Question about Cars & Trucks

2 Answers

I have a 1999 Ford Expedition and the fluid in the shocks are leaking out. I have ordered some new ones. I am fairly handy with cars but something tells me it's not a matter of removing the air line and replacing the shocks. Do I need to have the vehicle (front) jacked up and go through any procedures to disable the load leveling suspension?

I bought a non air conversion kit from Strutmasters. I love the ride! This air stuff got to be such a hassle for me and my wife. We spent a lot of money on our car and still didn't fix it. Strutmasters was very helpful and we got our kit put on in no time. If you have air on your ride call them. :)

You may want to turn the air suspension off before you go and try to remove the old shocks. Dealing with these air lines and what not can be kind of tricky. If you want to save you some time, and money check out Strutmasters. They offer air to non air conversion kits that will fix your vehicle up in no time.

What couses the air suspension to air up more then it shoould on a 1999 ford expedition ?

There are height sensors. One for the rear end and I believe one at each front wheel .If the vehicle is going up on all four corners then chances are you've got a controller issue , but if it's only in the front or rear then you've got a sensor issue.Hope this helps

I just bough a used 99 ford expedition. i just noticed there is a leak under the car in the back somewhat between the two back tires, what type of leak is this

3 types of fluids back there.

1. gear lube in the differential.
2. brake fluid in the brake lines (pedal would be sinking if brake line broke open).
3. fuel from the fuel tank (you would probably smell it).

Most likely your driveshaft seal is leaking where the driveline enters the differential. If you have more questions or need instructions, please let me know.

My air suspension compressor runs periodically and is very noisy; when parked, my vehicle squats in the back.

You have a leak in one of the air lines,the compressor never fills the shock up with air because of the air leak,so it will not cut off,either the lines have a leak,or one ,or both shocks have leaks in them.

Hydraulics are shot, how much to repair? Is it

The shocks are worn? If the rest of the truck is in good shape i'd say it's definately worth replacing. All four shocks installed shouldn't run more then $600.

What are the best aftermarket shock's for a 97edd baure

If the rough road is the issue new shocks will make the truck ride even stiffer, if you must replace the shocks because of fluid leaks then stick with the factory shocks from your local Ford dealer, they are the exact right one for your truck. this is a SUV and by nature they are stiff riding,
