Find out why Ford Motor Company wanted to buy our compressors to find our secrets! Get a Heavy Duty air suspension compressor for your Lincoln Navigator for 1/3 the price of the dealer! With over 14 years of air suspension compressor rebuilding under our belt, we go the extra mile and address the known problems of each model air compressor to make them better....so they will last longer and outperform ANY bolt-in replacement. An example of this would be the difference in our dryers. Our Navigator dryers are rebuilt and upgraded to help counter moisture related problems experienced on older vehicles. Upgrades like 10% more moisture absorbing gel beads......and seals made from a higher grade of rubber (used to seal the air lines) that will last 3 times longer than the plain rubber seals, which easily makes our dryers better than any other on the market! We are so confident in our Lincoln Navigator compressors, we are the only re-manufacturer to offer a full 2 year Unlimited Mileage Warranty with every compressor! Unless you require a vehicle with air suspension, you may want to consider an Air Suspension Conversion Kit.
Includes rebuilt 1998-2002 Lincoln Navigator compressor(OEM), rebuilt 1 hole dryer, 3 mounting insulators and a 2 Year Warranty(with core return & within 30 days).
Flat Rate shipping is just $13 anywhere in the 48 states!


We now offer a compressor/dryer rebuilding service where we rebuild YOUR existing unit. Same rebuilding process, Same Warranty....we just use your compressor/dryer instead. Rebuild cost includes rebuilt compressor, dryer & mounting insulators. While normal turnaround is usually 48-72 hours, if your in a hurry, it maybe a good idea to email first for an ETA. Click this link, or go to the main menu on the upper left of page. Rebuilding Services Available

How about a reference?.....how about thousands of references?......unbiased references? The one's that know us the best are the ones on the Ford & Lincoln forums(been there longer). You can see what we mean if you visit: markviii.org , Lincoln VS Cadillac, FordTrucks.com, Lincolnsonline & many, many more.
Or, you can simply Google American Air Suspension or it's owner Eddie Spinks, you'll see we're well known around the world as the Suspension Experts.

The biggest reason is that we go through the compressor during the rebuilding process......rather than just clean & paint everything that comes in the door! That's right, the majority of the so called "rebuilders" out there, simply clean & paint...then box up the part and call it rebuilt.
Another reason is good ole' experience. If you do something long enough, you can't help but to get good at it. We've been rebuilding Ford/Lincoln compressor/dryers since 1997 and have rebuilt thousands of them over the years. On a bet, we even rebuilt one blindfolded! ;-) Nobody, and I mean Nobody, knows more about your air suspension system.
Another is that the owner, Eddie Spinks was a veteran technician for Ford & Lincoln for over 20 years. He was able to experience both sides of the fence so to speak. Not only doing the compressor rebuilding himself, but also the troubleshooting & installs.
We were contacted by Ford Motor Company themselves years ago trying to find out how we make our compressors last so long. (no thanks)

The cheap compressors plastered all over the internet are a "one size fits all" kind of thing. They use one compressor for most models, but send different brackets to "make it fit" different vehicles. Most claim to be "American Made", but have a small white sticker that clearly says "Made in China".
We've torn these apart before and can assure you they are comprised of the absolute cheapest parts on the face of the planet! Even something as simple as o-rings, they look & feel more like plastic than anything.

Below are "Some" of the problems with Air Suspension

Having Lincoln Navigator Air Suspension Problems? You need to know a few facts about Air Suspension before you purchase this Lincoln Navigator Air Suspension Compressor 98-02.

