Parts fit correctly and no major problems
I purchased the air conversion kit for my 2004 Lincoln Navigator, and the ride is so smooth that it feels like a brand new vehicle.
Thanks to you for your product and staff. I just completed installing the 4 coil-over strut conversions on my 2003 Navigator. Purchase was a breeze with you friendly folks on the other end. Installation was as easy as advertised and the ride is very comfortable. No more worrying about leaky airbags, long-running compressor, etc. Thanks again for developing such a good product and making it easy for a shade-tree guy like me to install.
Yesterday UPS arrived around 10:00 with my new Navigator suspension. I have spent over $6,000 with the local Lincoln dealership in the past 5 years fixing the suspension issues. I delivered the car and the new Strutmasters system to my mechanic. At 4:00 he called me to say I no longer had a "Lowrider". He charged me $226.00 to do the install and so problem solved PERMANENTLY for less than $1,000.00. Car rides better than ever and my wife is thrilled. THANK YOU STRUTMASTERS! Your postcard is one piece of "junkmail" I am glad I looked at.

Just wanted to let you know car is riding great. Wanted to let you know I had a company here named, Lincoln Land, put them on for me. The head mechanic stated he was impressed with the Quality and Workmanship of your product. He had never used your products before, that says something to me. And let me tell you that is one busy place for Lincolns. Thanks again, you saved me close to $3,000 dollars. James S. Bowen
I know everyone is entitled to their own opinion but sometimes they your keep lies to themselves. The first review that talks about the ride is not great and these struts are not worth it is a complete lie. I just installed my struts on my 04 Lincoln Nav and I swear it is the best thing I have done to my SUV. The ride feels just like the air ride suspension and I put that on my life. I am so impressed with how my truck rides, it feels like I just bought the truck off the showroom floor. Was not hard at all, all you need are the right tools and a little muscle and you will have no problem getting it done. I would say if you can change oil you can change your struts, Strutmasters you truly are masters of strut and I salute you!!!!!
I ordered the complete kit for my Lincoln Navigator. Havent installed it yet due to weather but the products are extremely heavy duty and high quality. The only recommendation I have for Strut Masters is possibly changing the color from red to black on the coil springs. Red stands out inside the fender well and on an all black vehicle, its slightly unsightly.
If you are having problems with your air ride you are going to regret not buying this kit! I have been fixing things here and there with my air ride until I bought this. Its will just Nickel and dime you! The parts are very high quality and were very easy to install. It took my dad and his friend 50 min each to replace them. I have been told by 3 mechanics that Strutmasters makes the best conversion kit they have seen! My truck rides better then it ever has. I feel much safer driving. The truck sits so nice, before the conversion the back sat abour 4 inches lower than the back. This is the way to go! Thank you Strutmasters for coming up with such a great product! Also excellent customer service. I placed my order over the phone on a Wednesday and had the kit by Friday!
Let me tell you my family felt like we had bought the car all over again. The excitement of driving and riding in the car with a smooth ride again was awesome, to say the least. I am so glad we did this. Will be back with you again soon. Dennis Robinson 03 Lincoln Navigator
Many thanks to you guys at STRUTMASTERS !!!! My wife's 2003 Lincoln Navigator was diagnosed with Air Bag Cancer. I checked everywhere for a solution because my wife LOVES her car. Every solution form Lincoln said $$$$ which we could not afford. I began to put my fingers to the Cyber Net Keyboard for solutions and found your website! The video made it look a little bit TOO easy (if you can do brakes . . .. I checked the BBB for their complaint issues and found them to be in good standings. I was a little hesitant to order over the internet, so I used a debit card and WHOLLA! I ordered it Sunday and it came Wed afternoon! I had all the tools EXCEPT the one to remove the large bolts from the bottom Strut, so I enlisted the aide of my Mechanic Mr. Chase of Bernard's Auto of Bklyn, NY who installed all 4 for a minimal price. Everything (including the Struts) came to UNDER $1000!!!! So if your tired of chasing the Dealership Rainbow for a solution, try STRUTMASTERS for a cure to Air Bag Cancer and give your ride a new LIFT on life. - Fred Collie
I purchased the Strutmasters conversion package for my 2003 navigator and experience a wonderful ride. Prior to the conversion I was in complete dismay, the front airbags slowly leaked, I was riding low, leaning, bumpy, and probably dangerous. Now I am experiencing a wonderful, wonderful ride. At this point I have only praise for the quality of items I received with Strutmasters. Wonderful, wonderful product, wonderful customer service, everybody was wonderful with me.
