Jaguar XJ8 Suspension Parts and Air Suspension Conversion Kit Reviews - Strutmasters
Read reviews for Strutmasters® Suspension Parts and Air Suspension Conversion Kits:
First off, Donielle in the office at Strutmasters was fantastic! Answered all my questions, processed my order and sent me some possible shops to get the work done. My parts arrived on time and in full, though her shop recommendations were all unusable for various reasons.
My Cat was lolling around and laying down on its bumpstops on the old bags, but one set of strutmaster coilover conversion and three hours on the lift cured what ailed it. The ride is fantastic, handling is great, and I will NEVER again have a single thought of my air suspension failing at a bad time. The shop I used had a bit of trouble with the electronic override module, but got it right the first time.
Thank you Donielle and Strutmasters.
Hi, I’m Colin from Sarasota, FL. I did a lot of research on doing a conversion from air-struts to coil springs, I found the prices to be very competitive and after speaking to Donielle and having my questions answered, I felt very comfortable about buying the Kit. I am by no means a mechanic but the instructions that come with the kit are very precise and easy to follow. I was very happy at the look of the car once I had installed the kit. The stance just seemed right, Not to high or low. I was very impressed on how it drove, the ride was firm enough to hold the road yet soft enough so that every bump was not Jarring. The car felt very planted as you took a corner and there was virtually no roll that you get from other inferior coil springs. Overall I am delighted at the end result, starting with the great personal service I got over the phone and to the product it self. I would, with out a doubt use this company again and highly recommend them.
Called StrutMasters for information on a conversion kit for my 04 Jaguar XJ8 which is showing signs of air suspension problems. Talked to Jennifer about their product, she was very helpful and knowledgeable. I did not order at that time but will soon knowing this is a quality product and will perform up to my standard.
AFTER VIEWING SEVERAL WEB PAGES AND BLOGS ( ARNOTT, AMERICAN AIRSUSPENSION, BIELTSON( SP?) I CAME TO REALIZE THAT STRUTMASTERS SEEMED TO HAVE THE MOST FAVORABLE REVIEWS AND TESTIMONIES. I DECIDED TO VISIT THEIR WEB PAGE AFTER REVIEWING MORE FOOTAGE OF INSTALLS ON YOUTUBE. ONCE ON THE STRUTMASTERS.COM WEB I RECEIVED A CHAT MESSAGE FROM JENNIFER. NOT ONLY WAS THE INFORMATION ON THE PAGE HELPFUL BUT JENNIFER PROVIDED EXCELLENT CUSTOMER SUPPORT AND SERVICE BY ANSWERING ALL MY QUESTIONS AN ASSURING ME WITH DETAILS ABOUT THE MANUFACTURERS WARRANTY AND THE LIFE EXPECTANCY OF THE PRODUCT I WAS PURCHASING.
GREAT JOB JENNIFER! IT’S NICE WHEN YOU GET A CUSTOMER SERVICE REP WHO TRULY ENJOYS WORKING WITH CUSTOMERS! BRAVO! TO JENNIFER @ 877-864-5637 – IN CASE YOU WANT TO GET THE SAME GREAT SERVICE I DID 🙂
“Started to develop an intermittent “Air Suspension Fault” on my 04 XJ8 and shortly after that found it sitting low in the right front corner in the mornings. After some research decided to go with Strutmasters so placed them on order. Showed up in about a week.
Took about 4 hours to install the toughest thing for us was getting behind the back seat. Other than that you can do this if you can change the oil on you car and have the tools and a decent jack and stands. Everything went in without a hitch and there are no errors on the computer it is happy.
Ride and handling to me are more sporty than before. It is a bit firmer without being too stiff but stays much flatter in the turns and bounce is non existent regardless of the road. Very satisfied with the drive of the car overall.
Money well spent if you car has life left and you don’t want to open the box on messing with the air suspension.”
“2006 jaguar xj8l , air pump went so rebuilt, front shock popped after I rebuilt pump shop wanted $1850.00 to replace both front shocks , went to strutmasters after checking the fourms. my wife is recovering from cancer and hard rides are not cgood for her , so I bought the conversion kit so I would not have to keep replacing air shocks . the kit is cheaper than the 2 shocks on front , my shop had them replaced in 4 hours and no suspension light , they said it was easy with strutmasters instructions. may car rides better than it ever did if you are considering a kit I say buy it you wont be sorry. Thank you for all your help will buy all cars shocks and struts from you folks from now on.”
“Last year my Jaguar started showing a faulty air system, the front end would drop down… only when the temp got to near freezing.
So after doing a fair bit of Googling, I found Strutmasters. The reviews all seemed universal in how Strutmasters equipment saved their car.
Well, now you can add one more to the chorus. My local shop whom I’ve done business with for years took the kit from Strutmasters and four hours later called me to say it was ready.
When I went to get it, she was standing much better!
I haven’t put too many miles on since, maybe about 70 or so. But, I can positively say that ride is back to at LEAST as good as it had been when the air system worked. I also have the impression that the car actually handles a bit better. I’m no racer, but she feels much more stable in corners!
I’m VERY happy with Strutmasters sales, shipping AND quality. All at a cost (with installation) that was about half the cost of dealership!”
I have a 2004 Jaguar xj8 and 1 of the air shocks went out, The mechanic recommended that I put on a conversion kit. I’m Glad I found these parts online. They cost Half what the mechanic was going to charge me and they are Quality Parts. My mechanic commented on them. Absolutely recommend
