Ford Expedition 4WD (1997-2002) Suspension Parts and Air Suspension Conversion Kit Reviews - Strutmasters
Read reviews for Strutmasters® Suspension Parts and Air Suspension Conversion Kits:
The staff on the phone were knowledgeable and helpful. The product arrived promptly.
The instructions were good and the product does far better than the Monroe kit that it replaced.
I would recommend this product and company.
I appreciate the experience I had with you company. Will was very knowledgable and answered all of my questions upon ordering. The exact parts I needed arrived ahead of schedule. The parts were installed on the truck today. It rides well and handles well. It is slightly elevated in the back and is about 2″ higher at the driver’s side running board. That will take some getting used to. Perhaps it will relax a bit with use, too. I am very pleased with buying experience through Strutmasters. I will be referring you to any friends who have a need for your products. I was able to do the replacement for 40% of what a Ford dealer quoted for the same work. I appreciate the savings and the professional service.
Merry Christmas to everyone there.
I checked the website and was still unclear about which product matched what I needed. I called your toll-free number. Will answered. Within minutes, he had answered all of my questions with confidence and had processed my order. I also appreciated the offer of free shipping. That was a very nice touch. I found Will to be personable and professional. I was completely comfortable talking to him and confident that he knew what he was talking about. I expect that the product I ordered will be right for my truck and that it will solve the air ride problems permanently. Thank you and Merry Christmas.
The air ride suspension was removed and replaced on rear of vehicle before i bought it. They never converted the front. Both front shocks were busted. I was tired of riding bump stops. Local shops wanted 1400 dollars to convert my expedition to coil over. Upon further investigation i came across strutmaster.com. I ordered my brand name conversion kit and it arrived in a matter of days. I did the install myself. It took me 30 minutes to tear down , remove, and reinstall. 45 minutes total job time from driving, to completed and driving again. Saved my self over 1000 dollars and a week of wait time. If you can change a radiator hose this install is super simple. Just a few more tools. Im currently preparing to attack the rear end next. Awesome product. Will never go to a shop for suspension issues again. Thanks strutmasters.
“What the video DOESN’T show you, is that the drivers side requires A LOT of patience for the rear spring. This was most definately not a job for one person on the garage floor. Having an extra hand to hold things in place and press down on the axle worked well though. Passenger side, no problem, just like the video.
Fronts went in way easier than in the video. You don’t HAVE to remove the upper A arm unless you are replacing it. The shock slides out through the bottom and new coil over slides right in. Requires a bit of man handling, but was able to do each side in 10 minutes.
Also, turning off the suspension light isnt a simple fix. Didnt know I had to rip apart my dash, so I havent done it yet.
Rides nicely though, so far no problems, think this is a GREAT fix.”
Other than that, your staff was courteous, helpful, knowledgeable and your service was great, Thanks for all you did with this order. Randy
“I replaced my rear Air springs with Strutmaster regular springs last weekend. The entire job took about 3 hours and most of that time was getting my Expedition lifted high enough work on it. The jacks that I have, lifted the Expedition high enough to to change the tire but not high enough to pull the axle down to provide room to install the new spring (For safety, I did use jack stands once the vehicle was lifted). Once that was solved the replacement went smoothly.
All in all I’m very happy with the springs and I’m glad to be rid of my problematic rear air suspension. If and when the front suspension goes, I will definitely replace it with you standard spring/shock front suspension kit.
“I am a repeat customer with Strutmasters. This should tell you that I have been pleased with my previous experience. The 96 Lincoln still rides great on the rear replacement springs I bought from you. The ’99 Expedition that I just converted from air to spring ride also rides great.