I have a 2004 Lincoln Navigator in which the front ais suspension failed/malfunction so my gator was nose down for over a month. After my local mechanic referred me to Strutmaster and said they offer the best price, i figure i would go ahead and buy online. I shopped around and by far StrutMaster was the best price around town. Furthermore, my mechanic only charged me about $400 to replace my failed Air Suspension and install these new conversion kit. All I can say is WOW, these new suspension are smooth and EVEN BETTER than the original air suspension. I quickly took it on the freeway and felt no bumps. Highly reccommended for price and good quality. BTW: I ordered the Eibach product. Very nice work StrutMaster
Just had my air suspension replaced with the "2003-2006 Lincoln Navigator 4-Wheel Air Suspension Conversion Kit (2WD & 4WD)" I am so relieved, the ride is great, and the quality of the struts were great (according to my mechanic and from what I saw)! Delivery took about a week and the tech service, and Dustin & Vito were more that helpful! Living in the Denver area, every time the temp would drop below 20 degrees so would the front end ... when it did it while I was on the interstate at 65 mph it got my attention ... started to get the "bring it back in if it does it again" story from the dealership ... what a pain --- Thanks Dustin, I am very happy with my new "ride" :0)
Excellent quality & great handling. Would recommend to anyone as alternate to anyone considering repairing/replacing their air suspension. A+
Installed the strutmaster kit on my 2003 Lincoln Navigator and my truck rides great I can't tell any difference between these and the air ride. It took me a little over four hours to complete installation. My compressor went out and one of the front air bags and I didn't want to replace and then have another one fail. Great product.
Best money I spent in a long time...No more air bag problems....Thanks Strutmasters....
MUCH better than the OEM air ride. THANKS!

I recieved the subject order on the day you said that I would, so that went well. I had the struts installed on my 2006 Lincoln Navigator and things seem to be well with that too. We think that the ride is stiffer than with the air suspension system but is acceptable. I hope that the replacement system holds up better than the factory system that is defective by design and operation. You asked for before and after pictures so I will send them under a separate e-mail. Thanks, RW Rice

I had been searching for replacement parts for an 03 Navigator I had just purchased, it had a leak in the air bags. I began my search and had seen several sights including this Strut Masters. You came highly recommended and I must say I echo the very high marks. Product was shipped when and How you said and the new springs and shocks arrive when you said. I very much like the ride and control-ability of the set up. Excellent product and service. Thank you, Walter Walker, Jr
Just bought this my 2005 Navigator. MAN WHAT a DIFFERENCE. Can't believe how awesome my Navi rides. I love the piece of mind of not worrying about my air ride and the red springs look cool. Thanks Strutmasters!
Very good service from the representative that I spoke with on the phone. Parts arrived in a couple of days, very nice service for ground delivery. The only problem, is one of the boxes arrived open, hopefully nothing fell out thanks. Parts going on this weekend. Thanks
Well, I didn't want to do this at first, as sooo many people that did the air ride conversion have been unhappy, but none of them have used strutmasters kit... if they have, they would say it is nearly the same as the air ride... I wish I would have just done this from the start instead of wasting the money I did on the air ride system, which never did get fixed correctly. I would say it's about 85% the same - but the trade off is that I will never have to worry about waking up in the morning, going out to my truck, and have it sitting low, and not pumping up... All in All, it was a wise choice - I didn't like that they charged me a $5 handling fee and didn't tell me about this, (thus the 4 out of 5 stars) but as I say, you can't beat these... they are heavier than I expected in the boxes, etc... so that was a nice surprise! The springs are beefy, and I love the red power coated paint job!
