (30mm) I think. Way easier then the install I did on my Mark VIII!! And the ride seems about the same, just got back from a 1200 mile trip and it road fine, even through the WV turnpike at 75 mph. I’m currently looking for another Nav with air ride issues to buy cheap and do an install on. Love this car.
“Many thanks to you guys at STRUTMASTERS !!!! My wife’s 2003 Lincoln Navigator was diagnosed with Air Bag Cancer. I checked everywhere for a solution because my wife LOVES her car. Every solution form Lincoln said $$$$ which we could not afford. I began to put my fingers to the Cyber Net Keyboard for solutions and found your website! The video made it look a little bit TOO easy (if you can do brakes . . .. I checked the BBB for their complaint issues and found them to be in good standings. I was a little hesitant to order over the internet, so I used a debit card and WHOLLA! I ordered it Sunday and it came Wed afternoon! I had all the tools EXCEPT the one to remove the large bolts from the bottom Strut, so I enlisted the aide of my Mechanic Mr. Chase of Bernard’s Auto of Bklyn, NY who installed all 4 for a minimal price. Everything (including the Struts) came to UNDER $1000!!!! So if your tired of chasing the Dealership Rainbow for a solution, try STRUTMASTERS for a cure to Air Bag Cancer and give your ride a new LIFT on life.

Customer service was great, thanks Brad and Evette for all your help…..i was very skeptical about purchasing this kit because of the different reviews good and bad. Well I purchased it for my 03 lincoln navigator with 24″ rims and I love it, I can’t tell the difference from the ride before the kit, one thing I will say is that I think the big tires made the kit look better , if your tires are smaller than 24″ it might look funny(which was one review I read)but not so sure. I’m glad I didn’t get the lift kit because it would have made my truck sit up too high and look weird
“So far so good ! Had Firestone install the set about 3 weeks ago. This weekend we’ll take our 3rd 600 mile road trip through the hills of Arkansas without worrying about the suspension.
I know everyone is entitled to their own opinion but sometimes they your keep lies to themselves. The first review that talks about the ride is not great and these struts are not worth it is a complete lie. I just installed my struts on my 04 Lincoln Nav and I swear it is the best thing I have done to my SUV. The ride feels just like the air ride suspension and I put that on my life. I am so impressed with how my truck rides, it feels like I just bought the truck off the showroom floor. Was not hard at all, all you need are the right tools and a little muscle and you will have no problem getting it done. I would say if you can change oil you can change your struts, Strutmasters you truly are masters of strut and I salute you!!!!!
(Product Code: -XN44-2-4) As always Strutmasters gets me the right parts and fast shipping even to me in Hawaii.Have only used Strutmasters for my company the last 8 years for all suspension kits.Jay is a super great and knowledgeable person.Kits even get better after time this one came with Eibach coils.Highly recommend Strutmasters to anyone looking for suspension components. Mahalo to the entire Strutmaster family for making quality kits at a great price and proper fit always.
I ordered the complete kit for my Lincoln Navigator. Havent installed it yet due to weather but the products are extremely heavy duty and high quality. The only recommendation I have for Strut Masters is possibly changing the color from red to black on the coil springs. Red stands out inside the fender well and on an all black vehicle, its slightly unsightly.
“I got the Strutmasters Conversion kit and I am Extremely Happy with the results. Its only been 3 days of having them on, but the anxiety of wondering when and how your vehicle is going to drop was unbearable and StrutMasters has relieved that anxiety.
I did a lot of research on the Air Suspension problems with my Navigator. Ford kept wanting me to come in for a $150.00 diagnosis, saying it would probably only be a $300 – $500 part replacement to preserve my wonderful air ride, and that I wouldn’t be happy with a conversion. No Way, No How.
Just Read on the internet, people spending $1000’s each year to get something replaced on their Air Suspension. Once it starts to go you will be forever troubleshooting the problem.
I only had the Air Suspension problem for 3 weeks, I could not let my family’s life’s be at risk any longer.
Do yourself a favor and get the Conversion kit, Not a Penny wasted.
As the subject states however I was pleasantly surprised. The truck sits about 2″ higher which I think is normal. I believe it was riding too low to begin with do to all the issues I was having with the air ride. I am very happy with the handling and ride quality. I did the install myself and if you plan to do so make note: besides a good standard socket set including 15mm, 19mm, you will need a 30mm socket and wrench to get the coil bolt off. Also a good floor jack to raise this heavy truck and two heavy duty jack stands. A impact gun would be a big help for you as well to get the bolts off. I did the back two first then did the front two. The back went it super easy, the front I had to get the floor jack under the coil and jack it up just a tad to line up bolt hole but it was not a big deal otherwise. I am glad I took this route no more worrying about a bottomed out truck especially when I am up North somewhere towing my enclosed trailer with a bunch of ATV’s in the back.
Just Installed a full set of replacements for my 03 Navigator. Very pleased!!!! Is it as smooth as the air ride, no. But it sure is a lot cheaper in the long run and not a bad ride at all! I have took Pictures from before, during and after. feel free to email me for em. [email protected]
Excellent quality & great handling. Would recommend to anyone as alternate to anyone considering repairing/replacing their air suspension. A+
“Both Livernois Vehicle Development and Ford Motor Company want to thank you for the time you spent in helping develop a crucial spring that was required for the Navigator Boom Vehicle that is currently in development.
Your contribution was a major factor in the success of this project. Your time and dedication are very much appreciated.

My husband is unemployed and broke, he was a very happy man when he finish the job. Save us thousand of dollars and he is now worry free from air air suspension going bad. Thank you strutmaster
Yesterday UPS arrived around 10:00 with my new Navigator suspension. I have spent over $6,000 with the local Lincoln dealership in the past 5 years fixing the suspension issues. I delivered the car and the new Strutmasters system to my mechanic. At 4:00 he called me to say I no longer had a “Lowrider”. He charged me $226.00 to do the install and so problem solved PERMANENTLY for less than $1,000.00. Car rides better than ever and my wife is thrilled. THANK YOU STRUTMASTERS! Your postcard is one piece of “junkmail” I am glad I looked at.
