Why Choose Strutmasters Instead Of Those Other Guys
You have an affordable and high-quality option beside direct replacement of the faulty air suspension system at the Ford dealership. We are The Suspension Experts, so we know our stuff. We created a suspension conversion kit that gets rid of dependence on a wide variety of assorted parts functioning properly and in sync. Our kit is a direct replacement, no modifications are needed. The kit includes two front coilover shocks and two rear Eibach springs. The kit is the only one on the market to include high-quality Eibach springs. The kit is installed easily, in about one hour per wheel. It was created with our DIYers in mind. It saves you time and frustration, but our customers love that it saves them a ton of money. Letâs look closer at the difference between the cost of choosing an air vs non-air suspension system. On this page we compare three prices: that of air suspension system repair at the Ford dealership, that of installing individual aftermarket air suspension parts yourself, and that of getting rid of the faulty air ride headache and installing a brand new Strutmasters suspension conversion kit. Join our happy customers who are happy they chose that final option. Your wallet will thank you.
How Do I know If My Expedition Air Suspension is failing?
You would hate to walk outside one morning only to see your 1997-2002 Ford Expedition looks like it’s been slammed down to the ground. Before the suspension experiences total failure, you should check for signs of a leaking or bad air suspension. The most common sign of suspension failure is a suddenly noticeable difference in the height of the front vs the rear end of the Expedition. Usually, the rear will sag but the front will remain inflated, making the Expedition look like it is squatting down. If you have an illuminated warning light or message on the instrument console, a failed suspension is likely. Another symptom to look for is a non-working air suspension compressor (alternatively, it may be running too long. That would be longer than 15-20 seconds at a time). Your rear air springs will need replacement if you see visible cracks. You have options, but you will need to get these things fixed ASAP.

Suspension Components List
The 1997-2002 Ford Expedition 4WD is built with the following suspension components:
1997-2002 Ford Expedition 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 Ford Expedition 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 Ford Expedition 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 Ford Expedition 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 Ford Expedition 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 Ford Expedition 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 Ford Expedition 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 Ford Expedition 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 Ford Expedition 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.

“I am a repeat customer with Strutmasters. This should tell you that I have been pleased with my previous experience. The 96 Lincoln still rides great on the rear replacement springs I bought from you. The ’99 Expedition that I just converted from air to spring ride also rides great.
The parts went on my truck,the truck rides better then ever and it took about 4 hours including unhooking the lite in the dash.I m very very happy with this kit ! Thanks.The stature of the vehicle is even better.
“Thankfully I knew about your product before my air suspension went on the frits…Rear end started sagging ,,,did’nt need to mess with the pricey air parts, ordered your product ,installed it & my problems were gone…..Thanks for saving me $$$$ and headaches ,,I will be
telling all the sagging Expedition owners about strutmasters,hopefully

I took my 99 Ford Expedition to Nelson Frame and Axle to have this kit put on. After the installation I drove the vehicle and it rides better than before. My only regret is that I did not know about this product sooner. I had the front shocks replaced last year and paid over $500. Great product and gives an excellent ride
“This is a great product to purchase if you’re looking to get rid of your faulty Ford/Lincoln Air Ride System. The conversion kit came with everything to replace the front and rear suspension air bags/struts. The truck handles great and the ride is nice and smooth. A+ product,
“I love all of the parts, my old Navigator is really riding nice with your system.
Thanks, Allen Bowie”
“You guys have always provided us with the proper parts in a timely fashion, and your staff is always helpful & courteous. And the product fits right, and works great!!!
Hans’ Auto & Truck – Look forward to doing business in the future!!!”
I am very satisfied with your products and also very satisfied with Jason. I contacted a lot of people before deciding on Strutmasters. I talked to a handful of franchised dealers and 7 or 8 local independent mechanics and also to 4 national franchise companies. You guys were the best. Jason was very knowledgable, answered all my questions and expedited my order….fast. Every part arrived as he promised and the price was the lowest I found. Installation was as promised….drop in parts with no modifications needed. I have owned a number of Lincolns and have had air-ride problems before….as far back as the late ’80’s. I’ll never have them again. Thank-you. J
Thanks!!!! Product is exactly what I needed!
“I love the product and the web site. I got good feedback from the guys. As far as the product and the ease of putting them in, great. I had a mech put them in and he loved them. Also the ride is great. My family didnt even notice it.
Thanks so much for everything you did for me. The packages arrived today (at the right address)!! You and your Company are First Class!
“The system is working great and my Navigator is not looking like a low rider anymore.
Thanks for the great product.
GREAT riding system to replace my Navigator air bag system. AWESOME Cust Service!
“Now that the kit is installed, I’m very pleased with the ride and rather shocked that the manufacturer even puts the air suspension in the vehicle to begin with.
“Just wanted to let you know that the sales person: Jason is a great person to have working for you! Called in, had me taken care of in a flash! Kudos to him!!!
I got this kit installed and my Navi sits at perfect height now. After many problems with the Factory air bag setup, I just got fed up with the prices and the many problems. This kit rides a little rougher than the factory air ride but I will have NO MORE PROBLEMS WITH THE SUSPENSION ANYMORE!
i received my conversion kit today for my dads navigator it took 2.5 hrs to put in and the truck rides like it did new. i did it in my driveway with jack stands and a 3 ton jack i will recommend to anyone with an air suspension problem and your sales person diego was very helpful thanks so much
I traded a vehicle about a month ago for a 98 lincoln navigator, They told me the bags were flat but seeing how I’ve never had anything with bags i had no clue what they were talking about… lol… I soon found out. The ride home with the rearend sitting on the frame was the worst ride in my life. So I started looking around on how to fix it I’m not mechanically inclined, and i found myself on strutmasters website i ordered the kit for front and back with new shocks and then had to figure out how to install, well after many calls and no more money i had to do it myself remember I’m not mechanically inclined but i tell you it Could’nt have been easier i did the back one day and the front the next and man does it ride like a dream now just want to say thanks to Strutmasters without you all id be in and out of shops spending thousands but now I don’t have to worry about it thank you
“What the video DOESN’T show you, is that the drivers side requires A LOT of patience for the rear spring. This was most definately not a job for one person on the garage floor. Having an extra hand to hold things in place and press down on the axle worked well though. Passenger side, no problem, just like the video.
Fronts went in way easier than in the video. You don’t HAVE to remove the upper A arm unless you are replacing it. The shock slides out through the bottom and new coil over slides right in. Requires a bit of man handling, but was able to do each side in 10 minutes.
Also, turning off the suspension light isnt a simple fix. Didnt know I had to rip apart my dash, so I havent done it yet.
Rides nicely though, so far no problems, think this is a GREAT fix.”
“Already completed the change over. I wish to thank you for all of your help. The customer service I received from you was first class. I appreciate it and by the way I cannot believe the ride that I have now on my expedition.
I bought it new in 2001 and it has never drove or ridden this well (outstanding product). Also I had a question and called the service tech line but due to the holiday weekend you had only 2 techs working I was ask to give my number instead of waiting on hold which I did and within minutes a service tech called me back and resolved the problem he was also very nice and customer service oriented
