Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose).

  • Although I work here everyday, please understand it is not all day and rarely morning time.
  • To get the most from me and the best experience, please give me the best details you can.
  • The website will offer you a phone call option for more $$. Some I do fulfill and some I do not.
  • Thanks, let's get started.

Quite often the air suspension module is to blame for this. The module reads the height sensors, and controls the compressor relay and the air bag solenoids that allow them to open and accept the pressurized air. Do you own a diagnostic tool? I can help diagnose this if you have that kind of skill. Have you given any thought a spring conversion kit, they are cheap in comparison to repair cost.

Now that I have posted a partial or complete answer, you will see you can rate me. The deposit you have already paid is not transferred to me until you rate me. I would like to receive nothing less than 5 star excellent ratings. So if we are not there yet, please reply and let me help more. If you're not pleased, let me know because rating bad does not result in a refund, there are better options. Rating now will not close this post nor prevent replying. Thanks Chris

I have a scan tool. I can read live data, but can't find the suspension data.
Lincoln Mechanic: Chris (aka- Moose), Technician replied 11 months ago

It takes a pretty sophisticated scan tool to diagnose the air suspension. Most generic tools can not.