The left rear airbag on my 2003 Navigator went down at 90,000 miles. I read the stories on the forums and decided to abandon the stock air suspension. I am certain it was the correct decision. The kit was at my home in less than a week. I installed it in my driveway in about 2 hours. It was easier than doing a brake job. The ride is great! And I have piece of mind knowing I will never have to worry about it again.
Hello, I was really satisfied with my purchase. I ordered the part in the morning and it was shipped that day (as promised). I got emails giving me a status of the item. I would've given you an excellent review, but I just found out that I have to buy some sort of module to get rid of the message on my dashboard. I was told that since I am a current customer, I would get the item for $200 versus $400. The message states that the "suspension system is off." I have to push the reset button to get rid of it. I thought that the person that installed it would be able to call the toll-free and be instructed on how to turn the light off. Other than that, I am very satisfied and would recommend strutmasters to anybody.
Man 'oh' Man...this is the best thing that happened to my truck since i bought it..I'm writing to you from Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania (EAST AFRICA), I'm a proud owner of a Lincoln Navigator, but the air suspension have eluded my pride for sometime not to mention it killed my compressor too..Now, with the ez replacement, Im rolling high and comfy with Strutmaster Non Air Conversion..Yap, it feels like new again and you know, we're talking about African roads sir; Ford should put your products from the get-go..Thank you for making me proud again. Asante Strutmaster, Asante sana!! Thank you..
I would be remiss if I did not contact you and tell you of the “Outstanding” customer service and information that I received from Vito. After speaking with Vito on several occasions he was the deciding factor in me deciding to purchase the Air Suspension Replacement Kit from Strutmasters. After being burned by my local repair guy (could not fix the problem without costing me even more money) I was more than a little apprehensive about this entire process but Vito provided me with a great education on this problem and process and made me very comfortable buying from your Company. The parts arrived when expected (and had the mechanic done what he should have done – I would have had my vehicle back on the same day), and per my mechanic they were very well made. My mechanic (kindly –due to me being ill) picked up my Navigator at 9AM and returned it to me by 3:30 on the same day, I have been very happy with the height and the comfort of the ride. My mechanic commented favorably on the quality of the parts he received an the ease of the process (although there was no reflection of this in the charges to me) I just wanted you to know what a great job Vito did in serving me as a customer. Thanks!!!

Both Livernois Vehicle Development and Ford Motor Company want to thank you for the time you spent in helping develop a crucial spring that was required for the Navigator Boom Vehicle that is currently in development. Your contribution was a major factor in the success of this project. Your time and dedication are very much appreciated. Jim Adams Livernois Vehicle Development Pete Simonie Ford Motor Company
I am pleased with my new suspension system. I wish I knew about it earlier, I would have saved lots of money, time and frustration. The only complaint I have is that the suspension light continues to come on. We need a solution!
Thank you Strutmasters! I have had issues with my Air Suspension system for 3 years now and $3,000 dollars later the mechanics still cannot pin point the issue. I removed the air struts and replaced them with your conversion kit. The instructions and videos made it easy. I am not a mechanic, but your videos made it real easy. thank you so much. The Nav rides great now and no more worries about the suspension. Awesome product. You have a customer for life.
We had installed the Navigator Conversion Kit with no problem and returned the car back to our customer yesterday.
I bought struts to convert air suspension of my Navigator 2006. Very happy with it! Service and shipping was excellent. Thank you.
Just Installed a full set of replacements for my 03 Navigator. Very pleased!!!! Is it as smooth as the air ride, no. But it sure is a lot cheaper in the long run and not a bad ride at all! I have took Pictures from before, during and after. feel free to email me for em. email@example.com.
