I converted my jeep overland from a air ride suspension to regular struts and the ride is great. The only issue that I'm having is the noise from the conversion that I wasn't expecting. Was told that my car needs time to settle since it doesn't have the correct equipment so hopefully that's correct because the noise is loud and annoying .
Smooth ride! Couldn't be happier!!
Super fast shipping and a fairly easy install. Only took about 5 hours and so much cheaper than fixing a faulty air suspension.
Our Jeep had Air Suspension issues before we bought it which the manufacturer stated they fixed with a new ride height sensor. 3 years after purchase we received the first Air suspension message and it costs 3300 to replace the compressor, and valve body and air spring connectors. just after 2 years later the compressor started to stay on when the car was off and the warning came on, the next day the suspension was bottomed out. the dealer filled it with nitrogen mix and then couldn't find a leak, due to finding nothing wrong they thought it would be best to replace the compressor and valve body again. I did not agree with this repair and found Strutmaster kit. Any honest Jeep mechanic will tell you this Air suspension is the most common and expensive repair on Jeeps but Chrysler keeps selling them.
The Strutmaster order support person Kim was very helpful to make sure I ordered the right kit. The shipping was prompt and faster than promised. For the few questions I had during installation, the technical support team was very friendly and helpful. The installation guides did pretty well outlining the installation process and pretty much detailed everything along with pictures, however I did have to remove a rubber O ring from the hub assy. before the Rotors would release for removal, also I had to remove the rear brake assembly to allow for the lower control arm to drop low enough to put in the rear springs, this was not mentioned. I had to borrow a frontend kit from the autostore, which cost nothing, you just leave a deposit and it is given back once the tool is returned. While not necessary, but an impact wrench of around 1400 lbs really speeds it up and makes breaking stubborn nuts and bolts loose.
The kit works exactly as described and the electronic module has prevented any sort of air suspension warnings.
I'm so glad to have the expensive Air suspension issues which made it unreliable behind us. The strutmaster option is of course a ride comparable to any standard suspension and not as soft as an Air suspension but it avoids the high cost and unreliability of Jeep's Air suspension.
I had my local Jeep dealership install the shocks. They feel fine, maybe a little stiff but for the $$ saved not replacing my air suspension it is worth every penny. The dealership had some issues installing the module that clears the error codes but Strutmasters staff was very available in helping get the situation fixed. The product works well and they back up their product.

Installed this kit on a customers 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Removal and installation of the actual suspension parts went well. The module to turn off the service suspension light was faulty and we had to keep the vehicle until the new one came, Strutmasters did expedite a new module which we installed and now it works as it should. A couple of caveats with the electrical part is the headlights are no longer adaptive due to no height sensor input, and we used a scan tool to put the air bag system in service mode to release the nitrogen fill back to the tank and it must be taken out of service mode in order for the module to work correctly.

