Why Choose Strutmasters Instead Of Those Other Guys

We are The Suspension Experts and we know every detail about the assortment of parts that make up the air suspension system on your 1997-2002 Ford Expedition. We created a conversion kit that eliminates the dependence on complicated electrical parts to function in sync in order to have a properly working air suspension system. The kit includes only high-quality parts and is a direct replacement (no modifications are needed before the kit is installed). For starters, the kit includes our bundle kit: two upper control arms with ball, inner and outer tie rod ends and sway bar end links. On top of that, you will get two replacement rear shocks, two coil-over load adjusting shocks for the front end and two premium Eibach coil springs to delete the airbags in the rear of the Expedition. The conversion kit saves you time, frustration, and money. The low price usually seals the deal when our customers are shopping around. Let’s look closer at the cost difference between choosing air vs non-air suspension system. On this page, we compare three prices: that of repairing your air suspension system at the Ford dealership, that of installing aftermarket air suspension parts on your Expedition individually, and that of getting rid of the faulty air ride headache and installing a brand new Strutmasters coil spring suspension conversion kit. Read the review on our site from happy customers who are glad they chose the final option.

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

Keep a close eye on your 1997-2002 Ford Expedition’s ride height. If you notice it is no longer reaching and maintaining its proper ride height, it may have a leaking, failed, or bad suspension. There are common signs that can help you diagnose the situation. The most often seen symptom is a sudden noticeable uneven height difference between different sides of the Expedition. The Expedition may be sagging in the rear but inflated in the front end. Some drivers notice it leans from one side to the other. Maybe the Expedition looks like it’s slammed down to the ground, or just squatting on its back side. All of these point to a non-working air suspension. Check the instrument cluster for an illuminated suspension warning light or message. Also, look at the performance of the air compressor. If it has stopped working or is running too often (will be very loud and noisy), you may need a total replacement of the air suspension. Keep reading to learn a little bit more about the options you have.

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) Shock Absorbers (x4) - 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.

1997-2002 Ford Expedition (4WD) Coil Springs (x2) - the front of the town car already has coil springs, that’s why we not only offer replacements for weakened coil springs in the front, but our conversion kit puts the same, sturdy design on the rear of the vehicle.

1997-2002 Ford Expedition (4WD) Height Sensors (x2) - 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.

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) Solenoids (x2) - 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.

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 vehicle’s correct ride height.

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.

1997-2002 Ford Expedition (4WD) Upper Control Arm- a bar which pivots at both ends and is used at the top of a MacPherson Strut, usually with a lower wishbone.

1997-2002 Ford Expedition (4WD) Upper/Lower Ball Joints- bearings that connect control arms to the steering knuckles.

1997-2002 Ford Expedition (4WD) Inner and Outer Tie Rod Ends- endlinks for the first and last stage of the steering process.

1997-2002 Ford Expedition (4WD) Sway Bar Endlinks- these connect the sway bar to the vehicle in order to redistribute the vehicle’s weight while cornering.

I did the conversion over the weekend and it handles nice and at least i wont have to worry about replacing the air bags or the motor. For the long run i think it was a good investment.

This is William, I’ve got a 1999 Lincoln Navigator. I ordered your product a couple weeks ago. Very simple to install the change over and was a success and the ride was better than before. Not many ways you guys can improve, you are doing everything the right way I just recommend to keep up the good work. I like the follow up emails, constant contact with customers, and your customer service. I even called in early one Sunday morning, had a very helpful gentlemen there answer all my questions, and got me back on the road. Everything was a very positive experience with Strutmasters and I highly recommend to anybody with bags on their car.

My air ride has gone out twice in the past, and I had enough. Air ride is expensive and inconvenient. My new Strutmaster conversion kit is awesome, and now I know I don’t have to shell out money for constant maintnence. Thanks Strutmasters
