Sounds like a dealer only part. Sorry. There are other routes you can take with these vehicles. you can change out the air bag suspension with regular shocks and struts.

I would guess your steering rack is worn out,
mainly because you don't flush the fluid every
3 years or not more than 30,000 miles, as you
should also do with the transmission, on ALL
your vehicles

Lincoln navigator air suspension

A lot of problems,with that system
If your keeping the vehicle,swap out the air shocks, for conventional
Do not go to a dealer. People on this site, are spending $4000.00, and the dealers,still are unable to repair.

2003 Lincoln Navigator: The air suspension is gone and I need to know which relay controls the module.

Go to ebay motors and check out the air suspension compressor for the navigator, Mine is starting to go as well, runs all the time and getting noisy. I talked to an expert that says they are easy to change out yourself.

yes dump it and do not ever buy another airbag suspension vehicle, even if it says BMW on the side.
you can buy a parts kit to turn it into a real suspension vehicle from however you better check around on the labor first.

HI ..I recently purchased a 98 Navigator and the previous owner had the rear air bags removed and now there is a 'check suspension " light on dash..can it be deleted ?? thanks Andy

I would re-install them myself, I liek them better, but you can try to find the air suspension control module. It is usually mounted on the AC/Heater box and it will have a black connector and a gray connector. Unplugging the black connector will turn off the “check air suspension light” but it will also disable your power steering tension (variable assist steering) control on the left side of the steering column. So after you unplug the black connector you need to remove the dark green/light green wire pin from the connector and then reconnect that black connector to the module. That will disable only the check air suspension light. Or to make quick work of it you can just identify that black connector to the module and cut the green wire. And be sure to isolate that wire because the “check air suspension light” will come on if it touches ground.