Great complete kit with excellent instructions
Delivery was very quick out to Saudi Arabia where I’ve got my Jeep. Customer support was excellent. Recommend these guys.
It feels like a new truck. The air suspension sounded horrible when going over speed bump or any obstruction. It was embarrassing and when it completely failed the air suspension felt like a pogo stick or what I would imagine a low rider to feel like. You guys rule!!
I have never been so satisfied with my purchase of my strutmaster conversion kit. I had a Quadra Lift air suspension system in my car and it was costing me money like crazy every couple of months I was trying to find a automotive shop to take my car to because it had lowered back down on all four tires because it never worked but I promise you guys I am definitely satisfied my jeep is up high and taking every bump on the road
It fit perfect. The ride height was set just right the module that comes with the kit disabled all the suspension lights.
My 2011 Jeep Cherokee Overland's air suspension totally blew up. Dealer wanted about 5k and only warrantied work for 2 years. The strutmaster kit fit perfectly and the module cancells out the air suspension system warning, however the included shocks are not great. They seem soft especially in the rear where it's extremely soft. This kit is a good quick fix but I will definitely be upgrading at least the rears because I believe it would be unsuitable for towing or lugging 5 people or a bunch of cargo around. Overall 3.5/5 but I'll round up to 4/5 because the shipping was fast and the instructions were very detailed. Thanks strutmasters, just wish you guys made things a little stiffer...
Great customer service!
Itll save you a lot of $$$$$ in future
Seems to be a good kit, haven't put a lot of miles on the Jeep since we got it installed, but it seems to drive good. Well worth the piece of mind not to have to deal with the high priced Jeep quadralift system.
Quick and easy to install
Quality parts. Simple Installation. Improved ride and ride height. Drives better than the original suspension
I bought this kit to replace my Quadra Lift suspension on my Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland. It fit perfect and rides like new! I definitely recommend Strutmasters for your Jeep!
Parts were installed by my repair shop in a half day or so and everything is great, my 2011 Jeep rides real nice.
Ordering and shipping were super fast. Install was tedious but the videos helped so much. Modules havent come in yet, they said two weeks and we are almost at two weeks. I called to see how big of a tire I could go up to and they said two sizes which is what we did and they rub really bad. I am now having to buy a 2" leveling kit for the front. In my opinion it does not lift it any higher than factory. Unfortunately I am going to be out more money for the leveling kit install. So do not expect this kit to level it out. Go ahead and get the pucks and install at the same time to save time and money. Just my two cents. Over all happy with the kit itself and relieved not to have to deal with the air ride anymore. Would definitely buy from them again.

John was extremly helpful with the purchase and made it easy and he is very knowlegable. Thanks John!!
FAST SHIPPING. GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE WHEN WE CALLED WITH QUESTIONS. THANKS
Timely shipping. My ride is amazing. Initially sent the wrong size springs but shipped correct size quickly. Customer service outstanding.
Bolts right in, restores suspension to OEM specs, same ride height at half the price on new air ride system with no future worries. Didn't even need an alignment.
My seat memory seems to have suffered in the retro process tho. Module system compromise?

The module box did not have any instructions in it. The shop modified the wiring. I guess he had a scanner. I will let you know what is not working as I drive to Kansas.
Turned out great . Good product.
My research of available product was made easy by your website. The choice of product(s) was very good. The ordering process was very timely and friendly. The delivery was on time as explained.
My concern is front end is noticeably higher than the back...! Is this to be expected ?
As of now, my only concern. Everything else was great.
Thanks for any info.
The kit install was fine no issues, other than I still am getting a alarm and warning when the jeep is started "Service air suspension"
2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee with the usual issues with the air suspension. Initially repaired by myself with replacement parts from another company. Also replaced the rear shocks and airbags but still had issues. Was going to try and replace the front struts and air compressor when decided to just go with the strutmaster system. I had a local mechanic install it. It does sit a little high in the front squats a little in the rear. But I am very happy with it. It's a little bit rougher than the air suspension but it rides like a Jeep now. My mechanic said it took him roughly 12 hours to install and that it was a little bit more difficult than what the video that strut master puts out, initially I was going to do it the work myself and I'm glad I did not do that. Don't have access to all the air tools or to another helper, both of which he said he needed.
works great saved a bunch of money verses dealer price, customer completely satisfied
The kit was great as this did the job. The first kit I bought did not include the module to bypass the warning lights. The Kit was for the same model vehicle and I’m wondering if it could be included now?
Great product! Rides very smooth. I was happy that the module was included and worked perfectly. Wish there was a 1-inch lift or a lift kit capability.
I put the shocks and struts on my my jeep …and it is comparable to the airbag suspension that I replaced… Perfectly satisfied … Kim is amazing !!!! she deserves a raise.

Don't waste your money replacing each air ride part it will cost a fortune. Our customer loved that we knew how to swap her air ride out and absolutely loves the ride. Great Job Strutmasters on fooling the factory system and nailing the ride quality. Destination 4x4s & More in Ormond Beach FL is ready for more of these kits!