I have a 2003 Lincoln navigator in 2011 my truck sunk down the right side took it to Lincoln dealership cost me $1300.00 I had heard of the air conversion but didn't want to give up the smooth ride that I was told I would be losing so around September 2012 the driver side goes down in the shop again another $1100.00 get it fixed and December 2013 same thing this time I was fed up same problem that I was having with this truck so I decided to give strutmasters a call placed the order on thurs got the materials on Monday I purchased the conversion and suspension kit installed it myself easy to do just had to rent the tools for the inner tie rod and the ball joints now my truck is back on the road and riding like brand new cant tell the difference and it has over 200,000 miles the time trust me don't believe what you have heard try it yourself I'm very pleased thank you strutmasters
Strutmasters was my best find ever. I own a 2003 Lincoln Navigator, Great SUV, But the air ride is a problem we bought this suv in 2005 still had warranty left and we bought a extended warranty till 75000 miles in that time the air compressor went out 3 times, 2 times under warranty, this last time at 95000 ford wanted 499.00 plus labor for something that last about 18 months, then i found strutmaster there site and there sales staff, are very helpful even when i was installing them, i call my Sales man Anglo with one very simple problem, i felt stupid but Anglo was very helpful and walk me right through it, This SUV is my wife's dream car She is so happy with ride and no more waiting for the air ride to air up, are those terrible rides home with no air. we are planing on keeping for many many years. I took Anglo advise and put them on e-bay and sold them used, also advised many buyers to you site, that could not buy them from me used, Thank You Again Strutmaster. a customer forever.

This was one of the best choices I ever made to change the air suspension on my navigator,no more problems,save money,great product,very helpful rep. thanks again for a great product Gord
Did the install in one easy day by myself in my garage. No air tools, only tool I had to go get was a large metric socket (30mm) I think. Way easier then the install I did on my Mark VIII!! And the ride seems about the same, just got back from a 1200 mile trip and it road fine, even through the WV turnpike at 75 mph. I'm currently looking for another Nav with air ride issues to buy cheap and do an install on. Love this car.
I have waited a few months before writing a review on the 4-Wheel Air Suspension Conversion Kit with eibach springs the truck does sit a little higher but not much still looks great in my opinion the truck rides much better than with the air ride it handles corners 100 times better not as much body roll goes over speed bumps and dips better not as bouncy would recommend this kit
It's been 3 weeks since I had the kit installed and I'm very happy. I should have done this years and thousands of dollars ago. Thank you Strutmasters for a great product. I will be recommending you guys to all my friends that have air suspension problems.
I wanted to let you know I was TOTALLY SATISFIED with my Strutmasters experience. I had even ordered the springs/shocks for the wrong model vehicle and didn't realize this until I received that package. I talked with Donielle and she handled everything. You also returned the original purchase price to my acct in a timely manner. Although it was a pain changing these items (because of shock top bolt placement) if I needed to replace this on another vehicle, I would use you guys in a minute.
I purchased the coil over kit for my wife's 2004 navigator. Strutmasters was easy to deal with and I received my order in only 4 days. It only took 3 hours to install the new struts and the ride and drive is as good, if not better than the factory air ride.

I have always wanted a LINCOLN NAVIGATOR and this year i finally was able to get one. A 2003 with low mileage and a price to good to be true. Made the purchase no problems, after driving for about a month it happened the whole truck leaned to one side then the front end dropped and would not raise back up. I said to myself thats why i got the truck so cheap!!! But i did my research and found the best company in world STRUTMASTERS.COM. Bought the conversion kit and installed yesterday and I'm driving BABY I'M DRIVING. Thank you so much and GOD BLESS.
I kick myself for not finding you guys a few years ago when I started battling the air ride on my wife's urban assault vehicle. Long story short......after replacing a compressor and two level ride sensors we still were in lowrider mode! Of course temperature played a role (anytime it dropped below 40 degrees F). I bought your XN-44 and installed them over the weekend. (the comment about "if you can do a brake job you can install these units".....is accurate! For a self proclaimed shade tree mechanic it took me 3 hours to complete with no lift. The wife thanks me everyday for not having to battle the rough ride. Well done Strutmasters......well done indeed!
