How Do I know If My Expedition Air Suspension is failing?

If you think your Ford Expedition 4WD is unable to meet and maintain the appropriate ride height, it's time to check for common signs of a failed or leaking air suspension system. Running on a bad suspension for too long will cause total failure and other major components will wear out. The most noticeable sign of a bad suspension is a sudden uneven height difference between different sides of the Expedition. Typically the rear end will sag while the front end remains inflated (it's held up with a metal torsion bar at the front end). An illuminated suspension warning light or message on the instrument panel will confirm a repair is needed. Lastly, if the air compressor has stopped working or is running too often (very loud and noisy) then a replacement is needed. You will need to get this fixed soon.

Suspension Components List

The 1997-2002 Ford Expedition (4WD) is built with the following rear 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) Shock Absorbers (x2) - 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.

1997-2002 Ford Expedition (4WD) Air Lines- tubes that run from a compressor to the air which carry pressurized air to the air bags in order to adjust the height of the vehicle, respectively.

1997-2002 Ford Expedition (4WD) Compressor Assembly- 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.

1997-2002 Ford Expedition (4WD) Torsion Bar- Adjustable horizontal bar on the front of the vehicle that holds the vehicle off the ground.

1997-2002 Ford Expedition (4WD) Dryer- prevents moisture build-up inside of air suspension parts.

1997-2002 Ford Expedition (4WD) Suspension Control Module- a computer which is responsible for the operations of the air suspension system and maintaining the vehicles correct ride height.

1997-2002 Ford Expedition (4WD) Rear Suspension Conversion Kit (FX1R0) Review Michael Asuncion

Yeah I’m satisfied with the springs I ordered, they arrived a day earlier than expected and the installation went good. I did not have to use the instructions. I have the 1999 Expedition and did the air to coil conversion on the rear and it was easy. Thanks

1997-2002 Ford Expedition and Lincoln Navigator (4WD) Rear Suspension Conversion Kit (FX1R0) Review Roy Boyes

More than just satisfied. I ordered the springs on Monday morning. The springs were on my front porch Wednesday evening at 5 pm when I woke up. We had our supper and around 730 pm myself and my neighbor went to work on replacing the springs things went well and all was cleaned up by 1030 pm .I may send some pics if i can figure out how to. but the conversion from bags to springs was very easy.

1997-2002 Ford Expedition (4WD) Rear Suspension Conversion Kit (FX1R0) Review Andrew Hassara

“I replaced my rear Air springs with Strutmaster regular springs last weekend. The entire job took about 3 hours and most of that time was getting my Expedition lifted high enough work on it. The jacks that I have, lifted the Expedition high enough to to change the tire but not high enough to pull the axle down to provide room to install the new spring (For safety, I did use jack stands once the vehicle was lifted). Once that was solved the replacement went smoothly.

All in all I’m very happy with the springs and I’m glad to be rid of my problematic rear air suspension. If and when the front suspension goes, I will definitely replace it with you standard spring/shock front suspension kit.

1997-2002 Ford Expedition (4WD) Rear Suspension Conversion Kit (FX1R0) Review Steve D.

I’ve never even done a brake job. Watched the StrutMaster video and changed out the rear springs on my 97 Expedition in my drive way with some jack stands and simple hand tools.