1998-2002 Navigator Air Suspension Compressor 4x2

Hot Weather:ALL air compressors produce moisture, no matter the size. Bigger air compressor like whats in an auto repair shop or in most shade-tree mechanics garages, fuel air tools, blow sawdust and air up tires. Although the bigger compressors produce more moisture than a smaller one, the bigger compressor with a tank also has a way to easily drain the moisture from the system. Most people don't realize that an automotive air suspension system is just like an air compressor in their garage with one big difference between them. Because of all the low lying air lines and other parts(air springs - air struts) in the vehicle, there is no way to easily drain moisture out of the system. You've heard automobile air suspension systems have a dryer that absorbs the moisture? That is true, but keep in mind 2 things. #1) Having a dryer right off the air source is at best only 95% effective. The reason for this is because a rule of thumb when working with pneumatics, is to have the dryer or collector a good 6 feet from the source. This is to allow the hot moisture filled air, time to cool a bit where the dryer can grab it. Not allowing it to cool down a tad makes the whole drying system not as effective, because the moist hot air will blow right past the dryer. Short term(when the vehicle is new), you'll never have this problem, because the new dryer has collected most of the moisture and not enough moisture has collected in the system to cause problems.#2) The dealer won't tell you this, but because they want you to keep buying air suspension parts and to come line their pockets later on when your out of warranty, but most dryers used on these automobile systems only have a lifespan of 4-5 years. After this time has passed, the dryer pretty much turns into a collection point. In other words, instead of the moisture gel beads inside the dryer collecting the incoming moisture, the moisture is now just collecting in the dryer.....just sitting there. The moisture then plays a see-saw game of going back & forth from inside the lines & air springs - struts & back to the compressor. It makes its way back to the 1998,1999,2000,2001,2002 Lincoln Navigator Air Suspension Compressor, because most systems are designed to dry themselves by blowing air that's already in the system, back through the dryer & Compressor. Whats bad about that? What happened to all that moisture that was built up and sitting in the dryer? That's right, its now being forced....by high air pressure....through the compressor! These air suspension compressor generally have an estimated 40% duty cycle, which is considered light duty in most cases. They are designed from the factory to run bone dry and will be permanently damaged from ANY moisture.What makes these facts even worse? If an air suspension compressor produces moisture normally anyway, what does it do when it has to run 2-10 times more because of a leak in the air springs? Answer: Its going to make 2-10 times more moisture than it would normally!In other words, even if you spend $400-$900(not including labor) for another air suspension compressor, the moisture that has collected in the rest of the system all those years, that's still in there, will quickly attack & overwhelm the new dryer and then damage the replacement 1998,1999,2000,2001,2002 Lincoln Navigator Air Suspension Compressor! How long the replacement compressor lasts greatly depends on 2 things:1: How much it has to run = If the leak(s) in the system was repaired.If the leak(s) were repaired, you may have a chance. If not, the 40% duty cycle air suspension compressor thats made to run 2-10 times more than it was designed, will continue to run constantly until the small plastic parts(all of them have 'em) inside them start to melt. Running constantly is also hard on bearings and even armatures, due to the increased amperage draw from swollen(from moisture) parts(rings) inside.2: How much moisture was in the system. Over the years, we've experienced new $500+ factory 1998,1999,2000,2001,2002 Lincoln Navigator Air Suspension Compressor damaged to the point of not working at all, in less than 1 months use....due to excessive moisture in the system alone! One reason air suspension problems seem to show their ugly heads when it gets cold on air suspension equipped vehicles, is because the rolling lobe type air springs used on these vehicles get harder and less pliable the colder it gets.The rubber air bladder on these air springs are only 2mm thick and can't seal themselves as effectively when the rubber is hard(cold). ANY business selling air suspension parts would make way more money if you stayed with the air, as you will continually buy parts for it.While the air suspension system doesn't produce much moisture in colder weather, the collected moisture in the system does hurt system performance. When the moisture that is in in the dryer drops below freezing, the dryer can easily become a solid block of ice, not allowing ANY air to travel in any direction! This means no load leveling when weight is added, but also not venting the air after the weight is removed! Say you were lucky enough to have the 1998,1999,2000,2001,2002 Lincoln Navigator Air Suspension Compressor squeeze enough air pressure past the solid block of ice in your 10+ year old dryer. You take your car and drop someone off. NOW, the system can't relieve all the extra air in the system and you drive around looking like a 4x4.
With all this being said, before spending allot of money on the air suspension, consider a coil spring conversion. The more bells & whistles you have on your vehicle, that's more parts that'll eventually fail. If you don't need the air suspension, why ride around playing Russian roulette?
