Why Choose Strutmasters Instead Of Those Other Guys
The original air suspension system on the 1997-2002 Ford Expedition 2WD is made up of assorted parts that must always function in unison. If one part is out of sync, the whole system goes bad. Strutmasters’ air to non-air suspension conversion kit is an affordable and high-quality direct replacement alternative to dealership repair. This kit, manufactured in the USA, includes two front shocks, two rear shocks, and two rear Eibach springs. Repair enthusiasts appreciate that the kit is installed in as little as one hour per wheel. Detailed instructions and installation videos available online save our customers time, frustration, and a lot of money. A closer look at the cost difference between an air replacement and a non-air suspension conversion kit will shed light on just how much the Strutmasters kit can save you. Look at these three prices: that of repairing the air suspension system at the Ford dealer, that of installing aftermarket air suspension parts on the Expedition piece-by-piece, and that of eliminating the faulty air ride for good by installing a Strutmasters rear suspension conversion kit. Strutmasters is proud to offer world-class customer service; our ASE certified technicians are always on hand to answer any bad suspension questions you may have.
How Do I know If My Expedition Air Suspension is failing?
Look for these common signs of a leaking or failed air suspension system on the 1997-2002 Ford Expedition 2WD. Early detection is the key to avoiding suspension total failure when a bad suspension is first suspected. The most obvious sign to identify is a sudden difference in ride height from the front to the rear end of the Expedition. Typically, with this model, the rear end will sag while the front end remains inflated. This lends the Expedition the appearance of “squatting” down, low to the ground, in the rear. An illuminated suspension warning light on the dashboard is another obvious red flag indicator. Listen to the Expedition’s air compressor. If it has stopped working or is running too long (longer than 15-20 seconds), a bad suspension may have caused it to wear out. The air springs may need replacement if any cracks are visible (these are caused by dry rot). While repair options are available, the Expedition owner will want any of these problems fixed promptly.

Suspension Components List
The 1997-2002 Ford Expedition 2WD is built with the following suspension components:
1997-2002 Ford Expedition 2WD 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 Ford Expedition 2WD 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 Ford Expedition 2WD 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 Ford Expedition 2WD 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 Ford Expedition 2WD 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 Ford Expedition 2WD 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 Ford Expedition 2WD 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 Ford Expedition 2WD 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 Ford Expedition 2WD 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.

“I placed an order today ,number 19235, with your company. I am an Aviation Mechanic Workleader, but a little lost on my truck sometimes. I wasn’t sure about what questions to ask or exactly what I wanted or needed. The salesperson, Fred, was super friendly and extremely knowledgeable and it was a pleasure to speak with him. I am sure you are glad to have him on your team. Would love to have 10 like him on mine. Made this decision much easier. Can’t wait to install my new equipment on my truck.
Thanks for the Superior service.

I appreciate Strutmasters prompt processing and shipment of my order. We have installed the products and all is well at this point. I’d like to thank you and your staff for the highest level of customer service and I intend to recommend Strutmasters products to family and friends.
This was everything it was advertised to be. Great ordering experience, great customer service, and excellent instructions. Billed as… “if you can do brakes you can do this” .. .as it turns out, I think brakes are harder! Thanks!
Our delivery was right on time. it took me about 45min to install the kit on our expedition. The difference it made was amazing. It was like going from driving a school bus to driving a sports car. again thank you very much.
