2005 Lincoln Navigator custom wheels and tires

I have a 2005 Lincoln Navigator with 22 in wheels and tires that are 305/45/22. Aside from an alignment and speedometer re-calibration, do I need any extra hardware in order to maintain a comfortable ride?

    I bought a 2005 Navigator recently. I replaced the stock 18 inch wheels with custom 22 inch wheels. The new tires are 305/45/22. What else do I need to do? I am overseas and my friend back in the States is handling this for me.

    Lee,
    That works for me! I'll email Randy back in Texas and let him know that all we need is a speedometer re-calibration (18 inch to 22 inch) and an alignment. I'll check with you if I need something else. Thanks....Tim

You'll want to upgrade your brake system. You have a lot more spinning weight to stop now.

    After researching it some more on your model I would take it to the dealer and have them first do a ride height calibration and adjust the ride height to where it looks good to you but clears the wheels enough so during turns and hitting bumps tires do not scrape and it will probably ride just fine as it is.Doing the ride height adjustment they can put the height to any postion you really like.Then after doing this you would need to have a 4 wheel alignment done because changing the ride height will alter the alignment.

Unfortunately maintaining a comfortable ride is never a real option based on the fact of the rims, and the low profile tires. It will still have a great ride though being that its a luxury SUV. There is nothing else you need. As long as you do a clearance check you should be good. If there are any clearance issues you will have to work on it accordingly. If you need further assistance let me know also please take a moment to accept and rate my solution accordingly
Thank you,
Lee

Rear wheels tilt in at top


Drew normal to have a small amount of camber on cars. If your tires are wearing bad and you can notice it that much, take it into a alignment shop and have them check it out, if they can, ask for a pre check to see if there are worn components to be replaced(Bushings) prior to alignment. This way you will not have to pay for alignment twice. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

2000 Navigator Lincoln vibrates when driving


Could be a number of things (i.e. tire out of balance, axle shaft balance, etc....) I'd start with getting the tires balanced. You may have lost a wheel weight..and go from there.

My 2004 lincoln navigator is giving tire pressure monitoring system fault and front of driver side is extreeme low and take long time to rise.what to do?


OK, the tpms is a separate issue from the front drivers' side being low and takes some time to rise.

The shock or strut may be leaking in the front.

I would check to see if the ride leveling has something to do with the tpms error showing up.

Also, check that all tire pressures are even around all 4 wheels.

Does a 2005 lincoln navigator air ride system suppose to release air from the system when parked


Yes, to a point. It also depends on if you have it in 2 wheel or 4 wheel drive. The system jacks up the vehicle higher in 4x4 for clearance.

The suspension is suppose to drop when you park to make it easier to get in and out and to load the rear cargo area. You will therefore always have the suspension pump go on when you first start the vehicle. Your vehicle should set the same as other Navigators. If your vehicle looks like it has 4 flat tires, then that is too much.

You have a longer warranty with a Lincoln if you are still concerned about it.

When excelerate to 70 mph my steering wheel vibrates. What should I do?


This is very common. It can either be your tires need to be balanced. Or your car needs to be aligned at an alignment center. One or the other should stop the vibration.
