Replaced Components
The 1997-2002 Lincoln Navigator (4WD) is built with the following rear suspension components:

1997-2002 Lincoln Navigator (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 Lincoln Navigator (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 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 vehicles correct ride height.



Suspension Failure Signs
The 4WD 1997-2002 Lincoln Navigator comes from the factory with rear air springs. There are several easy ways to assess when yours needs to be replaced before total failure hits. You may notice the rear end of your SUV sagging, or that you have to adjust your front torsion bars for no apparent reason to fix your Navigator’s ride height. If you suddenly start to notice the sound of your air compressor when you have never noticed it before, that could be a sign that it is working overtime. This labored sound could mean one or two things. First, it definitely means that your compressor is wearing out and will probably need to be replaced. It could also mean that you have a leak somewhere in your air suspension, and your compressor is wearing itself out trying to catch up to the leak in the vacuum.

OEM Replacement Cost
'+ Compressor Assembly ($730)
+ Dryer ($250)
+ Air Springs ($260/air spring)
= Over $1,500 (and that doesnt even include replacing electronic components that are known to fail such as the height sensors).

Aftermarket Replacement Cost
'+ Compressor and Dryer Assembly ($210)
+ Air Springs ($260/pair)
= Over $600 (but that doesn't include replacing electronic components that are known to fail such as the height sensors).
Going to the dealership to install direct replacements is an option. These particular parts are not that expensive. What is expensive, however, is taking your truck to the dealership three or four times, because of a systemic issue. Fixing your air suspension is like fighting a sickness…….repairing the symptom doesnt usually mean youve solved the underlying problem. Our FX1R0 can offer a simple, affordable solution to your rear air suspension problems. It allows you to still use your front air shocks (YES, if you have a 4WD Navigator, you have front air suspension…take a look!) and saves your compressor. We provide all the necessary R&D, instructions, and installation videos to help you or your mechanic prevent a bad air system from going to total failure!
