1997-2002 4WD Lincoln Navigator
- The Front Shocks Are Part Of the Air System. If they Are Not Changed Out, Poor Handling, And Excessive Tire and Suspension Wear Can Result.
The 1997-2002 Lincoln Navigator (4WD) is built with the following front suspension components:
1997-2002 Lincoln Navigator (4WD) Air Shocks (x2) - the air shocks are pumped up automatically to keep the vehicle level and to assist with the ride quality. These shocks contain a rubber bladder which is notorious for dry rotting, causing leaks in the shocks which inevitably leads to multiple failures in the air system. These are located in the front.
1997-2002 Lincoln Navigator (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 Lincoln Navigator (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 Lincoln Navigator (4WD) Torsion Bar- Adjustable horizontal bar on the front of the vehicle that holds the vehicle off the ground.
1997-2002 Lincoln Navigator (4WD) Dryer- prevents moisture build-up inside of air suspension parts.
1997-2002 Lincoln Navigator (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.
Suspension Failure Signs
You will want to diagnose a failed or leaking air suspension system on your Lincoln Navigator before it is too late and total failure sets in. The most noticeable sign is a loss of dampening abilities at the front of the vehicle. The ride will feel turbulent and be rough and bouncy if you are sitting in the front. An obvious red flag is an illuminated suspension warning light or message on the instrument panel- if you see this, a repair is necessary. If your Navigator is unable to reach and maintain its appropriate ride height, then you will want it fixed immediately before other components wear out. The air compressor could go, so check to make sure it is still working or running too often (it will be very loud and noisy).
OEM Replacement Cost
'+ Compressor Assembly ($730)
+ Dryer ($250)
+ Air Shocks ($140/shock)
= Over $1,200 (and that doesn't even include replacing electronic components that are known to fail such as the height sensors).
Aftermarket Replacement Cost
'+ Compressor and Dryer Assembly ($210)
+ Air Shocks ($90/pair)
= Over $350 (but that doesn't include replacing electronic components that are known to fail such as the height sensors).
