If yours has the automatic load levelling system with air bags, you probably have a hole in one or both bags. I went through this and it isn't cheap. Good luch.

Can a faulty drivers door open module cause my 2003 mercury rear air suspension to sag?


Why would you ask that?

Drivers door module has nothing
to do with suspension,only windows
& door locks,limited body functions,
not suspension system

I would replace all four corners with conventional
struts/shocks & disconnect the air system,then
you have something worth having on your car

2001 Navigator rear suspension sagging. While


It sounds like one of your air bags could have blown. I would check them first. I would also suggest checking into a replacement non air conversion kit from Strutmasters. I replaced the air system on my 2002 Navigator and saved a lot of time, money and headaches.The lines on my navigator had holes in them and I replaced the compressor twice before I realized it. Very costly. Avoid all the hassle and check out Strutmasters.

2004 mitsubishi outander rear wheels tilting - extreme tyre wear.


Yes there is adjustment. You need to get the alignment checked out. It could be worn bushes and/or damage to the suspension linkages and struts.

2003 mitsubishi outlander rear tires tilt in


Had a similar problem with a different car. Rear struts / spings were worn. Caused rear to sag enough to push wheels out and wear out inside portion of tires.

look for creases with cracks in the air bags, if u have over 75,000 miles u can almost be sure the bag or bags are leaking. I am a Ford dealer technician and have very good knowledge of this problem, hardly ever see anything but defective leaking bags, and on occasion a disconnected load level sensor on the rear suspension, have u checked that?.

Suspension system 2003 X Type


That all depends on if you have the comfort or the sport suspension. The sport is a bit stiffer, and the comfort is pretty floaty. Now, repair shops will tell you that you need to replace the shocks every 50,000 miles, however they should be good for at least 100,000 miles. But, how to tell. There are 3 items to check- how much "dive" does your front end have when you brake? If it is significant, then you might be due. The opposite is true when accelerating off the line. Finally, push down on the front and back end with your hands, and if it bounces straight up, then you should still be good on your shocks.

If you have rattles from the shocks, either the mounts or the shocks themselves might be bad. You want to replace the shocks in either case.

Note, that replacing the shocks on the X Type is extremely expensive.
