    i have a 2003 navigator and 3 weeks ago the compressor started to make noise like trying to pump the suspensions up to a level the car now last week i dont hear the compressor anymore and the whole truck dropped, now and then the air supension comes up except for the left front side is drop.,this week says check suspension and now again the truck stays low. i went to lincoln and they told me that i need to replace the left front shock 500$ and the relay 200$ now the truck looks slanted to the left cause they pumped it up but lincoln says i have a leak on the shocks i wanted to know if it does cost 700$ to replace these 2 parts.also cant i just patch the leak?i bought the truck 2 month ago from a dealer and also wondering if the delear knew about the issue cause its also not cover by the warrenty.

I would recommend going to strutmasters.com and taking a look at our conversion kits. these convert you from the airbag to a powder coated American made steel coil spring that is guaranteed to last the life of the car. Airbags and compressors are constantly having to be replaced. Also something alot of people don't know is that theses air suspensions are not meant to be in temperatures above 90 Degrees or below 40 Degrees. That is most of the world. The temperature will cause you to replace alot of bags. and typically when your replacing a bag you are going to have to replace the compressor to because the bag had a hole or small crack in it causing the compressor to over work and it will die. I posted the link below so you can take a look http://www.strutmasters.com/lincoln-suspension-parts-s/1.htm I hope I was of some help Good Luck!!!

    I have an 03 Navigator and my suspension crapped out about 6 months ago and I sent a fortune on OEM parts to replace the failed parts. Then they failed again, finally I went to Strutmasters and purchased their deluxe conversion kit and it fixed all of my problems!!!!

I had the same problem and went to a mechanic. He told me that the alternator or rotater what ever it's called was rusted or something. Because it was rusted it was not able to rotate and pump the air shocks. Think you should go to a mechanic.

My 2003 lincoln navigator just left garage and now it leans completely to the left


This vehicle has a air ride suspension option which can read the height of the vehicle, when weight is added the suspension will compensate by appling air to the front and rear shocks. When weight reduced it will lower by venting air from the shocks. If the entire vehicle sits low there is a problem with the air compressor circuit (quite often water in the system and freezes causing damage to the compressor). In your case if only one side is low, check the front and rear shocks, the lowest wheel probably has a leaking shock and can't rise.

2004 Lincoln nave, rear wheels jacked up high, front wheels normal, rides real rough??? any thoughts???? Thanks,


Replace the air suspension with conventional shock/strut
conversions. The Air Ride System is not worth investing
time and money ,after the vehicle is 5 years old.
Too expensive to maintain ,and too difficult to diagnose

Next time buy the Ford version of the vehicle

My suggestion to you and all the other folks leaving questions on this board about collapsed air suspension systems in luxury cars is to fix that one by replacing it with a real spring and shock system which you can buy at www.strutmasters.com if it is economically feasible, then sell it and avoid air suspensions systems like the plague. There are legions of old 70s Citroens still sitting idle 30 years later on collapsed air suspensions systems in garages and barns all over the country which cars the buyers can't let go because they cost so damn much. Get a coleman air mattress and use it every day, see how long it really lasts.
