HI. This is a common conversion attempt that can be achieved with the appropriate conversion kit. Of course, you will need to order the correct kit to make this possible. Many Expedition and Navigator owners choose the traditional shock/spring assembly over the newer and more problematic air ride assembly. The air ride assembly has many maintenance issues. If it is not keep up to specs, on a steady schedule, the entire system will fail, as you have experienced.

You can find many conversion kits online that can be delivered to your door step, or you can seek out a local shop for the installation, as well.

What size coil springs for 2001 lincoln navigator rear supension


That is not a question you ask on the internet,
& no one has any diagrams, unless they own the

You ask a dealer by giving the parts dept your

If your converting from air to conventional suspension,
then you ask the parts suppliers that sell the new parts

I just replaced my air compressor on my 2003 Lincoln Navigator. When I turned it on the rear end aired up to the highest it could go and my front never aired up....Help what could be the problem?


check for a leveler adjuster could be stuck or if you are sure that you have front air shocks the line could be leaking hoses cracked or broke or the shock itself could be damaged to check further to find the problem

Is there a heavy duty coil over shock I can use in place of the original rear shocks in my 2002 navigator?


If you mean as a substitute for the Air ride there are conversion kits. Just look in your Browser and search for terms like "Lincoln Air ride conversions", "Rear spring kits for Navigators", and so on.

There are also shocks with Booster springs which can increase load capacity.

In addition, several companies do repair the Rubber bags and you can get what you need from Salvage yards to put your ride back to original shape.

On some of the cars with Air ride, I believe it was $300 minimum for a conversion, for just the coiled shocks, I believe $120 a pair. Anything for a Lincoln Logo you will pay more and often. I have not used any of these kits, so I can not say how good they are or what the Install price is. The Web is the best place to price out these parts.

Forgot toi turn the air suspension off when


Remove battery, remove windshield washer bottle, remove air compressor and disconnect both air lines from the compressor dryer. Make sure compressor electrical wiring is plugged in, install battery, turn suspension switch to ON, turn ignition switch to the ON position, close all door and the compressor should come on and completely lower the whole truck. Once the truck is completely down, turn the ignition OFF, remove battery and connect both air lines. Install battery ensure electrical wiring is plugged in, turn ignition switch to ON, the compressor should come on and raise the vehicle to the correct ride height.
