Top 10: 2000-2006 Mercedes S Class Sedan 4 Wheel Air Or Hydraulic Suspension Conversion Kit

Number 8: 2000-2006 Mercedes S Class Sedan 4 Wheel Air Or Hydraulic Suspension Conversion Kit With Light Fix

Now onto number 8 on our top ten conversion kits list, introducing our 2000-2006 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Sedan four-wheel air or hydraulic suspension conversion kit with light fix. This kit has become increasingly popular since we recently lowered the price from $1,599 to $1,099 (for a limited time only)! So save yourself $500 by ordering today!

Known to us as the MS14FM, this conversion kit comes to you with (4) completely custom-built Strutmasters passive gas and hydraulic fluid struts preassembled with Eibach coil springs, dust boots and upper mounts, and a custom-designed module. The module is designed to eliminate any unwanted lights or messages that may appear on your dash when removing OEM electronic suspension components from the vehicle. While it is perfectly fine to purchase and install the kit without the module, more customers have purchased the kit with the module than without it. The variable-rate Eibach coil springs picks your S-Class off the ground, and keeps it moving level. The properties of these particular springs also allow drivers to experience the same handling when cornering as with their original suspension system from Mercedes. This is true for both S-Class sedans that had the air suspension as well as S-Class sedans that had the hydraulic suspension system (also known as the Active Body Control, or ABC, system).

For S-Class owners with the hydraulic suspension system, we have good news….you get to keep and reuse your hydraulic steering pump and reservoir! Let us explain. The S-Class models that came with the ABC system have a hydraulic reservoir and steering pump that is utilized for both power-steering as well as the hydraulic suspension system. Strutmasters gives the owners instructions and tools on plugging the ABC system so that it is not necessary to replace the hydraulic pump or reservoir when installing the conversion kit. Even though our conversion kit is straight forward, the accessibility to the rear strut upper mounts and ABC systems are a little complex, and for that reason we recommend customers take these to a certified mechanic for installation. Don’t have a mechanic or not sure which local shops have experience with our conversion kits? Don’t sweat it…just order this particular kit over the phone by dialing 1-866-597-2397. Speak with one of our Sales Reps and simply ask them “What are the names, locations and phone numbers of experienced mechanics in my area who are familiar with our product?” and our Sales Reps will be able to give you the information you need to make an informative decision on whom you would like to install our kit for you! This kit fits the following S-Class Sedans (click on yours to go to our vehicle-specific page!):

Number 9: 1998-2007 Lexus LX 470 4 Wheel Hydraulic Suspension Conversion Kit

Now let’s visit number 9 on our top ten conversion kits list. Introducing our 1998-2007 Lexus LX 470 four-wheel hydraulic suspension conversion kit.

Known to us as the TF14F, this conversion kit comes to you with (2) passive gas and hydraulic fluid Gabriel shocks for the front, (2) Eibach coil springs and (2) passive gas and hydraulic fluid Gabriel shocks for the rear. Now, some of you may be wondering “What’s the difference between these shocks and my old failing shocks? Weren’t they hydraulic too?” The hydraulic shocks that Lexus installs on these vehicles are electronically controlled. There are a lot of components tied into this original active hydraulic system. The original active hydraulic shocks that were featured on this generation of the LX 470 are designed to work in conjunction with a low torsion-bar setting and weak coil springs in order to help hold the vehicle up as well as provide dampening. In other words, the active hydraulic shocks control both dampening as well as the ride height. This is a major flaw on an engineering level as shocks should only function as dampening devices while the coil springs and torsion bar should hold the vehicle off of the ground. This causes extra stress on the shocks and ultimately causes them to fail. When joined with our rear Eibach variable-rate coil springs and instructions for re-clocking of the front torsion bar, our passive gas and hydraulic Gabriel shocks will be able to provide the dampening you want out of a Lexus without fear of failing shocks and expensive hydraulic systems.

Top 10: 2007-2013 GM Full Size SUV 4 Wheel Air Suspension Conversion Kit

Number 10: 2007-2013 GM Full Size SUV 4 Wheel Air Suspension Conversion Kit With Light Fix Module

Today, we here at Strutmasters are going to start showing you guys our top-selling conversion kits. These conversion kits are the current driving force here at Strutmasters. These kits are our bread and butter, and get the most attention from our customers and from us. So let’s start with the conversion kit on our Number 10 Spot today, introducing our 2007-2013 GM full-size SUV four-wheel air suspension conversion kit with light-fix module.

Known to us as the GC24FM, this beast of a kit comes to you with (2) Monroe struts completely preassembled with upper mounts, dust boots, and Pontotoc coil springs for the front, (2) Eibach coil springs and (2) Gabriel shocks for the rear, and our own custom-made module. The front coilover struts replace those expensive front electronic struts and keep the front of the vehicle at the correct ride-height while simultaneously providing exceptional dampening. The rear Eibach variable-rate coil springs hold the rear of the vehicle level (even when towing or hauling) while allowing the rear gas and hydraulic shocks to provide outstanding comfort and handling. The module is a quick and easy solution to deleting any sort of air suspension message that may appear on the dash as you are removing the active suspension components. While your GM SUV will certainly function without the purchase of the module, our customers prefer not to have a suspension warning message, which, in turn, can make navigating the instrument cluster easier.

Eddie Bauer-stitched leather seats and an enormous cabin is not where Ford drew the line with this home-on-wheels. Ford also added rear air suspension in an attempt to increase towing and hauling performance.

The 1990-2002 Lincoln Town Car is one of the most widely recognizable vehicles in the history of the automobile. Quite often referred to as the “Grandpa Car”, Lincoln really set the standard for comfort with this ride. Don’t let the nickname fool you! With fairly reliable rear air suspension system and front and rear adjustable leather bench seats, it would seem that the Lincoln Town Car did precisely everything in its power to earn that title. It’s no wonder older generations don’t seem too keen on buying newer cars, they really like their comfort and Lincoln Town Car owners really know their stuff!

Get to Know the 1992-2002 Ford Crown Victoria

The 1992-2002 Ford Crown Victoria is one of the most widely recognizable vehicles in the history of the automobile. Known all over the U.S. for their contracts with almost every single law enforcement agency in the country, the site of one of these bad boys will make any driver think twice! Considering all of the gear packed into patrol cars, Crown Vics with air systems fail very quickly. That’s why we here at Strutmasters have experience installing our rear air suspension conversion kits on federal agency vehicles. When purchasing our conversion kit for your Crown Vic, please call and request that we upgrade your shocks to Monroe Gas Magnum shocks for in the rear of the car. The Crown Vics respond much better to faster cornering with these shocks on the rear. This is a must if you have a police cruiser due to the weight!

December’s Tech Tip

Make sure you jack the whole front or rear of the vehicle up when doing a conversion. Don’t lift one wheel at a time. Having an opposite wheel on the ground will work against you in most cases
